Thai Massage Therapy, Energy Release and Detoxification

Thai Massage Therapy, Energy Release and Detoxification
At first I didn’t believe it. Thought it was just bull. Crap.

You see, I once had this Thai Massage training course in Chiang Mai (actually it was a Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage course), where a teacher explained to the group that detox and release comes with red skin and heat. As I am rather the skeptical type, I was merely like: “Okay, if you rub long enough, the skin becomes red and hot, doesn’t it?” And that was it to me. Said and done.

But in the past two months, I had four clients showing these “symptoms” while I was working on some “knots and tangles,” let’s say some tensed areas and persistent muscle contractions. Two clients showed this around the scapulae, one client in the left neck and left trapezius muscle area, and the other client on the lower neck area and the whole spine top to bottom. Well, I cannot deny it anymore — heat and red!

Release. Detox. I saw it, I felt it, and I experienced the emotional reactions of the clients. Intense release.

I suppose it’s some kind of “blocked, stagnant energy” that flows away — to the surface. Out of the body. Trapped energy-surplus which seeks its way out and materializes on the skin. A temporary overload of the area where release manifests.

But it doesn’t always happen this way. I see emotional release often accompanied with other expressions — crying, shaking, trembling, sighing, or just total muscle and nerve relaxation. Or being very cold. Or calm. Peace.

Well, I can only add this to the story — it seems that the lady teacher of the training course was perhaps right after all.
