Traditional Thai Massage is part of a holistic treatment which works on your mind, body and spirit as a whole, rather than by treating just one specific aspect. For instance, if you are suffering from stress, you may experience headaches and tension pain. Traditional Thai Massage is based on the ancient Indian and Chinese theory that in a healthy body, energy is flowing freely – and if that energy flow becomes obstructed, then illness may result.
Thai massage is more energizing and vigorous than other forms of massage Westerners are accustomed to. It is sometimes called Thai yoga massage because the therapists puts you through a series of yoga-like stretches with the assistance of their hands, knees, legs, and feet. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without much effort being put into it – the therapist is doing all the work for you. In addition to stretching, muscle compression, joint mobilization and acupressure are also used during treatment. It works effectively on muscle, tendon and ligament injuries as Traditional Thai massage incorporates elements of deep tissue massage.
