Unlike a Swedish massage, the movement of a traditional Thai massage helps boost circulation of blood to your body's extremities. With increased circulation, more oxygen will be brought to the brain. This will lower the number of migraines and headaches from which the individual suffers.
A person with poor circulation can suffer from a variety of discomforts including the pooling of fluid in the extremities, cold hands and feet, fatigue and achiness created by an accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles. Good circulation brings damaged, tense muscles the oxygen-rich blood they need to heal.
Massage facilitates circulation because the pressure created by the massage technique actually moves blood through the congested areas. The release of this same pressure causes new blood to flow in. The squeezing and pulling also flushes lactic acid from the muscles and improves the circulation of the lymph fluid which carries metabolic waste away from muscles and internal organs.
Increased circulation will lower the chances of blood clotting in the arteries. Thai massage will rejuvenate and refresh you. It will help you think clearer because you will feel better after it.
