Why have a Traditional Thai Massage ?
The massage recipient will usually undress and change into loose, comfortable clothes and then lies on a firm mattress on the ground or raised couch. Thai massage rooms range from a sole occupant private room right up to as many as twelve massage customers within the same large room. The receiver of the massage will be subjected to a number of yoga-like positions throughout the path of the massage therapy, but deep static and rhythmic hand movements of the masseur and sometimes foot massage movements will make up the core of the Thai massage experience.
The masseur massages around the recipient's body using their hands in most cases with straight over arms locked in the elbow and using firm rhythmic pressure applied to the client's body areas. Asian massage generally follows the chi-lines on our bodies - which is somewhat similar to meridians or channels and Indian nadis. Legs and feet from the masseur may be used to fixate and stimulate the body of the recipient.
In other positions, hands fixate the body being massaged , and the feet may also perform the rubbing massage action. A complete Thai massage session typically lasts up to two hours or even more, and includes rhythmic pressing and stretching from the masseur which might include tugging fingers, toes, ears, cracking the knuckles, walking around the recipient's back, and arching the recipient into various complicated traditional Thai yogic postures. There's a typical procedure and rhythm towards the massage that the masseur will adapt to fit every individual client.
The real practice of the skill of healing in traditional Thai massage may be the compassionate intent from the healing properties of the therapist. As Thailand is a Buddhist nation with nearly 96% of the population being Buddhist Thai yogic massage encompassed Buddhist spiritual practices connected with Thai massage which are to cultivate humbleness, awareness, and concentration within the masseur and can result in a much deeper degree of understanding from the masseur and also their client. This compassionate condition is called "metta", which translates from the Pali as meaning "loving kindness".
