There is no question that massage in general has many benefits. Whether you choose Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, hot stone therapy massage or Thai massage, you can trust that you will leave the table feeling amazing. Many people who make massage a regular part of their health and wellness have developed a preference for one type over the other. Some of the benefits of massage include:
- Improved circulation
- Relief from muscle aches and pains
- Increased flexibility
- Better sleep
- Improved mood
If you are new to massage, or you have been sticking with only one type of massage, it is worth it to try others. Thai massage is a very "physical" type of massage. Where Swedish massage focuses solely on loosening and stimulating muscles through touch, Thai massage uses a more interactive approach. During the massage, the practitioner will stretch your body in yoga-like movements in addition to working on your body through massage. These movements gently stretch your body, improving flexibility.
In addition to the actual massage and the stretching, massage therapists also use acupressure. One of the ideas behind Thai massage is that the technique helps remove "energy blocks." The result is that many clients report feeling relaxed, but also energized at the same time.
