Thai massage soothes muscular pains, relieves tension, eases sprains, and stimulates blood circulation by the application of pressure on various points of the body, kneading along nerve lines, and stretching various parts of the body from head to toe. The massage heals muscular pain and tension and serves as a great approach to profound relaxation.
Thai massage is more a healing art than one of relaxation found in Western or Swedish style massage. In Thai massage, the massage specialist concentrates on pressure points across the body where an abundance of energy has built up. Releasing this energy and evenly distributing it across the body to create a balance is the basis of Thai massage.
