5 Benefits of Thai Massage for Physical Therapy

Introduction

Thai massage is a traditional remedial massage system with roots in Thailand. It’s a holistic approach to massage that focuses on the body’s natural energy lines, Prana Nadi or Thai Sen Lines, to promote health, healing, recovery, and relaxation. Thai massage involves gentle stretches, acupressure, and rocking to help relax the body and mind.

Recently, Thai massage has gained popularity as a form of physical remedy, with people seeking its numerous benefits for the body and mind. Its holistic approach to healing and relaxation makes it a unique and effective remedial therapy for many physical and internal health conditions. Whether you’re looking to relieve muscle injury, or spasm, reduce or correct inflexibility, or relax and decompress, Thai massage may help.

So why is Thai massage getting increasingly popular as a form of remedial physical and or occupational therapy? One reason may be its ability to address various physical and internal health issues, conditions, and syndromes. Whether dealing with chronic and habitual pain and stress or simply looking to improve your overall health, Thai massage has the structured protocols and techniques to offer significant benefits. In the following sections, we will further explore some of the main advantages of Thai massage for physical therapy.

  1. Improved flexibility and range of motion:

One of the main benefits of Thai massage is its capability to reduce or improve inflexibility and range of motion. Thai Massage achieves this result through gentle Yoga Therapy postures, “stretches” that help to loosen and stretch tight muscles. Improved flexibility can have a range of benefits for overall physical health and healthy- being, including:

Reduced risk of injury: Stretching helps to increase the range of stir in your joints, which can help to reduce the risk factors of injury during everyday life and physical conditioning. It is crucial for people who engage in regular physical exertion, athletics, or sports, as increased flexibility can help to reduce muscle strains, sprains, and other injuries.

Improved posture: Tight muscles can contribute to poor posture, leading to back pain and other issues. By stretching and loosening these muscles, Thai massage can help to improve structure and posture while reducing the threat of associated problems.

Enhanced athletic performance: Improved flexibility can also help to support superior performance. By increasing the accessible range of motion in your joints, you may be able to move more efficiently and effectively, leading to better results in your chosen sport or physical activity.

In addition to these benefits, increased flexibility can make you feel better overall. Stretching can help to release antagonistic tension and spasm, increasing blood inflow to your muscles and leaving you feeling more relaxed and re-energized. If you are looking to improve your flexibility and range of motion, Thai massage is a great option to consider.

2. Reduces muscle tension and chronic pain:

Another crucial benefit of Thai massage is its capability to reduce muscle tension, spasm, and chronic pain. Physical Therapy benefits of Thai Massage originate through varietal and functional traditional Thai massage techniques that help to loosen tight muscles and promote relaxation.

One possible explanation for the pain-relieving results of Thai massage is the increased blood flow it can promote. Thai Massage can help to increase blood flow to the muscles, bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the area and helping to flush out waste products such as lactic acid. This increased blood flow can help to reduce muscle spasms and promote mending and healing. This high blood flow can also help to mitigate site-specific and overall inflammation.

Thai massage may also be effective in reducing pain due to the release of endorphins, natural painkillers produced by the body. These endorphins can help reduce pain perception, furnishing significant- required relief for those suffering from chronic pain conditions. Overall, Thai massage can effectively reduce muscle spasms (sympatheticotonia, antagonistic muscle tension) and chronic pain, helping to alleviate limitations of the range of motion and promote overall well-being. If you are dealing with muscle tension or chronic pain, try Thai massage to see if it can offer you some relief.

3. Reduces muscle tension and chronic pain: Thai massage protocols and techniques can reduce muscle spasms and chronic pain. Applying these interesting Traditional Thai Medicine techniques (Thai Marma Chikitsa) can help relieve muscle spasms by improving blood flow and releasing endorphins, which are natural anodynes or natural painkillers produced by the body. Traditional Thai Massage, also known as “Thai Yoga Therapy,” can give significant- immediate, and long-lasting relief to those suffering from chronic-habitual pain. One possible explanation for the pain-relieving effects of Thai massage is the increased blood flow it promotes. Massage can help to increase blood flow to the muscles, bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the area and helping to flush out waste products. This increased blood flow can help to reduce muscle tension and promote healing.

