Thai massage is a unique combination of yoga-like poses that you do with the assistance of a professional massage therapist. As you complete your poses, the massage therapist will simultaneously, use his or her hands, feet, elbows and fingers to press and massage energy points called "sen," which are similar to the acupressure points and meridians spoken of in Chinese medicine. This type of massage makes a great complement to the training you are receiving in your San Diego yoga classes. Thai massage is designed to clear energy blockages, improve circulation and lymph drainage and leave the patient feeling thoroughly relaxed afterward. Thai Massage is called "Nuad Boran" in Thai and it was developed over 2000 years ago. This technique is considered to be a complete, holistic healing system.
Thai massage does not use any oils or lotions and you can wear comfortable, flexible clothing that enables free movement similar to what you would wear to a yoga class in San Diego. Thai massages can last from one to two hours, so be sure to schedule ample time for preparation before and relaxation afterward. The massage therapist works from the feet up, assisting you through the poses and working the acupressure points all along the way. The massage therapist should be aware of your comfort level so that she can tailor the pressure to your needs. You will also need to pay close attention to your breathing throughout each pose. Your massage therapist should be able to help you focus on this, and it will make your Thai massage an amazing and fully-relaxing experience.
Thai massage is becoming very popular because of its noticeable health benefits. Participants report that Thai massage sessions leave them feeling deeply relaxed, yet mentally aware and focused. For this reason, it is excellent for people who suffer from heavy loads of stress and stress-related health conditions. It can boost mood and improve the mind-body connection while releasing energy blockages that hinder full healing. Because it is a full-body massage/yoga workout, the improved circulation helps the cardiovascular system, digestion and lymph drainage. Studies also show that the health benefits of Thai massage include a positive impact on the immune system.
