Types of Thai massage
Christmas is approaching, and at the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we are getting ready to dazzle from the inside out. Today we are travelling from our Temple of Relaxation to Thailand to discover the different types of Thai massages. Are you joining us?
Thai massage is a millenary technique, which is applied all over the body, from head to toe. This is a stretching and deep massage.
Which are the different types of Thai massage?
Traditional Thai massage. This is the most popular Thai massage and also the most traditional one. It is known as the “Yoga massage”, and it is performed while you are fully clothed, usually on a padded mat on the floor. It combines acupressure and yoga techniques. It helps relieve joint, muscle and tendon tension. It also provides vitality and promotes complete relaxation.
Thai oil massage. This is a very smooth type of Thai massage applied with oils. It is much more relaxing than traditional Thai massage. It is performed on a traditional massage stretcher, with a towel over the body. Its function is stimulating through acupressure the meridian or energy lines of the body. Due to these aromatherapy oils, this massage improves blood circulation, softens the skin and calms the mind.
Thai pinda massage. This is a combination of traditional Thai massage and ancestral healing methods based on the application of plant pouches all over the body in order to make energy flow. Pindas (hot poultice filled with medicated herbs) allow acting onto the acupuncture points to relax the body. It relieves muscle and joint pain and improves blood circulation.
Thai foot massage. It consists of massaging the feet with massage oil applying pressure to specific areas of the soles of the feet, which correspond with different organs of the body. The pressure on these points release toxins and improve its functioning.