The release of endorphins is another possible mechanism behind the pain-relieving effects of Thai massage. Endorphins are natural anodynes produced by the body, and their presence can help reduce pain perception. This fantastic healing therapy can relieve those dealing with chronic pain conditions. Overall, Thai massage can effectively reduce muscle spasms and chronic pain, helping to ease inflexibility and range of stir and promote overall well-being. Once again, If you are dealing with muscle tension or chronic pain, try Thai massage to see if it can offer you some relief.

4. Boosts immune system function:

Research has shown that Thai massage can positively affect the immune system, helping boost its function. A robust immune system is essential for maintaining overall health and well-being.

There are many possible explanations for the immune-boosting effects of Thai massage. One is the increased blood flow that the massage can promote. As mentioned before, massage can help to increase blood flow to the muscles, bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the area and helping to flush out waste products. This increased blood flow may also positively impact the immune system, helping to support its function. Traditional Thai Massage works or treats the entire client’s body. That means the increased blood flow benefit affects the whole body, a systemic gift with all the additional benefits you would expect from a purely local increase of blood flow to a particular part of the body, such as any extremity.

Another possible explanation for the immune-boosting effects of Thai massage is the relaxation of the body’s stress response. Stress can hurt the immune system, so anything that helps to reduce stress may also help to boost immune function. Thai massage can be particularly effective at promoting relaxation and reducing stress, making it an excellent choice for those looking to support their immune system. Overall, Thai massage has the potential to boost immune system function, helping to support overall health and well-being.

5. Promotes relaxation and stress reduction:

In addition to its physical benefits, Thai massage is also known for its capability to promote relaxation and reduce stress. This stress reduction effect begins immediately and can continue or last for days after even one therapy session! The gentle stretches and acupressure (Marma Chikitsa) techniques used in the treatment protocols and individual sessions can help relax the mind and body, providing a sense of calm and well-being. Reducing stress can have a range of benefits for overall physical and internal health. Stress can hurt the body, causing a range of problems similar to fatigue, headaches, and muscle spasm. By reducing stress, Thai massage can help to palliate these symptoms and promote overall health and well-being. In addition to the immediate relaxation and stress-reducing direct effects of Thai massage, the protocol may also have longer-term benefits. By helping to reduce stress, Thai massage can improve sleep quality, boost mood, and lower the threat and risk of specific health problems. Thai Massage directly affects positive posture and structural alignment. Misalignments in the body’s structure can cause or contribute to stress. In severe cases, structural misalignments and deviations can directly affect the circulation of any bodily circulations, including innervation, blood flow to organs or extremities, lymphatic drainage, etc. Overall, Thai massage can be an effective way to promote relaxation and reduce stress, providing and facilitating both immediate and more extended-term benefits for overall physical and internal health.

Conclusion:

Thai massage offers a range of physical remedy benefits, including reductions of inflexibility and inhibiting free accessible range of motion. It reduces muscle spasms and chronic pain, boosts immune system function, and stimulates relaxation and stress reduction. These benefits make Thai massage popular for those seeking a holistic approach to physical therapy and improving overall well-being.

Consider seeking out a trained and certified Thai Massage/ Thai Yoga therapist in your area. Thai massage is considered one of the most effective traditional medicine-based alternatives to conventional western/ allopathic physical therapy. It is also a great addition and adjunct to any physical therapy treatment program. Many PTs, Physical Therapy Doctors, Occupational therapists, and orthopedic professionals, including nurses and allied medical professionals, are currently studying to gain knowledge and applications of Thai massage techniques and protocols. When practiced by a trained and expert therapist/ practitioner, Thai Massage is safe and the poster child for functional medicine for various illnesses, conditions, and syndromes from mild to severe and chronic to acute. Again, finding a qualified therapist or practitioner who can tailor the Thai massage to your individual needs and preferences is essential. With the right therapist, you can experience firsthand Thai massage’s many physical therapy benefits.

How to fix Weak Posterior Chain issues with SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy

YaNaKa & Push The Foot

How to fix Weak Posterior Chain issues with SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy

by Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James

Your SomaVeda® Thai Yoga client still has hamstring, hip and or low back pain after sessions or SomaVeda® Therapeutic Day program!

A review and commentary by Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James: Dean of the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine

The reason may be a Weak Posterior Chain!

What is Weak Posterior Chain?

