Numerous Thai Hospitals Have Earned Prestigious JCI Accreditation

And the first to meet Joint Commission International standards in the whole of Asia was Bangkok’s celebrated Bumrungrad International Hospital, meaning it was the first Asian facility to pass muster in over 350 international standards on their rigorous checklist.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is probably the most famous form of massage. This style of massage involves targeting the upper layers of the muscles combined with movement of the joints.

The strokes used in Swedish massage are mainly divided as follows:

  • Effleurage. This is targeted at soft tissues through smooth, gliding strokes
  • Petrissage. This involves rolling, kneading and squeezing.
  • Tapotement. This is done with cupped hands, edge of the hands or fingers through short tapping strokes.
  • Friction. This is done by causing soft tissues to rub against each other through circular movements.

    Swedish massage can help with recovery after an injury or just help with relaxation and rejuvenation.
