Exploring Thai Massage
Are you feeling slightly overwhelmed at the endless amounts of massage treatments on the market?
Each week, we will be exploring various massage treatments in more detail to enable you to determine which is the best option for you, your health and your journey to pure relaxation!
Now, let’s find out more about ‘Thai Massage’, where it originated, what is involved in the treatment and the overall health benefits.
What is it?
Thai Massage originated over 2,500 years ago by Buddhist Monks in Thailand. The treatment is a combination of Swedish massage, neuro muscular techniques, acupressure, physiotherapy, reflexology and yoga stretching. Seen as the complete opposite to your ‘standard’ back, neck & shoulder massage you would expect to receive in a spa or salon, therapists ask that you are fully-clothed, whilst laying on the ground on a futon.
What is involved?
The therapist will work the back of your legs and then your back using a walking motion with their hands. Each zen line is treated using a finger and thumb technique. Gentle stretching into yoga positions are said to help flexibility and a range of motion whilst lying face up, lying face down, seated, or on their side
Benefits of the treatment?
