FAQs About Nuad Thai Massage in Calgary

What is Nuad Thai Massage?

Nuad (นวด) translates as massage, rub, batter, or knead.  Nuad Thai Massage is regarded as part of the art, science and culture of traditional Thai healthcare.  As a non-medicinal remedy and manual therapy, it involves bodily manipulation in which the practitioner helps rebalance the patient’s body, energy and structure to treat illnesses believed to be caused by the obstruction of energy flow along “sen”, lines understood to crisscross the human body.  Therapists perform a combination of manipulations using their hands, elbows, knees and feet, together with herbal hot compresses to reduce inflammation.  Pressure, compression and rubbing are applied to boost blood circulation, reduce muscular soreness, and ease the aches and pains of conditions such as insomnia, depression, rheumatism, Parkinson’s, Office Syndrome, etc.

Is Nuad Thai Massage a legitimate health practice?

Absolutely!  In 2019, Nuad Thai Massage has been added to UNESCO’s prestigious list, Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, which features traditions and practices passed across the generations.  By being part of the list, Nuad Thai Massage is recognized as something worthy and requires active effort to be preserved for future generations.

How is Nuad Thai Massage different from other massages?

Unlike conventional massages, Nuad Thai Massage involves a lot of movement and a series of different positions.  Therapists use not only their hands but sometimes their forearms and knees to apply pressure.  Oil is seldom involved in Nuad Thai Massage.

What do I need to prepare for Nuad Thai Massage?

Just bring comfortable clothes!  Nuad Thai Massage takes place on a mat on the floor or low table with clothes on.

I am pregnant.  Is Nuad Thai Massage right for me?

Despite the benefits of Nuad Thai Massage, there are times when we might request clients to wait first, depending on clients’ conditions including moments immediately after having a meal, medical setbacks (such as osteoporosis and some types of cancer), or being pregnant.  In addition, clients recently recovered from an accident or a bone fracture, with open wounds, or recently installed prosthetics are also encouraged to wait at least one month after surgery before receiving massages.

For more details, clients are encouraged to consult with us directly via telephone or email.

Is Nuad Thai Massage equivalent to medical treatment or medication?

No, Nuad Thai Massage cannot replace comprehensive medical treatment or medication – BUT it can enhance and support the effectiveness of medical treatment or medication.

What To Expect During Thai Massage in Calgary

Before The Nuad Thai Massage

  • Attire: Nuad Thai Massage is conducted fully clothed, so it’s recommended to wear clothing that allows freedom of movement, such as yoga or exercise attire. Long pants are preferred for comfort during the session.
  • Arrival and Health Assessment: If it’s your first visit, arrive 5-10 minutes early to fill out a health questionnaire. Communicate any health issues, past or present injuries, or movement restrictions with the therapist. It’s crucial for the therapist to tailor the session to your specific needs.
  • Pregnancy Consideration: Nuad Thai Massage is not performed on pregnant women, and it’s important to communicate this information to the therapist.

During The Nuad Thai Massage

  • Body Movements and Stretches: The practitioner utilizes slow, deliberate movements to guide your body through a series of stretches. The weight and pressure of their body are employed to assist in the stretches.
  • Techniques Used: Unlike Swedish massage, no oils are used, and muscles are not kneaded. Instead, the therapist employs hands, thumbs, elbows, and knees to stretch, pull, and rock various parts of the body.
  • Yoga-Like Movements: Some stretches may resemble yoga poses, with the practitioner holding or gently pulling you into positions.
  • Communication is Key: If you experience discomfort, it’s crucial to communicate with the practitioner. They can adjust the pressure and intensity of the stretches to ensure a comfortable and effective session.

After The Nuad Thai Massage

The post-massage phase is equally important for extending the benefits of the session:

  • Epsom Salt Bath: Prolong the relaxation by indulging in a warm Epsom salts bath. This not only soothes the muscles but also contributes to a sense of calm.
  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and aid in the flushing out of toxins from the body.
