Chiropractor In Amarillo Talks About Thai Massage In Amarillo

What is Thai Massage?

Thai massage is believed to have been developed by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, physician to Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago in India. Massage made its way to Thailand, where the Ayurvedic techniques and principles gradually became influenced by Traditional Chinese Medicine. For centuries, Thai massage was performed by monks as one component of Thai medicine.

What Does Thai Massage Feel Like?

Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage.

Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work.

Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also implemented during treatment. People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing.

What Should I Expect During My Visit?

Thai massage is usually done on a padded mat on the floor. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed. You are usually asked to bring or wear comfortable clothing to the massage.

A typical Thai massage is 60 minutes to two hours long.

Many people find that Thai massage has the following benefits:

• relaxes

• reduces stress

• improves circulation

• increases energy

• increases flexibility

• improves range of motion

• centers the mind and body

Here is a great demonstration to give you an idea of what a thai massage looks like, but keep in mind there are many different ways and techniques on how the massage os performed on a individual.

Thai massage is great to loosen up muscles and increase range of motion in all the joints.  This type of massage is very popular among athletes to increase their sports performance. But you do not have to be a athlete to enjoy all the benefits of Thai massage.
