In Dubai, many ask what is Thai Massage about.
What is the difference?
There is no oil nor lotion in Thai Massage. A normal session of traditional Thai Massage is between 2 to 3 hours, during which the masseuse would guide you in many rhythmic stretching and pressing of the entire body. Totally Dry and it comes with a lot of cracking sounds. Yes, it is the loosening of your joints that has gone rusty. Your toes, fingers and just about all areas. Followed by walking on your back. The outcall masseuse
can balance herself with the wall or with a bar above the massage bed, using her heels and toes to create the impact onto your shoulder blades and all the important areas of your back.
If you happen to be new to this, you might feel discomfort initially as your joints and muscles may not have been stretched for a good number of years. Maybe you might find it difficult to relax. Whats more, she can also use her knees or arms to ensure the proper effect in the therapeutic session. At the end of the session, your body would sense a great liberation. Not exactly from the Masseuse., that is.
You should try and most probably be appreciative to the skills of the Thai Traditional Masseuse and the benefits that comes along with it. After a few rounds of such, if you persevere, you can feel that you joints and muscles are like many years younger.
Many massage professionals like to use oil and applying a few techniques of Thai Massage into their practice. It is a common for a Masseuse to integrate and to perform what is better and comfortable. You cannot find a good relaxing massage if the person performing it is not comfortable. Therefore some flexibility of expectation is recommended.