A weak Posterior chain is the structure and function of the posterior thighs (hamstrings), Gluts and Sacral/ Low Back. They are under developed, injured, weak and as a result uncoordinated and worse subject to atrophy from lack of use. When I say lack of use, I mean it in every way. Too much sitting, not enough range of motion and insufficient load bearing exercise to build and maintain healthy muscle and soft tissue including connective tissue… Ligaments and tendons etc. This region may be ischemic and low in circulating oxygen which may affect the structure and function of the nerves and soft tissue creating an inclination to spasm and further reducing accessible range of motion. Hard to do Yoga when the muscles and tissues themselves are working hard even at rest to do the opposite!

 

Why? Client Compliance and lack of proper, effective at home self care!

What does this mean and how to improve on long term issues either with or after a SomaVeda® Thai Yoga program? Rome was not built in a day! As beneficial as a full seven day+ SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Day Protocol or program is, it is NOT Magic! Many chronic pain issues develop over many years and are further complicated with both traumatic history of accidents and injuries, accumulated over time. Complicated with malnutrition and toxicities, years of inactivity and resulting atrophy, energy imbalances and more. We do eventually want to address all of these as they impact the specific clients pain and well being moving them towards recovery. However, today I want to bring attention to what the clients can and does have to do on their own behalf! The SomaVeda® Thai Yoga technique I am focusing on today is the SOmaVedar Thai Yoga “YaNaKa” or “Push The Leg”. YaNaKa is the essential Thai Yoga technique, representing a three joint traction and decompression technique. YaNaKa emphasizes the posterial leg lines or Thai Sen lines above the knee to the PSIS pelvis. The three joint’s affected are the ankle, knee and pelvis. This one of the very few techniques in any physical therapy system that can traction and decompress the knee… very important and helpful if there is inflammation , extra fluid or swelling in the knee.

Watch the 159 Different YaNaKa & Push The Leg video to see the “Hands-On” Chirothesia corrections we have in our SomaVeda® kit.

We can do amazing work. The issue always comes back to what is the patient/ client doing between sessions at home? How can the client/ patient comply with their recovery process addressing some of the true causes for their “Weak Posterior Chain” issues?

What the client themselves does in support of their own progress towards either reduced pain, pain free living and or free and easy range of motion is vital. Even after a full program and any where from 9 to 12 contact hours hands on… this pales in comparison to the twenty four/ seven lifestyle of the client for ether good or ill.

All pain clients have a “Kapha Dosha” imbalance! No matter what their diagnosis, “Vikruti” or elemental imbalance or body type. How? Why? One of the key indicators of a “Kapha Dosha” imbalance is IGNORANCE. Ignorance of how the client themselves created the origin of the pain, the injury, the atrophy, the chronic inflammation, the poor medical or therapeutic choices which may not only not helped but made the pain worse. This includes relegating responsibility for their healing and wellness to institutional and or corporate medico’s who simply proscribed various drugs, steroids, opiates etc. for “pain management”, but which in the long term did not prove helpful.

Yes, the clients need help, need therapeutic program and intervention. However, they also need guidance in self maintenance and home practices which will educate them in support of their personal compliance routines… Where the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Program ends , the clients self work and compliance with the therapist counseling and recommendations begins!

The SomaVeda® T.A.E.L.R. (SomaVeda® Tool Assisted Energy Line Release) protocol extends the hands on Chirothesia or manual therapeutic hands on healing ministry with the use of adjuncts therapies and “tools”. One of the most important tools is to educate the client into what they can control, contribute and effectively do at home for themselves as the partner in the therapy.

Consider: Weak Posterior Chain?

More than these? Consider:

  • Lack of Isometric Strength
  • Walking with discomfort
  • Hips locking up
  • Bad posture leading to injury
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Sluggishness in day to day life
  • Rounded Shoulder
  • Tight Hips
  • Compromised Immune System
  • “Anerobic Lactic Threshold” and why it’s important.
  • Loss of sexual performance
  • Lack of Explosiveness in Yoga practice, the gym, sports and or Martial Arts

It’s not enough to know the clients needs to do their “home work” and self care, they need proper and sustained, detailed guidance on what to do and how to do it.

Your not going to be with them at home, so we need a home study program that targets the issue. You the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Certified Practitioner, Therapist, Minister or Physician do your amazing part. Refer your client (also yourself if your the one with the chronic pain!) to “Ground Control Program” for an amazing program.

Please take a moment to read this important sponsored message from “Ground Control” Program. 

Have you heard about Weak Posterior Chain?

Your Posterior Chain…

…stabilize your trunk and spine during movement and sitting

…allow you to bend your hips and legs towards your chest

…support your internal organs

…is connected to your diaphragm which allows you to walk and breathe.

