Кой масаж е подходящ за мен – как да избера - THAI SPA

Which massage is right for me - how to choose

The goals of different types of massage are basically two: therapeutic and relaxing. However, it is good to choose a massage according to the problem you have. Therefore, we recommend that you first consult a specialist and then decide what exactly you want. We suggest that you familiarize yourself with some of the most modern and effective massages at the moment.

Swedish massage . It is characterized by moderate pressure, sliding, kneading, rubbing and stretching. Over time, specialists have proven that Swedish massage has a therapeutic effect and helps with depression, immune problems and diabetes. It also relieves back and shoulder pain. It is recommended for people who suffer from chronic muscle tension and excessive mental strain. If it's your first time getting a massage, it's actually not a bad idea to start with this one.

Deep massage . Ask your massage therapist carefully before requesting this particular massage. According to some people it is quite painful, according to others not so much, but in general it is extremely effective for muscle injuries.

Shiatsu massage is similar to the group of traditional Thai massages. It uses a special system of points located along the energy meridians in the body to restore its energy balance.

Classic Thai massages help you achieve unity between body, spirit and mind. They relieve muscle and joint pain and are recommended for depression, excessive mental or physical strain. They have a relaxing and toning effect.

Craniosacral massage. It, like the classic massages from Thailand, combines Ayurvedic techniques and knowledge with ancient folk medicine. Craniosacral massage helps you balance your body and mind. With its help, back pain can be reduced.

Lomi Lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage. It is slightly more invasive than traditional Thai massages, although it is sometimes called a "Loving Hands" massage. It includes long, smooth and rhythmic strokes. With its help, you release muscle tension.

Reflexology. In this massage, certain points on the feet and palms are pressed, which correspond to the various internal organs. It stimulates energy flow and improves the work of the nervous system. You can easily learn and practice it at home. Specialists often recommend it for serious health problems, as part of a supportive conventional treatment program.

Nothing prevents you from trying different massages until you find the right one for you. The only problem is that you need to go regularly to feel the real effect. Therefore, we still recommend you consult a specialist. And, if you don't have a serious health problem, it might be good to go for some of the traditional Thai massages, Lomi Lomi or Shiatsu. They will tone you up and help you control everyday stress.
