Traditional Thai Bodywork

from 70.00

Traditional Thai bodywork: is a style of bodywork, developed by a physician to Buddha named Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha. The style found its way to Thailand, causing its Ayurvedic techniques to become integrated with the traditions of Chinese medicine. Initially, Thai bodywork was practiced by monks as part of Thai medicine.

Typically, Thai bodywork is more rigorous than other forms, which also makes it more energizing. It is also referred to as Thai yoga bodywork because the therapist may use his or her arms, knees, and feet in addition to hands in order to manipulate the muscles through yoga-like movements. Some therapists may also use acupressure during sessions.

What are the benefits of Thai bodywork?

Like other forms of bodywork, Thai bodywork has many benefits, both physical and mental/emotional. Some of these benefits can be experienced after only one session of Thai bodywork, while others become apparent after multiple, regular sessions.

One of the biggest benefits is the relaxation that comes from it. Numerous studies have shown that those who have bodywork are more relaxed, and many seek out bodywork as a form of relaxation. This, paired with the yoga-like elements of Thai bodywork, which is also relaxing, ensures that Thai bodywork can help even the most tense person find relaxation. Along with this, Thai bodywork is an excellent way to relieve stress. Since stress can have long-term and serious effects on the body and mind, using Thai bodywork to help relieve stress will help improve overall health.

Because of the deep-tissue manipulation involved in Thai bodywork, another benefit is increased circulation throughout the body. The physical touch of the bodywork promotes blood flow, and when you have increased circulation and improved blood flow, blood and oxygen get to your body more effectively, improving your overall health.

Thai bodywork is a full-body bodywork. Since the bodywork therapist moves your body in yoga-like positions and movements, regular Thai bodywork can also increase your flexibility and range of motion. This can be particularly helpful during a physician-approved rehabilitation program following an injury or illness.

Because Thai bodywork is more rigorous than other forms of bodywork, it is more invigorating. The benefit of this is that you will walk away from your bodywork session feeling more energized.
