Thai massage is a different type of massage than traditional Swedish or Sports massages. It is a rigorous, deep-tissue massage with lots of stretching working deep within the body and connective tissues. Therefore, you should make sure to explain any relevant medical or health history with me before your session.
Also, if you have any of the following, you should avoid this type of massage.
Additionally, massage should not be done directly over bruises, tumors, abdominal hernia, inflamed skin, unhealed wounds, or areas of recent fractures.
Studies have shown that people who go for massage sessions regularly tend to be more relaxed and usually have lower levels of stress. Stress causes long-lasting problems in the body and leads to many health issues. Thai massage, just like a traditional massage, leaves the patient feeling more tranquil which brings stress levels down, however, due to the yoga-like movements, the patient will feel more relaxed and more flexible at the end of their massage.
The use of deep-tissue manipulation over the full-body promotes better blood flow and circulation, which are more benefits of Thia massage. With the combination of better circulation and better blood flow, the body receives more blood and oxygen, promoting better overall health.
Stretching the body in yoga-like movements and clearing energy build-ups by working acupressure points, the patient will be left feeling more energized than when they came to the session. Having more energy is a benefit on its own but with the combination of relaxation, lower levels of stress, better circulation, and blood flow, Thia massage proves to have overall therapeutic effects.
