The Many Benefits of Thai Massage
The popularity of Thai massage is exploding worldwide for no other reason than it's effectiveness in treating and healing conditions that are problematic for Western Medicine to handle. In particular, it is quite effective in treating structural injuries that result in chronic pain and reductions in range of motion.
In a recently published article entitled, “Benefits of Thai Massage—Not Your Average Massage,” author and expert, Danielle Serano, writes:
“Thai massage isn’t like the massage you might be used to. Traditional massages usually entail lying in one position and being kneaded for an hour or so—a lovely experience nonetheless.”
Thai massage, also known as a yoga massage, is a little more rigorous than a regular Swedish type of massage.
“During a Thai massage, the therapist will stretch you, put you in all kinds of different positions, and massage by applying pressure in areas throughout your whole body with thumbs, arms, elbows, feet and knees,” she writes.
Thai massage works on the muscles, ligaments, nerves, joints, as well as the internal organs. It affects the whole body as one organic unit.
“In a Thai massage, the massage therapist will manipulate these energy meridians until it feels that the energy is no longer stagnant. Once the tension and flow of energy has improved, they will begin the stretching,” Serano writes.
