History of Thai Massage & Its Health Benefits

POSTED BY ADMIN | massage | 26 Mar

A typical Thai massage in Manchester is a profound, full-body treatment that starts at the feet & ends at the head. Employing a string of mild, flowing exercise movements, the body of the recipient is moved, loosened and stretched to boost muscle flexibility & joint range of motion.

This unique form of massage also persuades the vigorous side, reinstating the energy flow all through the body with applied acupressure on the Zen energy lines of the body, targeted at harmonising & enersising. The Thai massage method varies from a typical massage in that the recipient is completely dressed & no oils are applied.

Typical Thai massage dates back to nearly 2,500 years ago. Because of its geographic position, Thailand has been persuaded by Indian and China in many aspects like culture, religion and medicine. A traditional Thai massage mixes a massage system from Thailand & conventional medicine systems of China, India, Southeast Asia and yoga. AS Thai massage being so close to the Indian yoga customs, it is often known as Thai yoga massage.

Thai massage in Manchester integrates several yoga poses such as: forward bends, back bends, spinal twists, cobra, locust and more.

When I undergo a Thai massage in Manchester at Manchester Massage a few months back, I got into a meditative position and feel as though everything is flowing. The session passes very quickly and when it is over, I feel relaxed yet energized. My body is actually very relaxed during a session and every movement is coordinated with my breath, which helps me relax, and allows for energy to flow.
