What happens during a Thai massage?
This massage involves placing warmed stones on selected areas of the body such as the acupressure points. The stones can be placed on the body temporarily or used as massage tools. Hot stones can be used together with other massage techniques to soothe and relax the body by transferring heat deep inside.
Deep tissue massage can be used to address certain trouble spots in your body. The massage therapist applies slow, deliberate pressure to the layers of muscles, tissues, or tendons deep beneath your skin. Deep tissue massage can be more therapeutic than other types of massage. It can relieve chronic patterns of tension, and help with injuries like back sprains.
Discuss the pros and cons of massage with your doctor, especially if you are pregnant or if you have cancer or unexplained pain.
