Thai Massage is an ancient honored art and practice, which began in the holy temples of Thailand over 2,500 years ago. While influenced by the healing practices of massage and yoga from Ancient India, the traditional Thai Massage is a practice unto itself. Considered by Thailand’s people a practice of both a necessity and proud tradition, this ancient practice was founded by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, renowned physician to Lord Buddha himself.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Sometimes a masseuse places the stones along “energy medians” for added relaxation. Other experts will often hold the stones and incorporate them into the massage. Whatever their use, you can be sure of their benefit. Hot Stone Massage is perfect for those prone to chilly hands or feet during their session.
These heated tools not only provide a pleasant weight and heat to your massage, but also promote relaxation for a deeper session. The heat relayed by each stone also expands the client’s blood vessels further for increased blood flow throughout the body.
This benefit not only flushes toxins away from vital areas, but also improves delivery of necessary oxygen throughout the system. Those who enjoy this technique can expect improved circulation, deeper muscle relaxation, release for stiff joints and tendons, as well as a mental serenity. This technique may just be the perfect addition to your massage session. Perhaps during the chillier months, you can seamlessly add this technique for frozen muscles or enjoy its benefits year-round.
