We’ve all had some sort of massage in our life; whether it be by a professional or a loved one trying to help us release tension and stress. I’ve recently learned about Shiatsu and Thai massages, they are a bit different from the traditional, here’s how.
Thai massage focuses on stretching techniques with a goal to improve flexibility and range of motion, where Shiatsu massage places more attention to applying pressure on what would be considered acupuncture points. Both take place on a mat, such as the one above, with a therapist; which results in a relaxing energizing treatment.
Thai massage has also been called ‘yoga for lazy people’ because some of the same poses are applied but you don’t have to do anything except enjoy the feeling. The ultimate goal is to improve flexibility and range of motion so finding the proper mat, just like in yoga, to perform or receive Shiatsu and Thai massages is essential, and we’ve found the best one.
This Shiatsu Thai massage mat is the best quality studio size mat available today! It’s made of untreated cotton batting and natural cotton canvas, 3 inches deep for incredible comfort, made to order and ships for free. Wide enough for both practitioner and client to stretch out with ample space, yet also portable with carrying straps. Who could ask for more?
