Thai Massage Varieties
Traditional thai massage
The word massage does not mean the same thing as it is understood in the typical western usage. In the west massage means a rub down and refers to techniques derived from Swedish Massage and regular Massage Therapy. Thai Massage Phaen Boran Ráksãa Thaang Nûat is completely different! It is a healing art of the Theraveda Buddhism and Buddhist medicine.
The Thai system focuses on circulation of vital energy in major pathways called Sen. The major energy lines are manipulated, and important pressure points along these pathways are stimulated to help break down blockages, stimulate energy flow and restore balance and harmony.
Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the thai masseur and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The thai masseur uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create a dance of movement on the body of the recipient. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and physical and mental well.
Through assisted yoga, the body is stretched in ways that are difficult to attain through individual exercise and yoga practice. The result of a full-body Thai treatment is often an exciting and powerful mind/body healing experience, bringing both the recipient and the practitioner to heightened states of physical and spiritual well-being.
Thai Massage is done on a mat or a table. This allows the masseuse to get the necessary body leverage needed for the stretches and Yoga-like positions used in Thai Massage.
