What Sets Thai Massage from Other Types of Massage?
A massage can do wonders for the human body. It can relax muscles, relieve pain and in some cases, even help in the therapy of some major and minor injuries. It has many types—Swedish massage, Thai massage, Western massage and many others. No matter what kind of massage you get, it surely will help you relax and relieve the tension from a long work day.
A person normally gets a massage from a licensed therapist for reasons that involve fatigue and cramped muscles. Nowadays, getting a massage can be for recreational purposes. Someone can get a massage just to relax and unwind; for some couples, they get a massage together as a form of bonding and get together.
What are the different kinds of massage?
There are many types of massage depending on what your body needs. A skilled therapist may likely be able to offer you all kinds of massage whenever you need it. Here are the different types of massage a therapist may likely offer you during a massage session:
1. Swedish Massage
- A very gentle and relaxing massage that uses light gentle strokes.
2. Aromatherapy massage
- A type of massage that makes use of aromatherapy oils for its many benefits. The most commonly used type of aromatherapy oil is lavender.
3. Hot Stone Massage
- A type of massage that makes use of therapeutic stones placed in specific pasrts of the body.
4. Deep Tissue Massage
- Targets the deeper muscle layers for a more intense massage therapy.
- A type of Japanese massage that puts pressure on specific points of the body for a more targeted type of massage.
6. Thai Massage
- The therapist moves and stretches you into different yoga-like positions. Thai massage is considered as one of the most popular types of massage.
How does Thai Massage differ from all other massages?
During most massages, you lie on the massage table while the therapist massages parts of your body prompting you to move from time to time to. The Thai Massage is different—instead of having you just lie there and move from back to front at times, the massage therapist changes or shifts you into many different yoga-like positions.
A Thai Massage is more energizing and a lot more intense than regular massages but you have to be ready because its intensity may be too much for some people. Before getting a Thai Massage, you have to know what you are in for. Rest assured, however, that you will get the relief your body has been aching for.
