Traditional Thai massage is more precise and energizing than other forms of traditional massage. Traditional Thai massage provides benefit by stimulating pressure points on to open the body’s energy pathways, allowing healing energy to allowing healing energy to flow freely and allowing the body to heal itself.

Traditional Thai massage helps a person’s muscles, joints, ligaments and fascia by relaxing muscle tension, relieving the spasm, and improving the range of motion. The combination of pressure on specific points and yoga like stretches in traditional Thai massage relieves areas of muscular stress and tension. In fact, recipients often report that their muscles stay loose days after a session.

Today, Thai massage is one of the branches of Thai traditional medicine now recognized and regulated by the government, and is widely considered to be a medical discipline used for the treatment of a wide variety of ailments. On the other hand, Thai massage is also practiced and taught by a number of non-medical massage technicians in the spa and tourism industries.
