Malay Traditional massage is a type of
deep tissue massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle
and fascia, also called connective tissue.Normally the pressure will
generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as
the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also
known as "adhesions.")
Will A Malay Traditional Massage Hurt?
It shouldn't hurt, but it's likely to be a bit more uncomfortable than
Aromatherapy massage. You should always feel free to speak up if the
pressure is too much for you.
How Fast Will I Get Results With A Malay Traditional Massage Massage?
It's important to be realistic about what one Malay Traditional massage
can achieve. Many people ask for more pressure, thinking that if the
therapist just pushes hard enough, they can get rid of all their knots
in an hour. This just won't happen. In fact, undoing chronic knots and
tension built up over a lifetime is best achieved with an integrated
program that includes exercise, work on your posture and ways of moving,
relaxation techniques and a regular program of massage.
Finally, while Malay Traditional massage is certainly valuable, you
should be aware that gentle styles of massage like craniosacral therapy
can also produce profound release and realignment in the body.
