Doing yoga is relaxing for the body and the soul, and so is having a massage. Thai massage incorporates both practice to relax and invigorate you. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, which uses the 2,500-year-old Ayurvedic body science. A Thai massage involves specific yoga poses to stretch the muscles. The poses are assisted by an experienced Thai massage masseur, which means that anyone can have a Thai massage. Many spa days’ packages are now including Thai massages as more people are becoming aware of the benefits of a good Thai massage.
Benefits of a Thai massage
1. Releases Muscle Tension
Thai massage have a specialised way to relieve the tension in the muscles. They also have a longer lasting effect on the body than other massages. An experienced Thai massage therapist uses their knuckles, fingers, hands, and feet on pressure points of the body, while they are holding you in various yoga positions. The combined use of both stretching and massage are better adapted at relieving the tension and stress in the muscles.
2. Improves the Circulation
Like regular yoga, a Thai massage works to help with your blood flow. The poses cause the blood to flow into the targeted areas. Once you are done holding the pose, the blood rushes into the desired areas. The twisting and inverting that occurs in Thai massage positions like the spinal twist and shoulder stand are some of the most refreshing positions for circulation. A Thai massage can also help with digestion and lymphatic health.
3. Emotional and Mental Stress
There are a lot of daily activities that you do that can cause stress. Dealing with stress in a healthy way is why many people take time off for spa days. Thai massage relieves mental and emotional stress by manipulating the muscles and engaging the subjects for a fully immersive and relaxing experience. The optional use of essential oils in Thai massage is another great way to take stress and negative emotions off your mind.
4. Boosts the Immune System
Along with being relaxing for both the muscles and the mind, Thai massage also helps to boost your immune system. Since the nervous system is being reinvigorated, and toxins are removed from your body due to improved circulation, your body is better equipped for self-healing and handle many of the common illnesses and diseases of everyday life.
