What is a Thai massage?
Thai massage is a very old and traditional Asian technique. It appeared in Thailand and was used by hermits, also called “Buddha doctors”.
There are several techniques for performing a Thai massage:
- The traditional massage
- Oil massage
- The herbal massage
- The foot massage
Thai massage has several benefits: it soothes the pain and tension present in the body and restores tone and energy. This massage also allows an energy rebalancing which goes hand in hand with a regularization of sleep.
This massage is quite energetic, so it is not recommended for children and pregnant women!
How is a Thai massage performed?
The course of the massage is different depending on the technique used:
Traditional Thai massage:
This Thai massage technique is inspired by different Asian massage techniques including shiatsu and yoga.
You are dressed in cotton pajamas because the massage is not done directly on the skin.
During the performance, the masseur uses several techniques: superficial touches and pressure on the skin. Alternating these two techniques allows you to perform a massage that will relax and tone your muscles.
In addition to waking up your body, traditional Thai massage has another benefit: it helps to harmonize the energy produced by your body which is used for the proper functioning of the organs.
Thai herbal massage:
The masseur places plants in a ballotin which is then heated with steam. The use of herbs helps stimulate the flow of energy in your body.
The massage begins as a traditional massage where you wear cotton pajamas. Once your muscles are relaxed, the masseur places the bundles directly on your skin. The heat combined with the effect of the plants helps to relieve the tensions present in your body.
Thai oil massage:
This time, the massage is done directly on the skin, without cotton pajamas.
This technique is more relaxing because the masseur uses aromatic oils to perform the massage. The movements are therefore more fluid and continuous.
Your whole body is massaged to stimulate the energy of your whole body and your muscles.
Thai foot massage:
The masseur massages your feet, calves and legs with a wooden massage stick.
This massage stimulates your internal organs. Indeed, it can be likened to plantar reflexology because your internal organs are stimulated thanks to pressure applied to different areas of your feet.
In addition to relaxing you, this technique has the ability to prevent and cure digestive disorders, the feeling of heavy legs and migraines.
Whichever technique you choose, you will feel the effects of the massage for a few days. You will feel better than before this massage!
Why choose a massage at home rather than in a spa?
Why do a massage to revitalize yourself and eliminate all your stress if it's to tense up again when you get home because there are traffic jams on the road or because the tube is full? It is useless to pay for such a massage if its effect does not last! A massage at home allows you to enjoy the effects of the massage even after the mobile massage therapist has left.
In addition, home services are not more expensive than in an institute, contrary to what you might have thought. The price of one hour of Thai massage in a spa or institute can vary from £60 to £150. In London, a 60-minute massage with a Wecasa practitioner will cost you £64.90, for 90 minutes it will cost you £89.90.
So choose a home service in the comfort of your living room with a mobile massage therapist who comes with all the necessary equipment rather than going to an institut. At Wecasa, Thai massages are given by masseurs and masseuses and are offered for men and women, so book your massage now on Wecasa Massage!
