The first medical Thai massage in Slovakia
The business is under the professional supervision of the doctor of the Outpatient clinic of integrative medicine and a general practitioner in Bratislava, which is also a partner medical entity. Medical Thai massage is a combination of traditional Thai massage and integrative medicine (integrative medicine = medicine aimed at eliminating the causes of diseases with a holistic approach to the patient and the use of non-standard procedures).
Techniques used in Thai massage
An alternative variant of acupuncture consisting of the massage of acupuncture points in order to release the blocks in the so-called meridians according to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine.
Reflexive massage consists of influencing those body points that have been secondarily changed as a result of a pathological reaction originating from the primary disease process of another locality. The neural connections are primarily responsible for reflex effects, which form a map of so-called reflex zones corresponding to individual organs.
The technique of stretching muscle complexes in order to remove spasms, contractions, stiffness and achieve normal elasticity, muscle tone, flexibility and functionality of locomotor organs.
Techniques targeted at soft tissues to achieve optimal perfusion, sensory comfort, relaxation, trigger point stimulation.
Techniques of passive movements guided by a therapist - manipulator in order to release the block anatomical position of movement structures using the laws of biomechanics.
Meditation - techniques of concentrating on one's own thought, emotional and sensory processes, on self-knowledge and detachment from external disturbing and stressful influences.
Thai massage directly affects the organ systems
- Movement system (muscles, tendons, joints)
- Vascular system (blood and lymphatic vessels)
- Nervous system (reflex effect)
- Psychosystem (sensory effect and secondary effect of relaxation)
The complex effect of Thai massage is generally known from direct as well as secondary effects on many systems such as the psyche (sleep, concentration, mental well-being, emotional balance, inner peace..), cardiovascular system, immune system, movement system (proper posture, reduction of painful conditions, joint function), performance, slowing down aging and detoxification.
Limitations of Thai massage
Like any therapeutic method, Thai massage has some limitations for health reasons. Many massage establishments state on their websites the health reasons when massage should not be applied, but it is rather a formality or alibism. It is not possible to contain the whole list of so-called contraindications and is therefore up to the customer or his solemn declaration that he is fit to undergo a massage. Although they are formally asked about some health restrictions, this is far from meeting the requirements of a medical examination or consultation, nor the legal principles of protection and handling of sensitive health data according to the GDPR. In general, the patient should be aware that in the case of open wounds, infectivity and any serious illness, he should not go for a massage unless recommended by the doctor. For these reasons, medical Thai massage is an option for those who want to combine non-traditional massage art with medicine and choose a consultation with a doctor or a comprehensive examination in a partner clinic of integrative medicine, where you can get other above-standard additional examinations or treatment to increase healing effect of Thai massage itself.
