Thai Traditional massage looks like a cross between acupressure, yoga, and zen shiatsu and is inspired by Buddhist teachings.
The actual massage consists of slow, rhythmic compressions and stretches along the body’s energy lines, also called sen in Thai. Over 70,000 sen are said to exist within the body, and Thai massage concentrates on applying pressure along 10 of the most important sen, using the palms of the hands, thumbs, elbows, and feet. The effort from the therapist works to free tension within the body. The therapist also positions the body into yoga-like poses and gently rocks the body to open the joints and facilitate limbering.
Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work. Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment.
People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing. Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. The best thing about Thai massage is that, like yoga you get flexibility, inner organ massage, oxygenation of the blood and quieting of the mind. Through deep muscle stretching, joint release and emphasis on the breath, Thai massage offers many of the same benefits as yoga.
Many people find that Thai massage has the following benefits:
- Reduces stress
- Improves circulation
- Increases energy
- Increases flexibility
- Improves range of motion
- Centers the mind and body
No preparation is needed before receiving a Thai massage. A Thai Traditional massage is performed on a massage table at Bai Pho and the client changes into a comfortable and loose fitting shirt and shorts that are provided.
No oil is used in a Thai Traditional massage, and a massage usually lasts one to two hours.
