Thai Massage Overview
Thai massage is one of the hot, “new” massages offered by most spas. But the techniques of Thai massage were actually developed 2500 years ago by Buddhist monks for healing.
Thai massage uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy. When this balance of energy in the body is achieved, this will increase the efficiency of the organs that detox the body. And detoxification of the blood and tissues will result in stronger subcutaneous tissues in the skin.
Some people describe Thai massage as being a little like doing Yoga without any effort. The therapist will push your body into various positions without any work on your part. Thai massage is done with clothes on so if you are uncomfortable with the nudity associated with Swedish massage, then Thai massage might be a better choice for you.
Having a massage of any kind is very relaxing but Thai massage has its’ roots in a spiritual tradition. Thai massage is designed to nourish and heal the mind, body and spirit. Thai massage will benefit you in more ways than one. The extra benefits include a balance between mind, body and spirit that will result in the systems of the body working together more efficiently. So take a break from cellulite lotions and try a Thai massage for the overall great benefits.
