HISTORY

Thai massage differs from traditional massage by its use of body's energy line system, known as Sen lines. There is a basic theory that there are seventy-two thousand Sen lines that are also called energy lines that line the frame of the physical body. The sen lines corresponds with the Chinese acupuncture medications and the ancient medicine practice from Indian Ayurvedic. A session typically last around one to two hours and the massage works to stretch the entire body. The massage may include the pulling of toes, fingers and ears. Thai Massage is ideal for everyone as the sessions are customized for each individual with their body type and age

The healing art known as Nuad Boran (ancient massage) began to evolve well over two thousand years ago in present day Thailand. What is today called Thai Massage or Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing system combining acupressure and energy balancing techniques, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures.

Traditional Thai massage has begun to spread outside of Thailand and into the West. In many cases it has been represented based on Thai tradition, with intention and techniques befitting traditional Thai healing.

 

In other cases, and especially in recent years, it has been hybridized and fused with other types of therapies, primarily from the West. While there is value in adapting traditional techniques to modern therapies in order to gain wider recognition, the strength of Thai massage lies in its timed-honoured history and evolution. Performed within traditional Thai parameters, a properly-administered Thai massage session can be a powerful tool for personal, physical and spiritual maintenance and transformation
