How Families Can Keep Tensions Low


While Self-Isolating 

Get outside…

No matter how much we love our families, we all need time apart from them once in a while. Unfortunately, if you’re self-isolating together, time apart can seem nearly impossible. Since stress levels are already higher for many of us right now, it’s easy to wind up at your loved one’s throats if you don’t work to reduce some of that tension. Here’s a look at a few tools families can use to keep the peace while isolated at home: 

Create (and Respect) Alone Time

When everyone’s constantly together in one house, it’s hard to find time for yourself. Instead of finding it, create it. Consider scheduling in specific times of day when everyone enjoys some quiet, individual activities such as reading, art, or listening to music over headphones. You can also practice self-care by trying Ruesri Dat Ton, a Thai method that focuses on breathing and stretching exercises. ThaiMassage-NYC can teach you how to do this correctly. 

If scheduling downtime wouldn’t work for your family, you can try establishing “Do Not Disturb” rules and signals around the house. For example, you can give everyone a door hanger they can use to indicate when they’d like to be alone. This is especially useful for families that are isolated while managing remote work or school since it can also be used to establish work-time boundaries.

Connect Virtually

Another issue with self-isolating with your family is that it’s easy to get frustrated when you only see the same people every day. Psych Central notes that it’s important to find ways to connect with non-household friends and family members, now more than ever. Thankfully, our digital world allows us to meet up with people in a variety of virtual mediums. 

Video chats are the go-to virtual meetup, but you might be getting bored of the usual conversations. Mix it up with one of these video-chat-friendly party games. You can also look into multiplayer online video games. Whether you’re using VR, playing competitively, or trying out an online co-op game, these are fun and innovative ways to connect with people outside of your household. However, you need powerful service from your internet – otherwise, you might wind up frustrated by lag or poor connection.

Get Outside

Self-isolating doesn’t mean you have to be trapped in the house, you just have to be mindful about what kind of going out you do. Although you should avoid crowded places, socially distant outdoor activities are just fine – and extremely important. Medical Daily explains that we need sunlight, fresh air, and exercise to stay physically and mentally well. Don’t succumb to cabin fever! 

Walking, biking and hiking are just a few of the outdoor activities you can try – alone or as a family – to boost your mood. Try to get at least thirty minutes of active outside time every day. This will help you feel more energized and less cooped up inside. 

Maintain Healthy, Positive Relationships

Finally, focus on keeping an open, respectful dialogue at all times in order to foster healthy communication and keep relationships with your loved ones positive. Blaming or criticizing others can result in too much negativity, and can actually make the home a less-than-ideal environment to live in. You can benefit from cleaning up those negative vibes by first getting the home clean and cleansed (sage is useful for this). Then, practice communicating in a gentler manner, while avoiding anger or loudness.

Isolating at home can be a challenge for a family, but tackling it together will help. Prioritize alone time, get outdoors, and stay connected with those in and outside of your household. This will ensure that you get through this time stronger than ever!

Session Duration

Consider these options

Your therapist will take an inventory of your individual condition and devise a plan to address your objectives.

Arrive early enough to fill out the health history questionnaire before your session time begins.

“Intro” $135

A one-hour treatment is also a good option for “first-timers” who wish to satisfy their curiosity about the form of bodywork. If you are a small person and you just want to enjoy the benefits of man overall wellness treatment, this might be the best choice for you every time. Choose 60 minutes if do not have a specific problem area of the body that you wish to have addressed but you just like to have a Thai Massage as often as possible.
I always prefer to have a longer appointment whenever I get a Thai Massage, but the hardest part is getting in the door. 

“Basic” $168

75 minutes is a good choice for clients who are small and in great shape. When I say, “In great shape” I DO NOT mean slim and slender. I mean, a body that is not suffering from stiffness or restriction of movement. Possibly, you were considering the description of the 1-hour treatment but you happen to be a medium-sized person.
Just 15 min. added to the “Intro” option makes a lot of difference in a Thai Massage experience.

Incredible benefits

restore the mind, body, and spirit.

“Therapeutic” $201

In Thailand, 90 minutes is the typical duration for massage treatments.
If you have specific issues that you would like to have addressed by therapeutic massage during your session, 90 minutes is always a good choice because this will give us enough time to complete a full-body sequence AND give additional specific attention to your chief complaint.
If you don’t have specific
issues which need to be addressed but are rather large, book 90 minutes to make sure we have time to cover all of the real estate.
If you are elderly, book 90 minutes to make sure we can move slowly through the sequence and not have to leave anything out because of it.

The benefits of Thai Massage are numerous

the most predominant being the maintenance of good health and its ability to treat a wide spectrum of physical concerns in addition to its ability to calm the mind and elevate your mood.

“Thorough” $267

I used to call this option “The Whole Thing” but now I find that I can no longer complete everything inside of 120 minutes unless my client is quite small or already very well experienced with this kind of bodywork. Do your body a favor, give us the time we need to work out the trouble spots. 

“More Thorough” $396

Thai Massage actually goes by surprisingly fast. Consider adding on another hour just to make sure you don’t miss the chance to be more thorough. In Thailand, it is not uncommon to get 3 hours of massage. Not too many places on earth are further from Chiang Mai than NYC and the two could hardly be more different. Find out how “far away” from NYC you can get inside of 180 min. without ever leaving the massage studio.

“The Whole Thing” $528

Take a day” and spend it on yourself. Four hours will give us enough time to thoroughly go over everything and then go back to the areas that are particularly troublesome and do some more to treat them.
Four-hour time-slots come with a complimentary Herbal Compress, deep heat application, Tok Sen, and Cupping therapies.

Walk-in

If you are already in the area and you don’t have much time.
The 30 and 45-minute sessions are not available for advance booking.

30 min. $68

A proper Thai Massage including face-up, face-down, side-lying, seated, and inverted takes 90 minutes or more, but that does not mean that we can’t realize some good benefits within small amounts of time. 

45 min. $99

Sometimes we want to have a small sample before we commit larger amounts of time and money. Sessions lasting less than 1 hour are not available for advance booking, but you can call or text on the day you want to try us out, and we will try to squeeze you in.

Thai Massage 

MOVEMENTS, COMPRESSIONS, STRETCHING

and more since 2008..

Ever since the first time I had an opportunity to try Thai Massage, I knew it was what I wanted to do.

I had chronic back pain for 25 years due to an injury that I suffered from an auto accident. I tried Chiro and other therapies but the Thai Massage was more effective than any other.

Not only did Thai Massage deliver results with relief from the back pain, but the effects also lasted longer and I always noticed that I could think more clearly and have a cheerful and optimistic attitude after a session as well.

These are the main reasons that I decided to dedicate my practice to Thai Massage since 2008.

Thai Massage soothes the body, Calms the mind.
