Therapeutic Thai Massage combines modalities of Traditional Thai and deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and acupressure to alleviate chronic conditions so as to bring wellness, comfort and mobility to the client.
The therapeutic component focuses attention on the specific problem area by applying pressure at certain acupuncture and trigger points related to the ailment along the body’s energy pathways. Each specific treatment point is held for 5 to 10 seconds so as to improve the energy flow and help the body regain balance. The pressure is firm, yet relaxing.
It is not uncommon for the practitioner to spend an hour providing therapeutic treatment on the problem area such as the neck or shoulder. And depending on the condition’s severity, treatment on the chronic area may, though not always, feel more painful. However at the end of the treatment, the client usually feels much better than before the treatment began.
Ideal for anyone who suffers from chronic pain and discomforts or limited mobility due to athletic training, repetitive movements, internal malady, or overuse. Prior to beginning the massage session, a consultation is required to address specific conditions of the client.
Hot compresses or heating or cooling products may be used to help alleviate the symptoms, whether to release tension, decreases pain, invigorate muscles or balance internal organs.
