There is a level of fatigue that I call unrecognizable. The world is chasing, and you want to stop, and it does not bring you relief. You wake up tired in the morning and your responsibilities have not disappeared. We are overworked when we can not deny others. We accept other people’s duties, irritability and frustration appear. Stress can also manifest itself in the form of insomnia, neuralgia or migraines.
Resting is also hindered by the belief that to be a valuable person, you still need to act and prove something. When the weekend comes, we bombard ourselves with tasks, and on vacation we want to experience as much as possible to make good use of our time. We operate not until the end of energy, but until we are exhausted.
No wonder that forms of relaxation are more and more popular that do not require any activity from us, such as massages. The most popular oriental massages include Thai massage. Once it was reserved for members of the royal family and monks, today it is available in massage salons. Thai massage combines Indian, Chinese and Thai massage techniques.
It allows you to achieve similar health benefits as yoga training, but does not require any effort. During the massage, we adopt similar items as during the yoga exercise. Elements of acupressure and Ayurveda are also used. Thai massage was known and valued in ancient times. It involves compressing specific points on the body, which is why no oils are used. Pressing specific points on the body (on the Sen line, which passes through the feet, legs, hands, back and head) is designed to release energy and restore energy balance in the body.

Thai massage was surrendered by Buddha himself, and his forerunner was doctor and friend of Buddha Shivago Komarpaja. Some people enter a state of deep relaxation during Thai massage, and after the treatment regain vitality and clarity of mind. It’s a way to regenerate quickly, be more productive and take care of yourself. Thai massage is lying down.
