Life Balance Thai Yoga Massage Classes are based on scientific proof that everyone’s health can be improved by receiving at least weekly acupressure along the skeleton muscles and stretches. This class is especially for everyone who likes to enjoy the benefits of traditional Thai massage, but without paying the full amount of a massage treatment, which is for many people too expensive. By following the teacher’s instruction students will improve their blood circulation and therefore their immune system, preventing illnesses. Moreover by acupressure and stretches along the skeleton muscles your muscles that are affected by injuries or hard exercise will recover faster and your muscle tone will become stronger and prevent you from injuries. During class, you will receive the traditional therapy for health massage treatment for 45 minutes and give the treatment as well, depending on your medical situation.
Most muscle pain and lack of mobility of the joints is the result of muscles shortening under the influence of repetitive strain. The pressing techniques of Thai massage in these Traditional Thai Yoga Massage Classes for Health prepare muscles for stretching. The manipulations are designed to stretch the muscles a little more than would be possible unaided. Even advanced yoga cannot compete with the stretching capabilities of this form of massage. Tension and spasm in a muscle are the results of a vicious circle of events involving the muscle and its sense organs. The more tense the muscle the shorter it gets, and the brain interprets this as contraction, inhibiting the function of the muscles, which weaken as a result. Regular Thai massage stretches the muscles back to their normal resting length, which deceives the brain into ‘thinking’ that all is well and it stops inhibiting the antagonists. Therefore tension disappears and joint mobility is restored. Muscles are the masseur’s ultimate target but fibrotic connective tissue and weak circulation are also treated during the massage.
