Thai massage is a beautiful modality of massage therapy and I always tell people that receiving a Thai massage is like somebody doing yoga to you and massage all at the same time. And yes, it’s that good.
I was lucky enough to study Thai massage in Thailand in 2009 and have not yet made it back as much as I would like to. I’d love to take my whole family to Thailand. It’s an amazing country and it has spoiled me for traveling other places. Nothing compares.
Thai massage doesn’t leave you feeling like you need a nap the way a Swedish massage does. You get up from a Thai massage relaxed, but ready to get on with your day. The deep pressure stimulates the Sen Sib lines, the stretches are divine, and the overall effect is therapeutic, relaxing, and energizing.
If you have always wanted to try something different at the spa and didn’t know what to do, you might consider getting a Thai Massage. It’s pretty good mojo. I don’t know if you can tell from this picture, but her back is arched onto my knee and I’m lifting her arms to give a little traction to her spine.
I wish I could wake up every morning with a Thai Massage! Next time I go to Thailand I’ll let you know. We could take a group. Did I mention that Thai massages in Thailand cost about $3 for an hour? Yeah. You’ll want to go.
