Thai massage is also known as Thai Yoga massage, is a traditional massage which concentrates on Indian Ayurveda principles, acupressure, and yoga postures. It is developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand 2,500 years ago. In this massage, the recipient is asked to wear loose clothes or yoga gear and is done with no oil or lotion. It uses gentle pressure and stretching on the body. It increases flexibility and relieves joint tension. It helps to maintain the body’s energy system.
If you are the first time going for a spa, then you may not find Thai massage to be friendly as you will be asked to lay on futon mat and the therapist will be putting their body weight on you to achieve passive stretching. Thai massage is relaxing as well as energizing. It works on rhythmic pressing movements into muscles by hand or fingers. The body is compressed, pulled, and stretched by the therapist. It uses a variety of techniques in different positions like lying face down, seated, lying face up, or on their side.
There is no guideline on how often one should go for Thai massage. After getting Thai massage, you should maintain your routines with regular stretching and relaxation techniques which will help to remain stretchy for a long time. If you want to work on a specific part of the body, then you can schedule and plan an appointment with the therapist for regular sessions.
In some health conditions, Thai massage can be risky; thus it is suggested to consult your physician before going for it.
It is recommended that if you are having an injury, then you should avoid Thai massage as the physical intensity of this massage can further worsen the existing injury. Although the therapists are well trained to adjust the depth of massage but avoid till you are not completely recovered.
