Vietnam massage can be compared to a deep tissue massage that many visitors might be more familiar with elsewhere in the world. Focused on muscles and tendons, pressure points are targeted based on the ancient Chinese philosophies the technique is based on. In particular, one purpose is to rebalance the spine’s chi – improving a person’s vital force. Therapists use a combination of their thumbs and knuckles to achieve just the right pressure and to target exactly the right spots.
Many full body massage therapies around the world start at the feet and slowly work their way up the body. Our Vietnam therapist begins on the back – usually the tensest part of the body that benefits from massage and pressure point therapy immediately. The massage then proceeds to the other parts of the body before finishing at the head and the multiple pressure points there. Even if you don’t opt for a full body massage, massages targeting certain parts of the body will also target other body parts. This is based on the belief that different parts of the body influence other areas, so Vietnamese massage takes on a holistic approach.
The end result of a Vietnam massage is to reduce tension and induce relaxation. People also report feeling a sense of rejuvenation after a massage in Vietnam. In terms of health, Vietnam massage is said to help with improving blood circulation and reduce the risk of blood clotting.
