Traditional Thai Massage
Thai massage has been around for over 2500 years. It has been used as a form of treatment to heal many health issues including, but not limited to, muscular-skeletal tension, internal conditions, and emotional stress. Thai massage is a wonderful treatment to balance the body, mind, and spirit. Thai massage practitioners apply acupressure to the meridians, which are energy lines that run throughout the whole body. This technique helps to lively up the body and loosen any energy blocks. The practitioner performing Thai massage also uses various forms of stretching for the tendons and muscles. This increases joint mobility, blood circulation, and flexibility. Pressure is applied to various points to release muscle tension and increase blood and lymphatic circulation throughout the body. Practitioners combine yoga stretches, muscle massage, stimulation of the meridians lines, and joint manipulation throughout the massage. Some techniques require therapists to use their hands, elbows, knees, or feet. A typical Thai massage session will last at least 90 min. Thai massage is performed on a thick mat on the floor, with the receiver fully clothed, and no lotions or oils are utilized.
