Stretching is an important part of overall health. Since most clients who receive massage therapy understand the importance of working on soft tissue (muscle and fascia) to keep our bodies functional at optimum levels, adding stretching protocols are a natural extension of that self-care program.
Stretching tends to feel good because it activates your parasympathetic nervous system and increases blood flow to your muscles. It’s thought that stretching may also release endorphins that help to reduce pain and enhance your mood.
In Thai massage, the therapist uses her body to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. She also utilizes muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure techniques, as well as energy work to balance your body.
