Thai massage is just one example of the many complimentary therapies available today. And it's great that such treatments are now being recognised by health funds.
Depending which health fund you are with, it's likely there is an allowance to cover treatments such as massage and reflexology, so there's really no excuse for giving them a try.
Thai massage is great for those who have perhaps felt uncomfortable about this type of treatment. There's no need to undress and the massage is done without the use of oils.
So what should you expect during, and from, a Thai massage session? Some aspects of Thai massage are similar to the more traditional massage, in that the practitioner will work on troublesome areas and muscles. However, the practice is also designed to stretch your muscles.
Your massage therapist will move your body into certain yoga poses, to enhance movement and improve flexibility.
Hands, elbows, even knees are used to work on your body, leaving you both relaxed and revitalised.
Using your body's energy lines and pressure points, a Thai massage is unbeatable for boosting your circulation. This is done by blocking and releasing blood flow. And don't worry, that's perfectly safe.
After your Thai massage in Perth, you will probably feel as if you're floating on air. It's as if all the stress has been removed, and replaced with feelings of peace and wellbeing.
