Opal Thai massage health benefits

Thai massage is an ancient technique where a trained and highly skilled therapist

will stretch your body using assisted yoga poses. This type of massage focuses on the sen or energy points. As your massage therapist stretches your body, she will also massage and press along your sen lines.


Opal Thai Massage Helps Improve Circulation


Thai massage techniques work in the same way as yoga poses. While you are holding a pose, your blood slowly moves to the targeted areas. Once you release the pose, the circulation will flow back. Several positions are especially effective when it comes to circulation, such as the spinal twist, the shoulder stand, and the plough. Inverted poses can also assist lymphatic drainage.


Opal Thai Massage Improves Muscular Tension


To release tension in your muscles, your massage therapist will press into specific areas of your hands, thumbs, fingers, knuckles, and feet while she holds you in a stretch. This can help relieve tension and stress.Techniques involved include soft tissue manipulation, tissue compression, and acupressure.


Opal Thai Massage Relieves Stress


Massage therapy and yoga are both known as supporting approaches for mental healthcare. Through the manipulation of your muscles during Thai massage, mental and emotional stress is released. Thai massage also includes meditation to help with better stress management and in the end, ultimate relaxation.


Opal Thai Massage Boosts Your Immune System


An improved immune system is among the top benefits you can enjoy when you get an Opal Thai massage. With the use of massage to invigorate your nervous system and release toxins through improved circulation, your immunity to different diseases will be elevated. Practicing yoga is also believed to improve the immunity of your body and contribute to longevity.



The best Thai massage option for you

Opal Thai massage can definitely make you feel better and help free you from the pains and aches you have been experiencing. We offer quality Thai massage that combines stretching and oil. Traditional Thai massage ensures that you will get the best results you need and deserve.

The benefits of reflexology

At Opal Thai Massage and Spa this ancient form of massage is applied by professionals and aids in several aspects of relaxation, improved wellness, and pain relief.

  • Encourages Relaxation - Reflexology can flood the neural pathways with relaxation, inducing a state of peace and tranquility within the body and mind. This results in the reduction of stress. Stress reduction through reflexology is frequently associated with relieving sleep disorders. Your body returns to a more relaxed and balanced state needed for sufficient sleep.
  • Promotes Nervous System Stimulation - The brain is able to speed up cognitive strengths increasing the speed of physical reactions, which boosts your memory. Overall, the entire brain is able to work faster and more efficiently.
  • Relieves Migraines and Headaches - Reflexology is often sought after by people in pain, because it can reduce the severity of migraines and headaches by increasing blood flow and relieving muscle tension. Since stress and psychological factors often manifest themselves as migraine symptoms, stress-induced headaches can also be eliminated.
  • Revitalizes Nerve Function - Nerve endings lose sensitivity in parts of our body as we age. Reflexology has been associated with the stimulation of more than 7,000 different nerve endings during a 1-hour session, naturally increasing nerve functioning and reactivity. This can help improve overall functionality and reduce toxicity within the body.
  • Improves Circulation - Probably the most well known result of reflexology is an improvement in circulation throughout the entire body, as blood and oxygen are being cycled throughout the body more effectively.
  • Increases Energy Levels - By aligning the functions of organ and muscle systems, reflexology has the potential to increase metabolism and energy creation. In other words, reflexology sessions can help to re-energize your body and mind.
  • Relieves Plantar Fasciitis Pain - Reflexology can help ease the pain and discomfort caused by plantar fasciitis. It uses pressure point techniques to release tension, relieving heel pain. A natural cure for plantar fasciitis is a professional foot massage.
