History of Thai Massage
Thai Massage is a Buddhist therapeutic technique, dating back 2500 years. It is believed that Traditional Thai Massage (Thai Yoga Therapy) was first practiced by Jivaka Komarabhacca (Doctor Shivago), a personal physician and healer who had connections with the Buddha.
" Ancient Thai people believed that 'the absence of illness is a blessing'. In other words, illnesses can be avoided by maintaining health, balance and well-being."
This holistic approach includes a healthy diet, regular physical exercise, meditation and, importantly, Thai Massage.
Thai massage method uses point pressure, muscle stretching and compression, done in a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking unlike the scooping and continuous strokes of Western massage. These techniques passed down through the generations Thai massage techniques are not only using thumbs, fingers and hands to free tension from the recipient's body but involving with forearms, knees, elbows and the therapists feet as well.
Thai massage can be applied on a mat, floor or a special bed, the work is done fully clothed and no oils are required. Thai medical massage can move deeper into the mechanical functions of the body, working with deep muscle tension and joint mobility as well as nerves, muscles and ligament balancing. Ancient Medical texts were carved in stone in attempts to preserve the tradition of Thai massage; these stone inscriptions still sit within the walls of the Wat Pho temple in Bangkok.
