Massage has long been considered the foundation of human health and beauty. It is a procedure that only helps to relieve tension and relax after a hard day, but also to overcome some ailments. There are many varieties of massage, but today the so-called “Thai massage” is in absolute trend, the birthplace of which is considered to be ancient India.
Often many people associate Thai massage not with recovery and relaxation, but strangely enough with eroticism and sex. Why is this so? This kind of massage acquired this “strawberry” association in the second half of the 20th century in Thailand. It was here that the priestesses of love rendered their sexual services under the guise of a relaxing rubdown. Of course, it had no connection with the real procedure, but the association was firmly fixed in the minds of most people.
What is the real Thai massage? It is not just a procedure, but a whole system that includes various techniques for the recovery of the whole body:
The methods and techniques of Thai massage are selected individually, but all of them are aimed at improving the physical condition of the body and eliminating energy imbalance. After all, if we believe Indian and Thai healers, who have been practising Ayurveda for a long time, the cause of all diseases of the soul and body are considered to be violations of the correct circulation of energy.
The intensity of the massage can be low, medium and high, sometimes not only massage movements with hands, but also influence on energy meridians with the help of feet and elbows.
Surprisingly, Thai massage originally originated in India under the guidance of the healer Shivago Komparaji. It came to Thailand along with Buddhism, Ayurveda and yoga about 2500 years ago.
The Indian healer and his followers actively spread their knowledge of the special effects on the meridians of the body, certain organs and joints. This knowledge became the basis of the Thai system of recovery, which includes herbal treatment, yoga, saunas and, of course, classical Thai massage.
The knowledge and techniques of massage were not written down, but passed on orally from master to master. In the second half of the 19th century, diagrams of massage points were carved on stones in one of Bangkok’s monasteries, where they are still found today.
Today, there are two of the most popular schools of Thai massage in Bangkok:
Thais remember the Indian healer even now: before the session each masseur recites a special mantra dedicated to “Doctor Father”.
What does a Thai massage session look like? You should not be afraid and worry, because the practice is very similar to passive yoga. The duration of the procedure is from 2 to 3 hours. Practitioners assure that with a shorter duration, the body simply does not have time to rest and relax.
Form of clothing – free, but it is better that it was a natural T-shirt and trousers, in which the client will feel comfortable and cosy.
Studio 5 massages in Kiev offers clients a classic Thai massage, which consists of:
Our Thai massage specialists move from the feet to the head: it is believed that this movement is the most effective. The session ends with rubbing the face – this not only washes away signs of fatigue, but also helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Experts of classical Thai massage claim that one session is equal to three days of rest in nature. This is really true, because such a massage helps:
Thai massage is also highly recommended for therapeutic purposes: it will help to cope with back pain, get rid of numbness in the neck and shoulder area, facilitate recovery from sports injuries and surgeries.
