The benefits of Thai massage

Therapeutic massage and Thai traditional massage provide relief to a multitude of specific health concerns. Therapeutic massage is part of an integrative care approach to many medical conditions.

Traditional Thai massage is more precise and energizing than other forms of traditional massage. It benefits by stimulating pressure points to open the body’s energy pathways, allowing healing energy to flow freely and allowing the body to heal itself.

Traditional Thai massage helps a person’s muscles, joints, ligaments, and fascia by relaxing muscle tension, relieving the spasm, and improving the range of motion. The combination of pressure on specific points and yoga-like stretches in traditional Thai massage relieves areas of muscular stress and tension. In fact, recipients often report that their muscles stay loose days after a session.

Additionally, traditional Thai massage helps a person’s cardiovascular system by dilating the blood vessels, so the circulation is increased. Another benefit of traditional Thai massage includes improvements to the nervous system, that is, by stimulating the sensory nerves causing the central nervous system to respond better.

Furthermore, some people suggest that, by blocking pain signals to the brain (gate control theory ) and activating the parasympathetic nervous system to stimulate the release of endorphins and serotonin, traditional Thai massage helps prevent fibrosis or scar tissue, increases the flow of lymph, and improves sleep.

Traditional Thai massage is also especially good at releasing mental and emotional stress. The benefits of traditional Thai massage include those of other types of massage, such as improved circulation, release of muscle tension, mobility, and flexibility, as well as stress relief. However, traditional Thai massage goes further; it’s more specialized techniques will help promote a balance of all the body's systems, body, mind, and spirit to create the complete sense of wellbeing.

If you are looking for increased benefits from a massage, traditional Thai massage is a good choice.
