ABOUT THAI MASSAGE
Traditional Thai Massage, also known as Ancient Massage or Thai Yoga Massage, dates back more than three hundred years in its present form, with its origins going back more than 5,000 years to ancient India and China. While Thai Massage combines elements of Ayurvedic medicine, Hatha yoga and Chinese acupressure, it has evolved into a system that is entirely unique and is widely regarded as one of the best systems of therapeutic massage.
Benefits of Thai Massage
Most of us know that massage feels good; but therapeutic massage, such as Thai traditional massage, also provides relief to a multitude of specific health concerns. Therapeutic massage is part of an integrative care approach to many medical conditions
An important element of Eastern medicine is the concept of life force or energy. In Yogic terms, it is referred to as prana, in Chinese it is called chi, and in Thai it is called loom. All are referring to the basic principle of life force energy, which flows along specific channels. Along these channels are specific energy points that, when blocked, the energy is in excess in one area of the body and a deficiency in another.
In Eastern healthcare, it is said that disease is initially caused by tension, stress, or dis-ease. Typically, there will be pain or tension in some areas of the body (often causing toxic build up) before certain symptoms of an ailment will incur. It is to our advantage to work on physical imbalances before they develop into more serious diseases and before the toxic build up has caused damage to our internal organs.
Traditional Thai massage is more precise and energizing than other forms of traditional massage. Traditional Thai massage provides benefit by stimulating pressure points on to open the body’s energy pathways, allowing healing energy to allowing healing energy to flow freely and allowing the body to heal itself.
Traditional Thai massage helps a person’s muscles, joints, ligaments and fascia by relaxing muscle tension, relieving the spasm, and improving the range of motion. The combination of pressure on specific points and yoga like stretches in traditional Thai massage relieves areas of muscular stress and tension. In fact, recipients often report that their muscles stay loose days after a session.
Many health benefits have been associated with Thai Massage, including:
Relief from stress and muscle tension
Relief from aches and pains
Unblocking and balancing of energy flow
Increased flexibility and range of motion
Release of endorphins
