We all know that life can be stressful. Whether it’s work or home, everyone can use a break from time to time.
A Thai massage, although an unconventional variety of massage, would be a great way to forget your worries. Sessions are carried out on mats and, as Bebe, the owner of Blue Sand Mind & Body describes it, “A Thai massage combines muscle stretching with yoga and targets the body’s major pressure points. The pressure applied to the muscles can be soft, firm, or intense deep tissue, depending on the preference of the client. You will see and feel the results during the massage and for the next couple of days. This massage allows for an experience that will leave you in a greater state of physical and mental well being”. Thai massage has been around for two thousand years in Thailand and is an integral part of the culture.
If that doesn’t peak your interest, a Swedish massage may be more your style. This is what everyone thinks of when they hear the word “massage”. Bebe claims, “A Swedish massage would be best for someone who’s never had a massage before because it’s more gentle and relaxing.”
A Thai massage varies from a Swedish massage because it doesn’t require you to remove your clothes. Also, instead of using only their hands, the practitioner will use hands, thumbs, elbows, forearms, and palms, to help you lock into the poses that will help best release your energy. The Swedish massage uses a standard elevated massage table, rather than the cushioned floor mat that is used for the Thai massage.
As for the many benefits of receiving a massage, Bebe lists the following, “it releases stress, tension, and body pain. It also relaxes the muscles and refreshes your mind and gives you a sense of well being. Often, many people think of a massage as a luxury or a special treat, but in many parts of the world regular massage is a part of their fitness regime.
