Your body is where you live, and no one will ever argue that regular maintenance isn’t important for your body. This maintenance can be achieved in a multitude of ways, from healthy diet and regular exercise, to regular grooming habits and the occasional indulgence. But like a soft wave against hardened stone, many fail to recognize the importance of protecting themselves from the one element that causes the slowest and most degrading damage: stress.
The demand for massage therapy continues to grow each year, with a projected 22% labor demand increase over the next ten years. As more people realize the importance of stress management, a new question arises: what types of massage will provide you with the most benefits?
The Traditional Thai Massage
You might be familiar with the aggressive Swedish massage that quite literally pounds the stress from your body, but many are now turning to the calmer, more relaxing Thai Massage instead. Rather than lying in one position while a massage therapist works the knots and kinks from your body, Thai massage therapy instead walks you through a number of relaxing yoga poses designed to relieve physical, mental, and spiritual stress as well. Don’t worry, you won’t be asked to pull off any downward dogs or complicate crane maneuvers, in fact, all you have to do is allow the masseuse to do their own thing. They’ll support you, and move everything for you. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy.
Benefits for Your Mind, Body, And Soul
The benefits of a traditional Thai massage are nearly uncountable, but here are a few to get you started:
Release of muscle tension – This is the most common massage benefit, leaving your muscles feeling loose and relaxed for days, sometimes weeks later.
Improved circulation – When your body is held in a yoga pose, blood is forced to that area, and then released. This constant movement promotes healthy circulation.
Release of mental and emotional stresses – Thai massage is one of the few options that also incorporates progressive breathing practices and meditation, leaving you relaxed and calm.
Improved immune system – By reawakening your nervous system and rejecting toxins from the body with improved circulation, you’ll feel a positive immune boost in no time.
