Why Traditional Thai massage therapist is one of the best job of the future with more demand?
Jobless? Time for a career change? Become now with us a massage therapist, the
most demanded job of the future! Why? It is scientifically proven that due to
daily use of technology, internet and smart phones, we move less. Therefore
we are more prone to ailments. Neck pain, back pain and fatigue are some
of the health problems caused using computers, tablets or smart phones.
The more we use technology, the less we move and the more ailments we have,
therefore the more demand of massage therapists, to treat but also to prevent
these ailments. Did you know that physical inactivity is the fourth leading cause of
death globally? The World Health Organization (WHO) states that inactivity is
causing an estimated 3.2 million deaths globally.
Sitting will kill you
Our body is made to move. The early human beings were fit and constantly moving
being physically active to survive, to collect food, to shelter, to escape from danger.
Nowadays, many years later our body is almost the same as that of the early
human being, but our lifestyle changed a lot: We are much more physically
inactive. Some less than others, but due to internet we sit too much which can be
harmful for our health. We shop online, instead of going walking around searching
on the streets the goods we need. We use a (smart)phone to connect to our
friends and family instead of walking by just to see if someone is around. Most of
us know that typing too much can cause repetitive strain injury, looking down at a
screen of any device causes pain in the neck and sitting too long causes too much
pressure on the spine. These ailments might not sound too serious, but if you don’t
change your behavior it can causes long term damage. Even worse, sitting can kill
you in the end. Inactivity causes: Weakening of the heart and lungs, damage of
our immune system (the lymphatic system cannot move the waste), lack of
calcium of the bones, weakening of muscles and stiffness of the joints etc. The
World Health Organization (WHO) states in one of their recently studies that
moderate intensity physical activity – such as walking, cycling, or participating in
sports – has significant benefits for health. For instance, it can reduce the risk of
cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, colon and breast cancer, and depression.
Moreover adequate levels of physical activity will decrease the risk of a hip or
vertebral fracture and help control weight.
Massage is demanded
To improve our health, scientist nowadays look at ancient techniques rather than
modern technology. Like this year’s Nobel Prize Winner Youyou who studied a cure
of malaria monks used about 2500 years ago. We could also look to ancient
techniques to balance the lack of movement in our modern society, like using the
2500 year old technique of Traditional Thai Therapy Massage. This therapy
massage based on moving the whole body is different than other massages,
because both masseur and client are constantly moving. Nowadays Traditional Thai
Therapy Massage based in manipulation of the joints, acupressure along the
muscles, stretching the muscles, is becoming more well known as a treatment in
regular western medicine. But in Thailand it is already used for centuries in
hospitals to decrease the waiting lists and people incorporated this type of
massage in their daily life with enormous health results. Sociologists predict that
use of smart phones and other internet devices will increase and therefore
massage therapists will be more and more demanded in the future!
