Thai Yoga Massage

History

The origin of Thai massage (also known as nuad boran) is linked to Jivaka Kumarabhaccha, a doctor from early Buddhist scriptures, who is honoured as the father of thai medicine. It may date back three to four thousand years. The Thai way of life and healing methods were closely connected with Buddhism and the sense of spirituality, as well as individual well being.

 

What is Thai yoga massage?

Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing system that uses energy lines and works on pressure points to restore your health. It combines acupressure, stretching and assisted yoga. Massage tables or oil aren’ t used, there is no rubbing or kneading of the skin and the muscles, and the receiver remains clothed. It’s allowing and encouraging the receiver to engage in the process of self-healing, deep relaxation and connection with ourselves, and renewal. It’s a healing art, not merely a physical therapy.
