WHAT IS THAI MASSAGE?
The healing art of Thai massage, traditionally known as Nuad Boran, evolved over 2,000 years ago in present day Thailand and is a system of bodywork combining rhythmic massage compression along the body, acupressure, and energy balancing techniques. The founder of Thai massage is an Ayurvedic doctor named Jivaka Kumar Bhacca, who is revered throughout Thailand as the Father of Medicine for his knowledge of the body and for having treated important people of his time, including the Buddha.
Traditional Thai massage is rooted in the belief that life is sustained by a vital force carried along invisible pathways (sen) running through the body. It is believed that disease and dysfunction come when blockages occur along these pathways. Accordingly, Thai Massage’s intent is to free blocked energy, stimulate the natural flow of life-force, and restore balance. The result of a full-body Thai massage is often a relaxing yet deep mind/body experience, bringing a greater state of physical and mental balance. For the practitioner, a Thai Massage session can be a powerful tool for personal, physical and spiritual maintenance and transformation.
