Traditional Thai massage has been used in Thailand for more than 2,500 years for muscle relaxation and healing. The technique focuses on the invisible energy lines that traverse the body called “Sen”. Although there are 72,000 invisible energy lines, only ten of these are essential for the healing of all the body parts and internal organs. Traditional Thai massage principles work on the basis that when these energy lines become blocked, many ailments can result.

The experience involves a combination of gentle pressures along the Sen Lines and Yoga-like stretches, because of this it is often referred to as a type of assisted Yoga.

It corrects blockages, deficiencies, and imbalances in the flow of this energy, which then is believed to improve the client’s health.

Traditional Thai massage has many benefits. Whether you are the receiver of the massage or the giver of the massage, you can feel joy, ease, and comfort. The massage will open up your chakras, allowing you to have a more peaceful mind as well as benefiting your health.

Unlike most Western bodywork modalities, Traditional Thai Massage is done with the client fully clothed in loose, comfortable clothing that allows for stretching.

No oils or lotions are used. The massage is done on a mat on the floor. Pillows and other props are often used in order to allow the client to be comfortable in various positions.

A session may last 60-90min. When done well, a Thai Massage flows and has a meditative dance-like quality. Intuition, mindfulness and spiritual focus are considered to be part of the work done by a Thai Massage practitioner.

Here are few things to expect during a Thai massage session:

  • The therapist will actually use their hands, knees, legs, and feet to move your body into various positions.
  • You should think of a Thai massage much like yoga without doing any of the work.
  • Therapist also incorporate muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure to loosen body and joints.
  • You will not only feel relaxed but energized as well.

 

Thai Massage Benefits

  • Total Relaxation: By relieving the blocked energy lines with rhythmic hand manoeuvres and stretching, you can achieve total relaxation of your body. Relief from emotional stress and improved sleeping patterns is also often reported.
  • Flexibility: The stretching maneuvers will help to maximize your range of motion and flexibility in your limbs. During the yoga-like stretches your muscles and nerves are stimulated to their maximum straining point relieving stiffness.
  • Toning down: The repeated slow and gradual hand techniques will reduce pacing of your bio-rhythm while relaxing. Your muscles are relaxed which helps to promote better circulation around your body, which can help bring your blood pressure down to its relaxed state.
  • Beneficial circulation: With the promotion of better circulation and lymph flow through the general relaxation of your muscles, your circulation can deliver an important energy boost to where it is needed throughout your body. The continuous flow of lymph in your body promotes detoxification and better immunity.
  • Brain Circulation: By exercising pressure points to the Sen Lines around your head, better circulation to the brain is encouraged. With the increased performance of the circulation in your brain, an improvement in clarity of your thoughts is reported along with preventing migraines and vascular headaches.
  • Better Athletic Performance: Traditional Thai massage tones your muscle groups systematically and stretches your joints to their full range of motion, which improves your athletic performance. In addition, the improvement of chest muscle positioning is said to promote better respiration during aerobic events. With the improved circulation throughout it is also easier for your muscles to rid themselves of the lactic acid which builds up during heavy exercise, the result being that you can maintain the intensity of activities for longer.
  • Pain Relief: Many conditions and injuries involving your body’s muscles and joints benefit from regular massage. With the relaxation of muscles and the improved circulation short term pain relief is very common with people reporting a significant reduction in pain following a massage. Because of this it is recommended to include regular massage as part of your pain management plan.

  • Don’t eat a heavy meal before a massage.
  • If it’s your first time at Massage Sense, arrive at least 10 minutes early to complete the necessary forms and change. Otherwise, arrive at least five minutes early so you can have time to change before starting the massage.
  • Be sure that your massage therapist has your complete health history because people with certain conditions should not have Thai massage.
  • If you feel discomfort at any time, let the therapist know.

 

Thai Massage on a budget

Unfortunately, few insurance companies cover this type of massage unless its prescribed as part of physical therapy for an injury or another health issue.

You should ask your insurance company if they cover Thai Massage, and we can provide you with a detailed invoice.

However, there are some ways you can reduce the financial burden of treating your body on a regular basis.

If you plan to have regular Thai Massage sessions at Massage Sense, we developed several discounted packages that will certainly meet your needs.
