Traditional Thai Massage

Traditional Thai Massage is a style of traditional medicine that uses acupressure along sen lines and passive stretches.

Thai Massage is new to western spas, but it has been a style of alternative medicine for hundreds of years. A Thai massage is typically a full-body massage lasting up to two hours. It uses a combination of passive stretches and gentle pressure along the body’s energy line system to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension, and provide relaxation. Recipients wear loose-fitting clothing and lie on a massage mat or other cushioned floor mat.

What Happens In a Traditional Thai Massage?

A traditional Thai massage treatment at Sirius Health is a treatment that can last up to three hours. During a traditional Thai massage, we apply acupressure along energy channels called sen lines using our hands, elbows, arms, knees, and feet. We also stretch you by moving your body into yoga-like positions that help increase your range of motion. This stretching is why Thai massage is sometimes called lazy man’s yoga or assisted yoga, but in actuality, the origins of Thai massage are in Traditional Thai Medicine and not yoga.

Traditional Thai massage removes blockages that inhibit the body’s energy force (Prana). Using a combination of stretching and acupressure on pressure points and along energy channels (called Sen), our goal is to restore balance to the body.

Thai massage has apparent benefits for increasing flexibility and range of motion (ROM), but there are other benefits. The stretches help relax your muscles, loosen your body and improve the ROM in all your joints. 

The movement in this style of massage helps to enhance blood circulation in the body, which brings more oxygen to your brain and lowers the chance of blood clotting. And a Thai massage encourages slow and deep breathing that balances your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The result is that your body functions more efficiently and faster.

A monthly Thai massage is helpful for those who do not get enough physical exercise. However, the effects of regular Thai massage are cumulative. If the goal is health maintenance, recipients will feel better and have less stress and tension by having a Thai massage every week or two.
