Thai or Shiatsu- which is better for you?

Thai and Shiatsu have both originated from Asian countries. Shiatsu is the ancient healing therapy from Japan, while Thai is from Thailand, with a little influence of Ayurveda from India, on it. Shiatsu is all about focusing on the particular trigger points on the body and improving the circulatory system in the body. 12 meridian points in the body, and the Qi energy flow through these points, are the prime focuses of Shiatsu. However, the existence of these points has not been proved scientifically. Thai technique is more like yoga, where your hands and legs are stretched in various positions that loosen the muscles. Thai is more relaxing when compared to Shiatsu. Because, some will have sore muscles after Shiatsu, and will have to take a pain-reliever to overcome the soreness. Today, there are various equipments for massage, especially the massage chairs, that have all the different massage techniques incorporated within them. When you buy a massage chair, you don?t have to go to Thailand, Japan or Sweden for an authentic massage experience, you can have it all, in your home, for endless hours.

Since, Shiatsu focuses on the trigger points and exerts intense pressure on these points, it can leave you sore. But, when you get used to it, you?ll find it relaxing and soothing. This technique is ideal for dealing with mobility issues and arthritis. Muscle knots will be efficiently removed, and the blood circulation will improve all along the body. Excellent blood-circulation plays a key-role in making you look young. This technique lowers the cortisol levels and increases the endorphins levels. These endorphins are known to reduce the brain?s perception of pain, and trigger the euphoria feelings.

Our brain, its perception and the hormones it releases, play a significant role in how we feel, and what we feel. Thai massage triggers the dopamine and serotonin hormones, sometimes oxytocin too. These hormones will make you happy, feel relaxed and confident. Thai comprises of five basic strokes: kneading, tapping, vibration, sliding, and friction; all these strokes will be extremely gentle. If you are looking for relaxing and calm massage experience, then Thai is for you.
