Improve your health and well being more specifically deep-tissue massage (also known as myofascial release) is a type of massage that seeks to release the myofascial restrictions of the deeper muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body.
It uses the same principles and strokes of effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement, traction, and vibration similar to that of Swedish, with slight variations on the focus and depth.
The primary focus of deep tissue massage is to address specific tight muscles and to correct postural distortion caused by these tight muscles.
There is a misconception that deep tissue simply means classical massage with heavier pressure. A practitioner may use very deep pressure without really addressing postural problem
Reduce chance of injury
Decrease high blood pressure
Strengthen the immune system by increasing circulation
Maintain the health of the elderly or disabled
Conversely, a practitioner may sometimes use light pressure in a precise manner to facilitate deeper muscle relaxation, with little or no effort.

More importantly, the idea of deep tissue is not necessarily focused on pressure but should be focused on realigning the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues

leaving you feeling replenished.

What to expect:

The bamboo cane replaces the therapist’s hands, and it is able to give a deeper, firmer massage. The cane is held by the therapist and rolled over the muscle with the same strokes they would use with their hands. The muscle is then kneaded, which assists in the release of tension and easing of knots. Warm Bamboo Massage at Thai Orchid Spa uses techniques that incorporate smooth bamboo rods of various diameters, cut in a range of lengths. These bamboo pieces represent the tools used for the Thai Bamboo Massage. Thai Orchid Spa Therapist is then ready to use these tools as an extension of their hands, forearms and elbows. This enables them to work deeply and effectively, which can produce, and deep, calming and therapeutic treatment. The Thai Warm Bamboo Massage is a full body massage which takes between 60 and 90 minutes depending on the length of time requested by the Spa guest. The Bamboo Massage Tools vary in size because different body parts require the use of different sizes and shapes of bamboo to be used in order to accommodate the shapes of the muscles, joints and bony structures of the body.

The Bamboo plant belongs to a family of “true grasses” called Poaceae, which contains over 10,000 species. Bamboo varies from small annuals to giant timber bamboo. Amazingly, in the right conditions, bamboo is able to grow up to 3 feet a day and usually is mature at around 7 years. When cut, as long as the root system is left in tact it will continue to grow more shoots. Now that is quite the renewable resource!

Long before paper was invented, Monks in the Buddhist Temples recorded their history on thin sheets of bamboo. This close relative of sugar cane was used in many ways from food ingredients, making tools, spiritual offerings and even building houses. At that time, bamboo was such an important part of daily life that it naturally was used as a form of creative and spiritual expression, which became meaningful to rituals and healing practices. In Thailand, it was in the North-East provinces that the use of bamboo for massage first became famous. It has since been available in many rural health clinics and small day spas and is showing up more and more in large spas in Bangkok and internationally.

Just because we are seeing bamboo used in massages at in Day Spas in the west for the first time does not mean that this is a “new” technique. It does have deep roots in tradition and is a truly exotic and effective method of delivering bodywork. Sabai Thai Spa is always trying to incorporate a wide variety of interesting spa offerings steeped with history and meaning that may be less accessible in the modern world we are living in.This relaxing, therapeutic massage is a deserved treat for anyone with a busy schedule.

Bamboo massage uses warmed bamboo-cane pieces which are rolled over the body with the same strokes used during a therapeutic massage. Bamboo is a beautiful and functional wood – breathable, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal – perfect for this luxurious style of treatment. The warm bamboo heats the body’s tissues increasing blood flow, allowing muscles to relax more deeply, releasing tension and easing knots. The therapist can then provide a deeper more healing massage and your skin will become soft and supple.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability promote relaxation and well-being and as a recreational activity.

Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or a massage device.

Definitions vary, but in the Canada, a relaxation massage is usually a full-body treatment involving soft music, soft lighting and aromatherapy oils. You will have a long, luxurious massage which will use all kinds of techniques including long strokes, gentle kneading and rolling of skin and muscle, and perhaps some rhythmic rocking from side to side. It is a passive treatment. You probably won’t be stretched or manoeuvred into any yoga-like positions, as you are, for example, in Thai massage. You just lie there and take it. This is the massage to choose if you just want to chill out, and be pampered and spoiled.

