Can a Thai massage do damage?
Even at the lowest intensity, Thai massage can sometimes cause further injury to the body. People who have cancer, are pregnant, or are recovering from surgery should not undergo a Thai massage. The physical intensity of this massage technique could lead to health complications or worsen preexisting injuries.
Why do Thai massages hurt?

Is Thai massage good for you?
Thai massage is an ancient practice with many benefits that are supported by modern science. It may reduce the severity of your headaches, decrease lower back and joint pain, increase your flexibility, calm your anxieties, and energize your mind and body. Thai massage isn’t a passive treatment.
What is special about Thai massage?
Thai Massage helps preserve the health of the practitioner through the ability to use many body parts and ideal ergonomics. It adds motion and stretching techniques to the list of benefits of massage therapy, and it incorporates a level of awareness that elevates it from body work to a true healing art.
Should you be sore after a Thai massage?
It’s normal to feel sore after a massage. The technique carries blood and nutrients to your muscles while eliminating toxins. After stimulating muscles that you may not usually use, you might experience delayed onset muscle soreness. This is a physical response to the inflammation as your body heals.
Do you wear clothes for a Thai massage?

What is the difference between a Thai massage and a normal massage?
Whereas Swedish and deep tissue massages take place atop a massage table, Thai massages take place upon a floor mat. During a Thai massage, the masseuse moves all around and above the client to access a wider range of angles over each part of the body, even in cases when the client is much larger than the masseuse.
Why do they slap you after a massage?
Possibly the most obvious reason we use percussion during massage treatments is because it helps ease your body into much deeper levels of relaxation. Desensitizing the nerves in that area allows the muscles to relax and the muscles are given “permission” to let go of some tension they may still be holding on to.
