More and more tourists are returning from Thailand with lasting impressions of a massage that is more like yoga. Performed through your clothes, Thai Traditional Massage leaves you in a state of sublime relaxation.
Its mechanics show a strong Indian Ayurvedic and yogic influence, but a very disciplined emphasis on energy channels demonstrates a link with Chinese Traditional Medicine.
Thai massage is said to be highly beneficial. Thais regard balance and unimpeded flow of Sen as vital for good health. A good Thai massage achieves this and can correct emotional problems as well as physical ones. Other benefits of regular Thai massage include relief from constipation, IBS, headaches, sciatica, back and neck pain.
So much of feeling 'old' comes from what is often regarded as the inevitable stiffening of joints with advancing years. Regular Thai massage quickly proves that this is not so as it restores long lost mobility to the joints.
Massage Treatments Available at Doi Nok Strawberry Resort
You can book your massage treatments with us (we do recommend that they booked in advance to avoid disappointment) . The masseur will perform the massage in the comfort of your own air-conditioned lodge. You will lie on a mat on the floor, fully clothed except for shoes and socks. The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, feet knees and even shins to press and stretch your body.
The pressing techniques of Thai massage prepare muscles for stretching by increasing their permeability to the flow of Sen energies. The following manipulations are designed to stretch the muscles a little more than would be possible unaided. This will be subtle at first but gradually progresses to the elegant, large scale stretches for which Thai massage is renowned. Every muscle and joint is treated.
Thais have long since recognised that most musculo-skeletal pain and the lack of mobility of the joints is the result of muscles shortening under the influence of repetitive strain.
Muscles are the masseur's ultimate target but fibrotic connective tissue and weak circulation are also treated during the massage.
At the end of the massage you will feel relaxed, refreshed and much more flexible!
