A Full Body Massage: Benefits

Traditional Burmese Massage, also known as Myanmar Massage, or Burmese Touch It draws heavily from Indian, Thai and Chinese massage techniques and theories. It is intended to promote general health. Traditional Burmese massage therapy sessions don't involve oil lotions, creams, or pastes. But, it's important to note that the type of massage you receive will differ based on the location where the massage is being provided, and how the massage is carried out. Burmese massage therapy is typically short, focused and warm. It is geared toward relaxation. The objective of any massage is to help clients reduce muscular tension, increase the flexibility and mobility. increase lymphatic circulation and blood drainage, improve mental function, rejuvenate and revitalize the body, reduce muscles spasms and pains, as well as reduce stress. It is the main goal of massage therapy to create an atmosphere of peace and relaxation which will allow clients to recover faster from acute stressors.

In western nations like the US, Japan, Canada, Australia and New Zealand We've learned to adapt traditional methods of Myrtle and Chamomile massages to the unique culture and needs of the country in which we live. Massage is not a ritualized activity in the countries of the east like Myanmar. Through my life, I've had consistent experiences with Thai massage, Burmese massage, and any other type of massage. This was due to an group of Far East students who are descendants of "Druk Yai", a traditional massage therapist. This practice is not as numerous as different types of massage that are practiced throughout Thailand. But, it has its own unique healing methods and advantages.

I was an Asian massage therapist for six years in the northern part of Thailand. I did not see the same widespread use of "Myrrh", as I observed in other regions of Thailand. It's likely that the Thai language does not have the capability of accurately translating the word into English. I also spent a substantial period of time (about two years) in northern Myanmar, so I know some of the general myrrh treatment there. I've seen some shifts over the years which I believe are related to the shift from myrrh-based healing towards "herbal medical."

I believe that the lack of myrrh within the rest of Thailand is related to the acceptance of herbal or natural treatments. Massages in Thailand still employ creams, oils and waxes. I believe this is because of the vast number of messages (masseurs) that are hired for massages. A majority of Thai massage spas continue to make use of oil-based therapies since they are believed to be "luxurious".

In addition, many massaging spas in northern Thailand have taken on the idea of using aroma therapy and "Oriental herbal medicine." These techniques are used across Europe as well as the United States and Canada. Traditional healing techniques are not utilized in many massage spas in Thailand. I believe that this is because these kinds of practices do not conform to the guidelines of the larger, more conservatively-run massage spas in northern Thailand.

Traditional Burmese massage was an entirely different experience from western massages I had studied. This type that I would refer to as "Myanma" or "Myrobalan," involves gentle pressure applied to specific points on the body. This is done mainly through the kneading. The technique employs lengthy strokes, which aren't common in Thai massages, where the practitioner uses only one hand. After the massage my skin was softer and my was able to rest the best of all worlds.

I also learned that the traditional Burmese massages are typically accompanied by a specific herbal concoction. The most commonly used ingredients are those such as Lavan, Brahmi and Mistletoe. Though the herbs are different from one place to another, the aim is to create a sense of well-being. My research found that massage therapists from northern Thailand make use of Ostrich feathers