In other words, your posterior chain has a direct influence on your fight or flight response!

Here I am at age 17, dressed out in my Gi, competing as a Black Belt in the Seishin Kai Jiu-Jitsu Competitions!

The solution? Train Like a Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt!

Most of you know that I hold Black Belt Rank is Martial Arts as well as equivilent in MA that do not use the belt system such as Thai Muay Boran and Krabri Krabong. Click Here to see my Martial Arts Bio… I also hold Black Belt Rank in Go Budo Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu training is related to that of Judo but with a much wider variety of techniques and training methodalities. In fact, in my opinion Jiu-Jitsu training has the answer, the perfected solution to the “Weak Posterior Chain”. I have found an amazing 12 weak HOME STUDY/ HOME Practice Course which is helping thousands of athletes right now over come these physical limitations. Do not be intimidated by my reference to “Athletes”. Trust me when I say What Works for Athletes Will Work For You!

Take the challenge to restore the structure and function for your self or refer your clients using the link included below. If you need this link in an email, simply let me know and I can forward to you separately! Cheers, Aajahn Dr. James.

If the posterior chain get tight and weak, it can be a real pain but working certain muscles and doing the certain exercise combinations provide easy fixes. CLICK HERE! for the “At-Home” Compliance and personal self help program.

So… If you experience…

low back pain

hip pain

stiffness

pain while walking or moving

lack or loss of range of motion in your Posterior Chain (Hamstrings, Gluts, Sacral/ Low Back area)

shortness of breath

You need to start undoing some of the damage done to your body and start helping the body to naturally heal itself.

 

Here are the best “At Home” strategies to Go from “Tight” to “Mobile, Strong & Supple”.

LearnThaiYoga Announces Up Dates OnLine Learning Platform January 2022!

LearnThaiYoga On-Line
Traditional Thai Yoga Therapy also known as Thai Traditional Massage is the fastest growing and most sought after healing modality in the world today. Of course, the best way to learn is in a live class with a Master Teacher or Thai “Aachan” such as at the Thai Yoga Center in Brooksville, Florida studying with Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James and or his trained and certified SomaVeda® Thai Yoga staff Khruu or Teachers.

You Asked for it! THAI YOGA ONLINE Learning Platform!

However, if you can’t make it to a live SomaVeda® Thai Yoga class either because of scheduling or cost the next best thing is to learn from the Master Teacher at Home!
Now you can Learn SomaVeda® Thai Yoga at Home!
Don’t waste your time on lessons from untrained and un-certified and or non-authentic teachers?
Come to a genuine source for your continuing education!
Hi everyone and good day!
I am continuing my current project of bringing you new and useful information and content to empower you to Jump Start Your Healing Practice.  This content is designed to supplement and add to your existing SomaVeda® Thai Yoga practice.

It is good that our traditions have deep and ancient roots with elders and teachers who have lived the life of healers, traditional doctors and therapist for centuries, literally. They are our role models. We do not have to reinvent the wheel of success in what we do by ourselves. Only our current life situations and perhaps cultural considerations are unique. But what we are doing in life is not new or unique. We can learn from our elders and these lessons and qualities I am recommending you cultivate don’t originate with me personally but they are passed down to us by previous generations of healers who chose to practice true medicine as a way of life for their whole life!

SomaVeda® Thai Yoga T.A.E.L.R. Practice Adjunct: Your clients hip and low back is aching because…

SomaVeda® Thai Yoga for Hip Flexor

Your SomaVeda® Thai Yoga client still has hip and or low back pain after sessions or SomaVeda® Therapeutic Day program!

A review and commentary by Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James: Dean of the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine

 

pelvic tensegrity

The reason may be Pelvic Tensegrity Instability.

What is Pelvic Tensegrity?

“In 1992 and again in 1995 World Congress an Low Back and Pelvic Pain the focus seemed to be the sacroiliac joint, its mechanics and its role in generating pain. There are several references to joint injection as the `gold Standard’ for diagnosis and for treatment. This need to stress joint pathology is rooted in the Newtonian concepts that the skeleton and its joints are the frame upon which the soft tissue hang, and the concept that pathology is a function of anatomical disease or injury.
On the other hand, tensegrity stresses that the bones of the skeleton are but compression elements `floating’ in a highly structures, self generating, hierarchical, integrated tension network of soft tissues.’3.” The ligaments, muscles and fascia take an a whole new importance and joint mechanics becomes soft tissue mechanics. This is consistent with the clinical observations of Mennell,’3 who stressed the play movement of joints as a necessary dynamic function and Trave11` who focused an the imbalance of tension of the muscles and fascia as a source
of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. These works echoed the pioneering precepts of A.T. Still, Palmen and others who focused an the dynamic aspects of the musculoskeletal System rather than the anatomical pathology of the structures.” (https://www.researchgate.net/publication/319016548_THE_TENSEGRITY_SYSTEM_AND_PELVIC_PAIN_SYNDROME)

Why? Client Compliance and lack of proper, effective at home self care!

