If you feel tight, constricted and in pain from too much sitting at your computer and not enough movement, thai massage therapy is the massage style for you. This unique style of therapeutic massage is often described as “yoga-massage” or someone “doing yoga to you”. Thai massage combines gentle stretching movements with deep muscle pressure and joint traction to release tension in the body. This technique is especially effective for relief of tight hips and low back pain. Thai massage is both invigorating and deeply relaxing. You will feel more wonderful lengthening and stretching through your whole body.
The benefits of Thai Massage stretching
Stretching keeps your muscles supple and flexible, releasing holding patterns that come from our daily habits. Sitting all day, staring at a phone or computer, long drives, all cause our muscle to shorten and become tight. Most tension seems to settle into our shoulders or hips. Traditional thai massage specifically addresses these areas of tension and can make us feel more open and alive.
THAI MASSAGE THERAPY CAN:
- relieve pain and tightness in the shoulders and hips
- bring awareness to areas of imbalance in your body
- increase range of motion
- stretch and open your muscles in a way that is hard to achieve on your own
- make you feel more open and alive
- improve athletic performance and help with recovery
- calm and quiet your mind
- reduce stress and tension
- create a positive experience in your body
After years of practicing the combination of thai and deep tissue massage, one of the most profound things I’ve noticed is how opening the body, opens and expands the mind and emotions. Not only does thai massage stretching help your physical body it can also help your mental and emotional balance.
