One of the most powerful ways to give you love is by receiving a massage. Who can resist? Personally, I am a massage fan, but I also enjoy giving love to others.
My first encounter with massage therapy was in 2014, where I participated in a Therapeutic Massage Advanced Technique workshop with Dr. Eden Goldman, Director of the Yoga and the Healing Sciences Teacher Training Program at Loyola Marymount University. It’s amazing to discover the capabilities of the body beyond the mental barriers of fear, and range of movement. Yes! Our bodies can always do more than we believe.
Dolce Far Niente! So, even if you are a home momma or a super busy corporate executive, we all need time to just do nothing and rest. Take me for example, during my dolce far niente time I received a Thai Massage and felt in love with the experience, its healing techniques and profound principles.
Establishing Health and Wellness
Thai Massage or Thai Yoga Massage is a millenary technique created from Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine knowledge that treats the body as a whole: mind, body and soul. It integrates techniques and qualities from different oriental disciplines: acupressure, reflexology, physiotherapy, meditation, energy healing and Yoga. It’s based upon the principles of loving kindness, compassion, pure joy unadulterated by self-interest and equanimity.
- Relieve of stress, physical and mental tension.
- Improve blood circulation and decreases blood pressure.
- Increases energy flow and flexibility.
- Endorphins release
- Illness prevention
Its effectiveness is proven not only at the physical level but also at the energetically level.
The receiver remains clothed during the treatment and no oils or lotions are used. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.
Where you can get it?
Give yourself the gift of kindness and compassion by working on your energy lines in a conscious effort through presence. In Panama, Caroles Body Therapist, Casa Thai Massage and Centro de Terapias Orientales are great options for exploring with Thai Massage.
