Massage Therapy for Anxiety and Stress

Thai massage has a wide range of benefits. Here are some benefits for how it will impact your muscle. Some joint pain is caused by tight (shortened) muscles which pull on the joint, causing pressure and sometimes misalignment of the joint. The combination of gentle massage and stretches in Thai massage relaxes and lengthens tight muscles. This takes pressure off the joints and allows them to fall back into proper alignment, relieving the pain. Additionally, the muscular flexibility gained in a Thai massage allows for greater range of motion in the joints.

Difference between Thai massage and other kind of massage

The main difference you will notice when you receive the work is the stretching. While Thai massage is not the only massage modality that includes stretches, it is most likely the one with the most extensive amount. The work is done on a mat on the floor instead of a massage table, which allows the therapist better leverage for application of the stretches. Due to the slow, meditative nature of the work, a typical Thai massage session lasts 1.5 hours.

Tips for the best Thai massage in Hanoi

  • Do not get a massage if you are injured. The healing qualities of Thai massage are helpful for most everyone. Clients of all ages enjoy the work and its benefits.
  • Don’t feel rush. As mentioned above, traditional Thai massage sessions are 1.5 hours in length. Add to that the review of your health history and general getting to know you time. Plan to spend at least 2 hours at your appointment.
