Thai massage is based on the idea that energy moves through your body along predictable lines or pathways known as sens. To increase the flow of energy along the sens, the practitioner will move your body into yoga-like positions in addition to pulling and rocking your body in various ways.
The combination of stretching, movement, and pressure is what distinguishes Thai massage from other types of massage.Thai massage may be a good option for you if you want a more active type of massage, where you move and participate instead of lying down throughout your massage.
With Thai massage, you can wear your own loose-fitting clothes. You’ll lie on a mat on the floor. Once on the mat, your practitioner will slowly move your body through multiple stretches, using the weight and pressure of their body to assist you. The practitioner will use their hands, thumbs, elbows, and knees to stretch, pull, and rock different parts of your body.
Thai massage has many health benefits, from lowering stress to relieving muscular tension. It can increase energy, improve flexibility, reduce headaches and stimulate circulation.
