Rejuvenating Thai Massage in Philadelphia Relieve Stress, Increase Energy, and Enhance Athletic Performance

Thai massage is an ancient healing practice that is known for relieving stress, reducing chronic/acute pain, and improving overall well-being. It is a dry massage therapy and does not use any oils or lotions and is widely popular for its therapeutic effects.

This massage is based on principles of correcting the energy balance through the body. The therapist typically starts from the extremities of the body laterally, works towards the core of the body medially, and then comes back to the extremities. This approach helps improve the flow of energy through energy channels and improves blood circulation throughout the body.

Why Thai Massage?

Thai massage benefits almost every part of your body and is different from all other kinds of massage therapy that usually involve tissue manipulation. A Thai massage therapist uses deep compression, rhythmic pressing, and stretching actions similar to Yoga that ultimately improves regional blood circulation and releases muscle tension.

Benefits of Thai Massage

Thai Massage has been in practice for several thousands of years and is widely popular even today because of the myriad of benefits that it offers. Some of the most prominent reasons why people seek Thai Massage are:

  • Relaxes and lengthens tight muscles
  • Relieves chronic and acute pain
  • Reduces stiffness and knots in muscles
  • Improves muscle tone and flexibility
  • Reduces musculoskeletal pain such as back pain and shoulder pain
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Improves your body posture
  • Helps remove toxins from the body
  • Increases immunity to diseases
  • Reduces the intensity of migraine and tension headaches
  • Releases mental and emotional stress
  • Reduces soreness and fatigue
  • Helps sleep better and improves sleep patterns

  • Enhances athletic performance by improving flexibility, agility, and speed

In traditional Thai massage, massage therapists use their hands, thumbs, elbows, forearms, and sometimes even feet to reduce muscle tension. It is based on the idea that energy moves through your body along predictable pathways. To improve the flow of energy through these pathways, Thai massage therapists will move your body into yoga-like positions. It is the combination of movement, stretching, and pressure that makes Thai massage distinct from others.

How do I prepare for Thai massage?

Thai massage involves active elements as it includes yoga-like stretching. Hence, there are a few things that you should keep in mind while getting ready for a Thai massage:

  • Wear comfortable clothing that stretches easily
  • Do not eat one hour before the Thai massage
  • Do not apply lotion, oil, topical medications, or patches before Thai massage
