By Contributor Jira Suwanrot (Jukkie), Registered Massage Therapist
Often referred to as passive yoga and sometimes referred to as Thai Yoga Massage, Traditional Thai Massage is a natural bodywork therapy with profound healing qualities, having the same benefits as Yoga, Tai Chi and Martial Arts.
What is Traditional Thai Massage?
Traditional Thai massage is an ancient and dynamic body work therapy whereby the practitioner skillfully places the client into a series of yoga-like postures and stretches, while applying compression techniques using their palm, thumb, elbow or feet via slow and mindful movements. The massage is performed on comfortable floor mats, and the client is wearing loose clothing that allows for movement.
Traditional Thai Massage is a relaxing and rejuvenating form of passive yoga. With Tai Chi and Eastern massage techniques combined, clients are taken through a full range of motion resulting in an increased sense of well-being and stress relief, while stimulating the detoxification process by balancing the body’s meridians. Sessions complement all body types and are tailored to the individual needs of each client.
What are the benefits of Traditional Thai Massage?
The health and wellness benefits of Traditional Thai Massage are many. By restoring the flow of energy in the body, it can increase flexibility, range of motion, athletic performance, mental clarity and energy levels. Most clients immediately feel more physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually balanced. The nervous system, blood flow and relaxation response are all stimulated while simultaneously relaxing the mind and body.
