Thai Massage Therapy is a common massage treatment most people go for when they want to improve their energy levels, flexibility, circulation plus it’s also an effective remedy for back pains as well. What some may not know is that there are different types of Thai Massage treatments and each have their own benefits. In this article, we will be discussing what these types of treatments are and what they can do for your body.
Traditional Thai Massage
The Massage process takes place on a padded mat that is laid on the floor or on a massage table. The practitioner will use stretching, pulling, bending and rocking techniques to relieve tension, promote relaxation and improve flexibility and circulation. In just 1.5-2 hours of the session, blood circulation is activated and the nervous system is strengthened. Note that if at any point of the massage process you feel painful sensations, tell your practitioner immediately. Additionally, in the case where you have a health problem or had surgery ensure you consult with your doctor first before booking for this session.
Thai Oil Massage
A Thai Oil Massage is a smooth type of Thai Massage that uses oil during the treatment. It uses gentle to firm pressure and stretching techniques to relax the body helping you destress and loosen up. This massage treatment is much more relaxing than the Traditional Thai Massage so if feeling relaxed is your goal after a massage session, then this should be your go to. It is also great if you have had a long week and need some pampering. You can choose the fragrance of the oils from the offered assortments which may include coconut oil, jasmine, lavender, papaya or lemon grass essential oil.
Due to these aromatherapy oils, this massage improves blood circulation, softens the skin and calms the mind. At Leela Thai Massage and Spa, we offer a Whole Body Thai Massage Oil treatment which will help alleviate any chronic pains that you may be experiencing.
Thai Pinda Massage
A Pinda Massage uses the medicinal properties of plants to induce physical and spiritual harmony, increasing resistance to diseases by removing toxins from the body. Pindas are made up of a natural preparation of aromatic and medicinal herbs that are warped in a bag shaped cloth and mixed with essential oils and heated with steam.
The Thai Pinda Massage is a combination of Traditional Thai Massage and Pinda Massage. It helps with the balance of the body,mind and soul through relaxing massage movement combined with the therapeutic power of herbal medicine and aromatherapy. It also helps with efficiency in blood and lymphatic circulation and metabolism favoring the functioning of the body and relieving muscle tension.
Thai Deep Tissue Massage
Thai Deep Tissue Massage is a treatment that focuses on areas of the body that are holding muscle stress or pain. The massage aims to relieve tension in the deepest layers of your muscle and connective tissues therefore, the kneading technique is much more intense. Though just because the pressure is intense, it doesn’t mean it has to be painful to be effective. If you are experiencing any pain, make sure you tell the practitioner. This treatment is a good option if you have chronic muscle problems such as soreness or an injury.

The aim of a deep tissue massage is to break down stagnant scar tissue, relieving muscle knots and promote blood circulation which result in easing the pain.
Thai Shoulders Massage
Our shoulders tend to go through a lot of motion in our daily activities hence why they are prone to experience some soreness or pain here and there. If you tend to experience frequent shoulder pains, a traditional shoulder massage using Thai techniques would be a necessary beneficial treatment. The massage will help reduce tension in your muscles, improve circulation and reduce stress.
