The effect of Thai bodywork
The effect is deeply relaxing but energizing. Receiving Thai bodywork is the ultimate lazy and simple way of obtaining all the benefits of yoga and more - without having to do it yourself. Stiffness and loss of flexibility comes with aging. Thai bodywork is unique in its ability to preserve youthfulness.
Thai bodywork enables to press muscles and to balance energy levels. This is what affects flexibility and equalizes the effects of muscles on both sides of the body. The amount of movement a muscle can produce at a joint is determined by the difference between its length when relaxed and when fully contracted. When muscles are tense, they become shorter, even when you are not consciously contracting them. This can happen through overworking them, by not using them enough or it could be due to emotional tension. Whatever the cause may be, the end result is progressively more restricted movement and the stiffness, aches and pains which are all characteristic of the ageing process.
Muscles that shorten and become tense can create uneven forces on the spine - that all-important container of the spinal cord. This, in turn, creates the back pain, neck pain and headaches that can so easily become a regular feature of daily life. With its unique ability to stretch all the most important muscles in the body systematically, Thai manipulations enable you to achieve effects which are unlike those of any other bodywork.
Thai bodywork should not be regarded as a mere physical experience. The giving and receiving of Thai bodywork is powerful interchange of intrinsic energy between two individuals. It is always a two-way process, and achievement depends on the caring and compassionate way in which it is given. Even in this day and age, Thai bodywork is a vital necessity for everyday life because it underpins health and well-being. It is the perfect vehicle for two people to come together to share the flow of energy and life-force. Thai bodywork embodies all the harmony and rhythm often lacking in our lives.
This massage is very perspective not only in all the Europe but also in Latvia, because there are only a few Thai massage specialists who have studied abroad, so this massage is also expensive so far. Furthermore it is close to physiotherapy, and there are a lot of therapists who could specialize in this massage.
