The History And Benefits Of Traditional Thai Massage
Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is a therapeutic technique of bodywork that was founded over 2,500 years ago by Jivaka Komarabhacca, personal physician of the Budda. Thai Massage is a natural, holistic approach to health and well-being, developed over thousands of years.
Thai Yoga Massage it's a unique and powerful system consists of slow, rhythmic compressions along the body's energy lines and stretching of the joints and muscles, gentle twisting, energy work and meditation. Thai massage concentrates on applying pressure along 10 of the most important energy lines, also called sen in Thai, using the palms of the hands, thumbs, elbows, and feet.
Thai massage works off the belief that tightened muscles lead to the diminished flow of energy in your body. When energy can't flow freely, you become inflexible, suffer pain and feel stiff. Overtime, this leads to shortened muscles and connective tissue that affects your posture, immunity and organ function.
Thai Massage creates a powerful release of stress and tension. It is a therapeutic procedure that provides relaxation and restores healthy blood circulation. It also treats energy blockages, weakness, dysfunctional organs, aches and pains.
A Thai massage is performed on a floor mat-enabling practitioners to use their body weight and to incorporate the many movements that would not be possible with a massage table. The client remains fully clothed, and lubricant for the skin is rarely used.
