Thai Massage in Chicago
In Chicago, where winters can be brutal and summers are overflowing with things to do, stress relief is key. If you’ve been feeling a little tense lately and wishing you could trade your body in for a newer model, Thai massage might be what you’re looking for!
Traditional full body massages are great; however, sometimes the solution is not to dig in but to stretch out.
What Is a Thai Massage?
In Thai massages, your massage therapist works with your body to relieve tension, soreness, and stiffness, so you leave feeling like a newer, longer you. Whether you have arthritis, are sore from exercise, or Chicago winter has you feeling stiff, your massage therapist will discuss how to best address your needs with you.
Then, they will use their hands, arms, feet, legs, and knees to stretch your body, apply deep muscle compression, and gently move your joints. It’s a little bit like yoga but with none of the work (for you, anyway).
And if you’re imagining struggling to keep a sheet on the whole time, don’t worry! Thai massage happens fully clothed and on a comfortable, padded floor mat, like at Chicago Bodywork.
Benefits of Thai Massages
What many don’t realize when booking their Thai massage in Chicago is that it can help:
- Relieve soreness, stiffness, and pain from conditions like arthritis, sciatica, hypertension, and headaches
- Improve blood circulation and allow joints like shoulders and hips to move better and more easily
- Reduce stress and boost energy
How Long Is a Thai Massage?
Most Thai massage sessions are 60 minutes long.
Remember when we said Thai massage was like going to a yoga class and doing none of the work? Well, your massage therapist is doing that work(out) for you, which is why you probably won’t find anyone offering a longer session.
How Much Does a Thai Massage Cost?
Typically, this type of massage will start around $100 for a 1 hour session of pulling, stretching, and tension-relief.
