What’s the difference between Thai and Swedish massages?

Thai Massages

Massage techniques have been practiced in Thailand for thousands of years. Thai massages are considered a type of alternative medicine, as the practice is grounded in the energy of the body. Many traditional Thai masseuses believe that massages can help release tension in the body by unblocking the body’s energy pathways, a belief that has spiritual connections to Thai religions. In Thai massages, the body is rhythmically rocked and pushed, and positioned into many yoga positions. Because of the combination of yoga and massage techniques, Thai massages have been commonly referred to as assisted yoga. This massage can relieve back pain, joint discomfort, and increase flexibility.

Swedish Massages

Swedish massages are very common massages and widely practiced in the United States. Swedish massages are intended to focus heavily on relaxation through applying pressure to the muscles in long, repetitive movements. This massage technique can increase blood flow throughout the body. A masseuse will focus primarily on the back, neck, legs, arms, hands, and feet, kneading the areas in a circular motion. Swedish massages should not be confused with deep tissue massages, which apply far more pressure.
