What is traditional massage?
Vietnamese traditional massage is a combination of clapping and punching techniques. These actions will apply pressure to the affected muscles and aid in pain relief. A crucial step in increasing the circulation required to remove toxins from your body is pressing the energy points. The first application of this therapy was for medicinal purposes.
The doctors apply pressure to muscle and energy points with their deft fingertips. Blind people have been educated to massage for a century. The energy patches that our eyes cannot see can be “seen” by their hands. It has since been improved and is now widely used for amusement.
Here we’ve compiled the 3 most popular traditional massages:
The deep tissue, whole-body Vietnamese Tam Quat Massage integrates Thai, Japanese, and even Swedish massage techniques in addition to ideas from Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese therapies. During a session, oils and lotions may be applied.
Tam Quat focuses on body warmth and blood circulation stimulation through the use of several clapping and punching techniques (percussions) on the body, which provides the typical noises of a Tam Quat session. Other methods used include broad, continuous hand pressure, acupressure utilizing the thumbs, fingers, and knuckles on Qi acupoints, and a variety of stretches.
Tam Quat massages soothe tension in the muscles and tendons as well as general aches and pains. They also stimulate the lymphatic and digestive systems, which remove waste from the body (detoxification).
Giac hoi – Cupping
Local suction is produced on the skin during cupping therapy, sometimes referred to as cupping massage, which is a form of traditional medicine. To raise the skin and top muscle layers, little cups or pots made of glass, bamboo, bronze, buffalo horn, copper, or these days, plastic are placed on the skin.
The fundamental theory behind cupping is that it increases blood and lymph circulation to heal skin conditions, colds, respiratory conditions including pneumonia and bronchitis, and aches by boosting the immunological and neurological systems as well as easing tight muscles.
- Fire Cupping
When using fire cupping, the cup is heated from the inside out with a flame in order to burn off the oxygen and produce a vacuum. It is swiftly applied to the skin to induce suction of the superficial muscle layers and skin tissue.
Sometimes, massage oil is used to create a better seal as well as to help the cups glide over the body’s muscle groups when massaging. Other names for this include “gliding” and “sliding cupping.”
- Dry Cupping
The only difference between Dry Cupping and Fire Cupping is that no flame or other heat source is used. Usually, a pumping mechanism is used to create a vacuum. Sliding and gliding techniques can be used in conjunction with dry cup massage.
Cao gio – Coining
Vietnamese ethnomedicine known as Cao Gio has been used for thousands of years. According to Vietnamese mythology, all bodily aches and disorders are caused by the “wind” in the blood.
The word “Cao Gio” is Vietnamese which is translated into English as “Catch the breeze.” The wind in this illustration stands for the “evil wind” that has entered the blood, which is removed from the body by the Cao Gio therapy. That is Cao Gio’s trade secret for healing.
It has its own quirks and individuality despite sharing a great deal with Chinese Gua Sha. Gua Sha and Cao Gio are frequently compared. Although they preserve regional or localized peculiarities, they are a part of the collective stock of historic traditional and ethnic medicines from the Southeast.
The skin is scraped in a certain way during this procedure. The scraping sends a nasty blood wind just below the skin’s surface. From there, it escapes via the skin-scraping routes (bruises caused by abrasion).
The only tool used in Cao Gio for dermabrasion (scraping of skin) is a coin; as a result, the procedure is also known as “coining.” Any readily available coin is utilized. The only prerequisite is that the edges be smooth to avoid flesh wounds.
