Help with Long Covid Syndrome

Long-Covid, also called Post-Covid, is a syndrome that can occur after suffering from Covid-19. All kinds of symptoms that occur later than the infection, which lasts up to four weeks, are currently referred to as long-covid late or long-term consequences.

Since the topic is still young, there are no standard definitions. For many symptoms, the causes cannot be explained or only insufficiently. A cure is so far not possible with the means of conventional medicine and pharmacology. Currently, the only medical option that can be offered is the determination and control of the symptoms.

Symptoms of Long Covid

Long-Covid names a variety of different symptoms. People may have single symptoms or multiple symptoms at the same time. The following symptoms are most common:

  • Memory disorders, difficulty concentrating
  • Attack-like concentration disorders
  • rapid and increased fatigue after physical or mental exertion
  • Fatigue: listlessness, persistent tiredness, exhaustion
  • headache
  • Muscle fatigue
  • chronic throat irritation
  • persistent feeling of breathlessness
  • Chest pain
  • Body aches

 Traditional Thai Medicine

From the perspective of Traditional Thai Medicine (TTM) the body is symptom-free when the four elements earth, fire, water and wind are in harmony. If the elements are balanced, the body's own healing powers can work efficiently and powerfully. Glands and organs are detoxified and re-supplied, the lymphatic system, the immune system, the digestive system and the nervous systems are strengthened. The more or less good harmony of the four elements is expressed directly in our well-being.

In the case of Covid-19, a viral infection puts a strain on the body. The immune system does not yet know the virus and has to learn. The immune system can then react late (sometimes overreacting) and fight the virus. Symptoms of infection appear. In addition to the possible direct damage caused by the virus, an overreacting immune defense can also lead to damage in the body.

From a traditional point of view, it is therefore important to intensively support the balance of the elements so that our body's own healing powers are as strong as possible. Normally we do this intuitively, by sleeping more, having a desire for other foods, drinking more or less, increasing or decreasing our physical activity, dressing in warmer or cooler clothes, etc. A strong active influence on the balance of the elements can be produced by acupressure along the energy lines . The massage techniques of Traditional Thai Medicine always work with acupressure on the energy lines, called "Sen". This treatment method influences the wind element intensively and quickly, whereupon the other elements readjust, strengthen or weaken themselves accordingly. The balance is optimized, the body can detoxify itself again,care and heal.

How useful are Traditional Thai Massages at Long-Covid?

Traditional Thai medicine and the area of massages and herbal treatments are empirical methods. This means that you apply what has helped effectively over the centuries. Without diagnosis and without having to know what and why exactly helped something.

Therapeutic Thai massage techniques, which have been developed and used over hundreds of years, coincide with many of the Long-Covid symptoms mentioned above. The holistic application is central, which also includes the causes and not just the symptoms. There are opportunities for lasting relief, which are usually absent with the focus solely on combating symptoms.

It remains to seize the opportunities and use them. If you suffer from long-covid symptoms, the following traditional methods could be helpful additions to the medical offers.
