How does Thai massage improve posture and body alignment?
The stretches in Thai massage help relax the muscles so that they naturally regain natural flexibility and tone, which helps relieve chronic stiffness and improve mobility.
When you were growing up, chances are you had an adult tell you, “Stand up straight.” “Don’t slouch.” “Keep your shoulders back”. As a teen you might have ignored this advice, but body alignment is important. It affects many aspects of your health.
Healthy joints move in distinct patterns that include flexion and extension, left and right lateral flexion, and left and right rotation. When we have a poor posture or live sedentary lives and fail to move through our full range of motion regularly, the muscles of the torso become rigid and resist healthy movement. This can result in joint pain, headaches, poor sleep or stress and anxiety.
