Thai massage – also known as Thai Yoga Massage, or informally as ‘the lazy person’s yoga’ – combines assisted yoga with acupressure techniques. The therapist will incorporate yogic stretching movements as they knead and press muscles along the body’s energy lines with the hands and feet. Thai massage combines the principles of acupressure whereby the Sen is stimulated, which is said to balance the energy system in the body. The passive stretching can also help to open up the body which can help increase flexibility and relieve tension within the joints and the muscles. A Thai massage treatment typically begins at the feet with the client lying face down and is more energetic and rigorous than your usual massage. The therapist will also often use their hands and feet to apply pressure, and the treatment usually is done through the clothes, although oils and lotions can sometimes be used if requested. In your consultation you should make your therapist aware of any areas with poor range of motion, injury or sensitivity. The treatment is typically provided on a futon mattress, or other foam-style padding placed on the floor. The main benefits of Thai massage are: *Improved flexibility and range of muscle movement through assisted stretching *Blood flow is increased, and circulation assisted *Release of physical tension to relieve aches and pains *Release of emotional tension held within the body, combating stress and providing a feeling of relaxation *In addition to these benefits, like all massage, the stimulation of the nerves and skin cells can improve skin quality and muscular function, and contribute to an overall sense of well-being.