What does this mean and how to improve on long term issues either with or after a SomaVeda® Thai Yoga program? Rome was not built in a day! As beneficial as a full seven day+ SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Day Protocol or program is, it is NOT Magic! Many chronic pain issues develop over many years and are further complicated with both traumatic history of accidents and injuries, accumulated over time. Complicated with malnutrition and toxicities, years of inactivity and resulting atrophy, energy imbalances and more. We do eventually want to address all of these as they impact the specific clients pain and well being moving them towards recovery. However, today I want to bring attention to what the clients can and does have to do on their own behalf!

Click Here for video of SomaVeda® Pelvic Tensegrity Imbalance corrective techniques!

What the client themselves does in support of their own progress towards either reduced pain or pain free living is vital. Even after a full program and any where from 9 to 12 contact hours hands on… this pales in comparison to the twenty four/ seven lifestyle of the client for ether good or ill.

All pain clients have a “Kapha Dosha” imbalance! No matter what their diagnosis, “Vikruti” or elemental imbalance or body type. How? Why? One of the key indicators of a “Kapha Dosha” imbalance is IGNORANCE.  Ignorance of how the client themselves created the origin of the pain, the injury, the atrophy, the chronic inflammation, the poor medical or therapeutic choices which may not only not helped but made the pain worse. This includes relegating responsibility for their healing and wellness to institutional and or corporate medico’s who simply proscribed various drugs, steroids, opiates etc. for “pain management”, but which in the long term did not prove helpful.

Yes, the clients need help, need therapeutic program and intervention. However, they also need guidance in self maintenance and home practices which will educate them in support of their personal compliance routines… Where the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Program ends , the clients self work and compliance with the therapist counseling and recommendations begins!

The SomaVeda® T.A.E.L.R. (SomaVeda® Tool Assisted Energy Line Release) protocol extends the hands on Chirothesia or manual therapeutic hands on healing ministry with the use of adjuncts therapies and “tools”. One of the most important tools is to educate the client into what they can control, contribute and effectively do at home for themselves as the partner in the therapy.

Consider: Chronic Low Back Pain, Chronic Hip Pain?

More than these? Consider:

  • Nagging joint pains in your legs, lower back or hips
  • Walking with discomfort
  • Hips locking up
  • Bad posture
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Sluggishness in day to day life
  • High Anxiety
  • Digestive problems
  • Compromised Immune System
  • Circulatory issues
  • Loss of sexual performance
  • Lack of Explosiveness in the gym or sports

It’s not enough to know the clients needs to do their “home work” and self care, they need proper and sustained, detailed guidance on what to do and how to do it.

Your not going to be with them at home, so we need a home study program that targets the issue. You the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Certified Practitioner, Therapist, Minister or Physician do your amazing part. Refer your client (also yourself if your the one with the chronic pain!) to Critical Bench for an amazing program.

Please take a moment to read this important sponsored message from Critical Bench. 

Have you heard about Hip Flexors?

Hip Flexors are long muscles in the body and the only muscle that connects the upper body and lower body, also known as the psoas (pronounced so-az). (What are the Hip Flexors?) These muscles are unique in how they connect the torso and abdomen with the legs!

Your psoas…
…stabilize your trunk and spine during movement and sitting
…allow you to bend your hips and legs towards your chest
…support your internal organs
…is connected to your diaphragm which allows you to walk and breathe.
In other words, your psoas has a direct influence on your fight or flight response!

If the psoas get tight and weak, it can be a real pain but working certain muscles and doing the certain exercise combinations provide easy fixes. CLICK HERE for At Home Self Fix Program!

So… If you experience…
        low back pain
        hip pain
        stiffness
        pain while walking or moving
        trouble sleeping
        shortness of breath
You need to start undoing some of the damage done to your body and start helping the body to naturally heal itself.

Here are the best “At Home” self paced, strategies to Go from “Sore” to “Supple”.
