How Are Thai Massage Sen Lines Different From Meridians?

Thai Massage sen lines versus Chinese meridians

Most massage therapists who have been in this profession for a some time do not just put in hours in exchange for money. They enjoy helping people, and part of their reward is seeing the beneficial results of their work. Their heart is in it, not just their hands.

The Thai Massage advantage

Thai Massage has some unique advantages over other massage styles. One of them is that it is very therapist friendly. Why is that?

Look at a western massage style like Swedish massage. The therapist is constantly using the hands to stroke, knead, or squeeze. This can get very tiring for the hands, and can even lead to injury which is one of the reasons why many massage therapists don’t last very long.
