Traditional Thai Massage
Thai massage focuses on the meridian points, resembling acupuncture as well as the shiatsu massage therapy. According to experts, these meridian points are important in order to maintain a good body condition. These key points are where the experts place pressure during the Thai massage. This works the same way as with acupuncture which is a very popular method of relaxation. In addition to that, this will help get rid of stress and toxins in your body.
Instead of the relaxing gliding and kneading motions characteristic of more popular forms of massage, Thai massage employs stretching, pulling, and rocking techniques to relieve tension and enhance flexibility and range of motion. It is sometimes called the “lazy person’s yoga.”
The therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and also applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure.
Swedish Oil Massage
A Swedish body massage is the perfect way for anyone who is overly worked and stressed out to relax their body and mind. During this massage the therapist will use several techniques on the muscles, ligaments, nerves, and soft tissues all over your body. As the therapist relaxes the muscles the lymph system will have the ability to flush out all of the metabolic waste from the muscles. This will help you to heal faster.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage breaks up and releases the built-up toxins by loosening the muscles. With the toxins released, blood and oxygen can circulate, as they should through one’s body. Being properly hydrated before you go to your massage appointment and drinking plenty of water after one of these massages is highly recommended.
