Tune into your body before performing a Thai Massage

Here I am with the Thai Teacher Pichest Boonthumme. I studied with Pichest in Chiang Mai along 2018/19 Pichest’s way of teaching is rather unique. He insists that his students learn how to feel into their bodies before starting any treatments, as different tension held within the body all require an individual approach.

About the journey

Massage and its Benefits | Remedial Massage Melbourne

All Melbourne Thai Treatment massage services are a great way to reduce stress and body ache.

Said so, services such as Remedial Massage, Thai Massage and MLD can accomplish more than just relaxing the body.

Indeed, Remedial Massage, Thai Massage and MLD can help in treating and preventing injuries.

As per result, Remedial Massage is a manual therapy, that combines different techniques. It can work on the superficial level of the body, like the lymphatic system, by using MLD or it can work on superficial and deep fascia, muscle, tendon and ligaments, using trigger point technique, MET, PNF and more…

Before the actual Remedial Massage, Giovanni will guide you through a series of Range of Motion (ROM)to individualise what part of the body needs more attention, and what muscles or groups of muscle in the body need treatment.

Indeed, Remedial Massage tends to improve your mobility, and flexibility reducing body pain and tension.

In regards to Thai Massage, at Melbourne Thai Treatment, Giovanni offers a traditional approach for this massage technique.

Thanks to the training done in Chiang Mai, Thailand, with Pichest Boonthumme, Giovanni did learn how to look at the body and its functionality through a different eye.

Customers, after a Thai Massage at Melbourne Thai Treatment, report feeling lighter, jelly, extremely relaxed, and refreshed.

This is possible thanks to the way Thai Massage works | Thai Massage Melbourne

By adopting a traditional approach, Giovanni is able not only to release the body’s tensions, along with a Thai Massage session but also to move energies and fluids within the body.

The traditional way of offering Thai Massage in fact is to work on the floor and not on a table. Along with the massage session, Giovanni will use his full body to deliver the benefits. It may use his feet or knees to work deeply on the body.

On the other hand, Thai Massage is not recommended for people who have conditions such as Hypertension, Diabetes n1, or Osteoporosis.

About MLD, Manual Lymphatic Drainage is probably the most relaxing technique Melbourne Thai Treatment offers.

It is a pain-free technique and its focus is on the lymphatic system.

MLD is as good as that can be used on conditions such as bonds fracture, sunburn, oedema, chronic pain, chronic inflammation, pre and post-surgery for speeding up the recovery and reduce the scar swelling.

All of this is possible thanks to the ability of MLD to speed up the lymphatic system capacity and workload.

Indeed, the lymphatic system, which is an under-skin suction system, works at a speed of 7 to 8 bits per minute on a resting mode. After treatment is speed reaches 30 to 32 bits per minute.

Thanks to the suction functionality, the lymphatic system removes all the excess liquid below the skin. All this excess liquid is sent to the blood system, for then be cleaned and filtered from the body organs, such as kidney, liver, heart and lungs.

Few are the absolute contraindication for MLD.

Giovanni holds a certificate 2 in applied MLD, which means it can work with customers who have an intact lymphatic system, and no lymph nodes were removed.

Said so, you may prefer one treatment to another one.

Remedial Massage is recommended for those people who have lesser mobility but still feel the need for a deep massage.

The level of undress for a Remedial Massage depends on the area that has to be treated.

You may need to remove your top limb clothes (bra always stays) and or lower limb clothes (underwear always stays).

Even though only the treated body area will be uncovered for the time of treatment, the rest of the body will be covered in towels.

For any assistance or special request, you can always talk to the Melbourne Thai Treatment therapist about it.

Thai Massage is more suggestible for those clients who need deep relaxation for body and mind but still feel like receiving deep tissue work done.

For receiving a Thai Massage you will be wearing pants and a t-shirt.

That’s for, Giovanni does provide clean Thai Fisherman pants and T-shirts for his client, but you are welcome to have your own.

If so, please just make sure that are comfortable cotton clothes, not tight.

Indeed, if synthetic (like leggings) abrasion may occur on the skin during the treatment.

What should I aspect from a Melbourne Thai Treatment Massage Service?

At Melbourne Thai Treatment Giovanni deliver a professional Massage Service.

Everyone is treated the same, no matter the age, cultural background or gender.

On the other hand, in regards how you may feel during and after the massage can be subjective to your body conditions.

Indeed, as already mentioned, Remedial Massage and Thai Massage can be strong types of treatment that may not everyone like.

Said so, the day after you may feel a bit of discomfort in the area treated. The discomfort can last 24 to 48 hours but would be nothing that would limit you to move around.

A heat pack can always help to reduce the ache sensation.

A short-term ache after treatment is normal. This can happen due to the body responding to the inflammation stimulation.
