Thai massage has many benefits for the individual. It uses the gentle pressure on energy lines and the yoga-like stretching to relax the whole body on a deeper level. This deeper level of relaxation improves the individuals' personal outlook, and their emotional status. Deep relaxation has been shown to promote a deeper, more restorative night's sleep as well. This deeper sleep allows the body to heal itself physical, and let you feel more refreshed upon awakening. 

Thai massage helps to reduce the individual's stress levels and improve their overall circulation. This is accomplished by the gradual movement of the person through different yoga-like positions. This will enhance the persons' flexibility allowing for a greater range of motion. This greater range of motion and flexibility reduces muscle stress and strain, and helps to prevent trip and fall accidents. 

The slow movements allow for the mind and the spirit to slow down and realize a true form of relaxation. It centers the individual. In doing this stressors will not affect the person as much. This will aid to level out blood pressure. These stressors, in later life, cause heart problems. In centering oneself, and lowering the reaction to stressors, one will lower the occurrence of heart problems. 

Thai massage allows the person to attain a true level of relaxation. The stress will be depleted from their muscles. This will facilitate a more fluid range of extension by the muscles. This will help to increase your energy levels. With healthier muscles and increased energy, the person will be able to maintain healthy weights. This will lower blood sugar levels, and reverse the onset of type 2 diabetes, and help with the maintenance of type one diabetes. 

Thai massage also enhances the circulatory system. It increases the circulation in the body. With increased circulation, more oxygen will be brought to the brain. This will lower the number of migraines and headaches the individual suffers from. Increased circulation will lower the chances of blood clotting in the arteries. Thai massage will rejuvenate and refresh you. It will help you think clearer because you will feel better after it. 

 

What are energy lines?

Energy lines are invisible energy lines can not be verified anatomically and are perceived to circulate throughout the body to maintain health and vitality.There are said to be 72,000 lines.

Thai belief is that there are 10 main lines that are sufficient to treat the whole body and its internal organs.

This is a non-religious or spiritual perspective and practice.

When this energy flow is blocked or restricted, it creates sickness or disease. To clear these blockages, Thai massage combines the application of pressure with manipulation, adjustment and muscle stretching in a full-body works, which improves overall health and well-being.

Thai massage is basically an assisted relaxing yoga session where a masseuse manipulates your body and applies gentle pressure to your muscles. your breathing is very important since it will aid you through each pose. Thai masseuses are trained to use both soft to hard pressure. The masseuse will guide you through various poses working the ten different energy lines that are said to treat different organs on these energy meridians. Because of this, Thai massages helps to balance your qi (energy), which in turn can promote healing.  The different poses in Thai massage force fresh circulation to specific areas of your body, helping with lymphatic drainage and the return of blood to the heart and digestion.

Thai massages are really quite relaxing since they return your body to a Zen-like state.
