Thai Massage originated from India and with the incorporation of Chinese medicine, Thai Massage was founded. This classic massage is done by the masseur using their thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, feet, knees and shin to press and manipulate your body into a series of yoga-like positions during the massage.
You will be lying on a cushioned mat with your entire body fully relaxed during the entire process, as your entire upper body weight will be supported. Therefore, your masseur is physically strong and fit to be able to support you during the massage process.
The masseur will start relaxing all your major joints from your ankles and progresses up your body to your knees and to your hips, shoulders, wrists and spine. Unlike other types of massages, only the joints are concentrated and by relaxing the joints, the body will be relaxed.
The entire massage process consists of muscle compression, joint mobilization, acupressure and stretching. Through the pressing and stretching, it will help stimulate the pressure points deep within the body.
While the poses are to help relax both the body and restore properly circulation of the energy flow. It begins with pressing to stimulate energy flow in the Sen to release blockages that results to pain until the masseur feels that your body soft tissues are adequately pressed then stretching will begin.
The stretching will begin subtly but will increase gradually, the large scale stretches are what Thai massage is known for. One of the usual stretching style is when the masseur will press down on the body with his/her body weight and keeping the elbows locked to help restore proper circulation of the energy flow. You can also tell your masseur to use your preferred level of strength (low, moderate, strong).
At the beginning you think that your body is inflexible but through the massage process, you will be surprised how flexible your body is. Regardless of health or age, you are able to go for Thai massage.
