Thai Yoga Massage
A science and art, a combination of acupressure and yoga-like stretching, Thai massage is a medical discipline and part of a four-year traditional medical degree program, where you work the energy, instead of being just bodywork.
This bodywork therapy has a calming effect on the brain due to pressing and releasing on the soft tissue - which is covered with nerve endings, sending all those impulses to the brain and back to the muscles and organs promoting relaxation and homeostasis.
Scientific research has demonstrated its benefits. Thai [Yoga] Massage "can prevent bones degeneration, decease stress, treat back pain, and contribute to psychological well-being" (1) Also has the "ability to improve circulation, flexibility, and muscle tone".... and is "specially advocated for those who find themselves stiff, sore, and tired from overexertion in work or sports, or from arthritis or other disorders affecting mobility".
