Many nationalities have sporting traditions and the traditions of sports massages, either has Thailand. Along with golf, football, tennis and other international sports in Thailand there are very ancient sports and single combats such as Thai boxing, Takro and boat races.
Thai sports massage also has deep historical roots that goes back to centuries, and closely connected to the ancient sports traditions and it has many features.
Thai sports massage, as well as any other sports massages, aims to improve the physical abilities of athletes to prepare muscles for physical exertion, as well as removal of fatigue and the speedy withdrawal of lactic acid that builds up in the muscle during doing sport. This massage normalizes blood circulation, metabolism, entering more oxygen into the tissues and may be useful in the treatment of sports injuries.
Despite many similarities, Thai sports massage is also worldwide practiced. During the massage, the therapist uses not only the fingers and palms as in the usual sports massage, but also use soft part of the hands before the elbow, traditionally used in Polynesian massage (Lomi Lomi). Depending on the intensity and impact, Thai sports massage can be both refreshing and smoothing (almost relaxing). Even if you have use to take other sports massages, it is not a reason to deny the pleasure of Thai sport massage. Believe me, you will not regret the time you may have spent on it.
