Thai massage in the prevention and treatment of scoliosis

01.04.2024

Thai massage is a combination of classical muscle manipulation techniques, acupressure, muscle relaxation, and twisting and stretching techniques inspired by yoga practices. Thai massage and yoga therapy: the similarities in approaches and techniques are obvious. They not only complement each other, but also create a harmonious combination to achieve physical and emotional well-being. This unique complex has a healing effect on all the body systems, improving blood circulation, relaxing muscles, increasing the flexibility of tendons, ligaments and joints, relieving stress and tension.

One condition that may find relief thanks to Thai massage is scoliosis. This is a structural spine deformation, expressed by a lateral curvature in the form of the letter S or C. Scoliosis can lead to discomfort and limitation of organ function, and also affect overall well-being.

Scoliosis can be caused by both structural factors and secondary conditions such as muscular dystrophy or cerebral palsy. In cases of structural scoliosis caused by unknown reasons, treatment can be difficult. However, Thai massage for scoliosis can significantly relieve the discomfort associated with this condition, providing improvements in the life quality and overall well-being.

How to do a massage for scoliosis: basic techniques and recommendations

At the first stage of massage for scoliosis, the patient lies on his stomach, and the massage therapist’s hands are along his body. Slow movements along the back gradually increase the load on the muscles, paying special attention to the spine. This is followed by rubbing, where the position of the massage therapist’s hands changes every second, making movements on each side of the back.

The peculiarity of massage for scoliosis lies in the last stage - additional lumbar and back massage with the help of weight. Slow movements smooth out the muscles, starting from the spine, slowly rising to the upper back. This stage includes several approaches, each of which lasts up to 15 minutes.

For the effective treatment and scoliosis prevention, it is recommended to take at least three courses per year, consisting of several massage sessions. It is important to note that the duration of each session should be determined by a qualified professional in accordance with the individual needs of the patient.

Such a massage technique for scoliosis is a must-have for people:

  • leading a sedentary lifestyle;
  • who drive too often;
  • suffering from the consequences of spinal curvature.

More detailed information about the procedures can be found on the Royal Thai Spa website. Performing Thai massage requires specialized knowledge and skills.

Results and benefits of massage for scoliosis

Questions about whether massage helps with scoliosis, whether it can be done and whether scoliosis can be corrected or cured by massage are becoming increasingly relevant today, taking into account the prevalence of this problem. Scoliosis disrupts the natural spine curve, leading to stooping, bowing of the shoulders and hips, and deformation of the ribs and limbs. Asymmetry caused by scoliosis negatively affects the muscle tone, causing tension in certain muscle groups.

During a session for the scoliosis prevention and treatment, a massage therapist applies pressure to trigger points to reduce muscle contraction and restore balance in the spinal column using compression and tapping with traditional instruments. A consultation with a massage therapist at the Royal Thai Spa will help determine the optimal frequency of sessions to restore the body balance.

Thai back massage technique for scoliosis offers a number of benefits, including:

  • easing muscle tension;
  • increasing joint flexibility;
  • improving comfort by reducing pain;
  • increased blood supply to muscles and tissues;
  • relaxation in areas of increased muscle tension;
  • improvement of emotional state;
  • increasing the immune response and the body's ability to fight infections.

Multiple methods have been developed for the treatment of scoliosis and its prevention, but Thai massage not only helps restore the functions of the musculoskeletal system, but also helps improve metabolism. Thai massage and its effect on digestion are beyond doubt. It combines ancient traditions and modern technologies, which allows you to restore and maintain healthy digestion, and also reduces the risk of developing gastrointestinal diseases.
