When you're in need of a massage, you would have opted for either a Swedish massage, Balinese massage, Deep Tissue massage, Shiatsu massage or Thai massage depending on your purpose.
The Swedish massage is great first-timers as its long, smooth, sweeping strokes help cramped or tense muscles and improve blood flow to the skin.
Unlike Swedish, in the Balinese massage, techniques are performed very slow and very deep (to clear energy blockages) with essential oil. Also the Balinese will always massage the stomach as this is beneficial for colon health and the reproductive system. Ideal for those with damaged tissue or strained muscles or joints, and for anyone experiencing some emotional loss or trauma.
If you're an athlete and you need pressure on the muscles while relieving pain and healing injuries, the Deep Tissue massage is for you.
The Shiastsu massage involves application of pressure to your body using fingers, thumbs and palms and in turn, freeing blockages that prevent energy from reaching affected areas. Best for those suffering from fatigue, stress, headaches and arthritis.
For the improvement of energy, increased flexibilty and overall health and well-being, the Thai massage involves the the therapist using every part of his or her body—hands, knees, legs, and feet—to not only stretch you but also apply pressure on your muscles and loosen your joints.
These massages are offered globally and if you're travelling to Asian countries, massages are relatively cheap and available in comfortable settings.
Recently, the Malaysian Ministry of Travel and Culture (MOTAC), Malaysian Association of Wellness and Spa, and the Association of Malaysia Spas launched Urutan Malaysia (Malaysia massage). Malaysia is the melting pot of cultures and it's only natural that the Malaysia massage combines the massage techniques from the Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous communities.
THE MALAYSIA MASSAGE
There are a few different types of massages or relaxation techniques involved in making the Urutan Malaysia a holistic massage.
Herbal Foot Soak
Regular soaking of the feet promotes health and wellness as the skin absorbs the herbal elements through the feet.
Qi Gong Breathing
The presence of special breathing practices in the ancient cultures has always been a mystery to people in the Western world. There are numerous beneficial physiological mechanisms that are triggered when we turn our attention to the breath and then increase it's volume. When volume, rate and attention level are all altered, dramatic physiological, and even emotional, changes can occur. As it turns out, unknown to science until very recently, the action of the lungs, diaphragm and thorax are a primary pump for the lymph fluid, a lymph heart. This mechanism may be more important to the lymph heart than body movements. In addition, the breath is the source for oxygen which is the key element in the body's ability to produce energy. And the act of relaxed, full breathing moves the function of the autonomic nervous system towards balance or homeostasis.
Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment that has been practiced in India for thousands of years, and is incredibly relaxing. Part of the Hindu health care practice of Ayurveda, Indian head massage focuses on your head, neck and shoulders.
This invoives stimulating the lympathic and blood flow in the body using long kneading strokes using the palm or thumb pressure sliding continuopusly in one direction towards the heart. This helps increase blood flow, providing a calming effect and encourages mobility and agility.
Using thumb pressure to the various pressure points in the body, this deep tissue massage rejunevates, restores mobility and flexibility.
Reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of specific areas of the body by using the application of pressure on specific areas of the body.
To heighten the five senses, the Urutan Malaysia journey is accessorized with Malaysian therapeutic music, traditional motifs, aromatic herbs and spices.
