Thai massage is a dynamic therapeutic practice combining Ayurvedic and yoga postures to facilitate a balanced flow of energy throughout the body. Introduced in India nearly 2500 years ago, this healing art form was developed by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, a renowned yogi and doctor who treated Buddha among many others in India. After Buddha’s death, the technique migrated to Southeast Asia through the knowledge of Buddhist monks and Ayurvedic doctors and eventually evolved into what is known as Thai yoga massage.
Theory of Thai Massage Albuquerque
The ancient healing technique of Thai massage works on the theory that a subtle flow of energy affects all daily activities. This belief is centrally focused on the concept that tightened muscles result in a decreased flow of energy throughout the body. During the practice of Thai yoga massage, the practitioner gently stretches and manipulates the muscles allowing the body to open up and feel lighter as the energy flows freely. Through this therapeutic bodywork, clients enjoy the experience of muscles unbundling as a continuous steady stream of movements corrects blockages and reestablishes a balanced flow of energy.
What to Expect from Thai Massage Albuquerque?
Thai massage therapy sessions differ from traditional massage in that yoga poses are an integral part of this Eastern technique. It is traditionally performed on the floor in which the practitioner guides the client through a series of assisted yoga postures. Through a sequence of flowing movements, the client feels their muscles loosen as pressure is applied to the energy lines in the body. While the client is guided through low impact rhythmic movements coordinated with deep breathing, the experience is akin to a rhythmic dance in which the body is in a mindful fluid motion. As the joints and muscles begin to open and release tension, the spine begins to lengthen while the practitioner employs stretching and gentle pulling techniques that induce a sense of calm similar to a deep meditative state that both relaxes and invigorates the entire body.
