Your Healthcare Holiday Dollars go Farther in Thailand

Medical costs in the West are skyrocketing and patients are flocking to Asia to save, particularly to Thailand where outlays for treatment are generally five to ten times less than what they’d be in the US and Europe.

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.