A good relaxation massage relieves stress and tension in your muscles and will leave you oozing with a sense of wellbeing. It achieves this because of the general benefits of massage: it improves your circulation, so your organs and skin get more oxygen; it moves fluid through your lymphatic system. A relaxation massage encourages your body to digest its food, and get rid of its toxins. It will help you to sleep better. A massage will also help un-knot any muscles, soothe aches and sprains and encourage the skin to heal minor abrasions.Royal Orchid

DEEP TISSUE :

deep tissue massage

Deep Tissue or Sports Massage : it is similar to Swedish massage, deep tissue massage uses slower and firmer strokes and pressure than other treatments – deep finger pressure that concentrates on particular areas, and follows or goes across the fibres of muscles and tendons. Some types of deep tissue treatments include:Deep Tissue Sports Massage.

This deep tissue sports massage therapy works on the deeper layers of tension and provides a therapeutic benefit. Combined with Swedish techniques, focused massage is applied to deeper muscles and connective tissue to relief chronic pain and tension. This is ideal for those who prefer deeper muscular work or who are challenged by high levels of daily stress, and is especially suitable for athletes.

Deep tissue massage is often used to treat people who are recovering from accidents, and for sports injuries as it increases blood circulation in muscles that are underused, relieves chronic muscle tension throughout the body, and can also break down scar tissue and “knots” deep in the muscles.

Bowen Massage

Bowen Massage

Body Treatment Bowen Technique

Body Treatment with a unique Bowen Technique Treatment affects the body in ways that promote Healing, Pain Relief and Recovery of Energy. The Experience of the Treatment is Gentle, Subtle and Relaxing, these are some of the main features that make The Bowen Technique so Unique. Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Sports Injury Therapists and Physiotherapists are among the many professional practitioners who use The Bowen Technique and all who practice it are continually amazed at the effectiveness of this simple and gentle form of ‘Hands on Therapy’.

Where Did the Bowen Technique Originate?

Thomas Ambrose Bowen pioneered the Bowen Technique. Born in 1916 in Geelong, Australia. After working in miscellaneous labouring jobs as a young man, he developed a great interest in massage and bodywork and spent time observing football trainers and others involved with sports. By the time he was in his early 40’s, this gifted man had established a full time practice in remedial therapy using the technique he had developed. In 1978, when he was interviewed by a Parliamentary Committee looking into Complementary Medicine, he stated, under oath, that he treated about 280 patients per week with the help of an assistant and a receptionist- an incredible 13,000 patients a year, 88% of whom only required two or three treatments! Mr Bowen died in the early 1980’s but today there are a number of flourishing therapies based on his work.

What Does a Bowen Treatment Involve?

A Bowen Technique treatment will take approximately 45 minutes to one hour. The treatment can be performed through lightweight clothing or directly on the skin. We recommend that a course of two or three treatments, at weekly intervals, are often sufficient to achieve lasting relief from even long standing pain, although further treatments may sometimes be required. It is recommended that during a course of treatments other physical therapies such as osteopathy or chiropractic are not mixed with The Bowen Technique.

How Does the Bowen Technique Work?

The Bowen Technique Practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points on the body to make rolling type moves that aim to work on the muscles, soft tissue and energy within the body. During the treatment there are periods in which the patient is left resting to allow the body to absorb the gentle moves that have been performed. This gives the body time to make the subtle and fine adjustments that help to relieve tension, reduce pain and initiate the healing process. The Bowen Technique encourages the body to realign itself; there is no manipulation or adjustment of hard tissue and no force is used or needed. The Bowen Technique is not a form of Massage.

What Can the Bowen Technique Safely Treat?

Common problems include back and neck pain, knee problems, sports injuries, RSI, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and respiratory conditions. Conditions such as chronic fatigue, hay fever, headache, kidney problems and problems requiring lymphatic drainage have responded favourably to The Bowen Technique. Some people use The Bowen Technique as a means of stress management and health maintenance, seeing their Practitioner regularly two to four times a year.
