What is Traditional Thai Massage?

It is an ancient massage technique that is believed the personal physician of Buddha developed over 2,500 years ago in India. It depends on meridian channels throughout the body, which were charted by ancient healers. Thai Massage consists of many aspects. For example, the influence of the Ayurvedic medical tradition brings aspects that are similar to yoga. Along with assisted yogic positions, other aspects of Thai Massage include rocking, rhythmic muscle compression and stretching. An aspect that reflects the influence of Traditional Chinese Medicine is that the masseuse uses thumbs, elbows, palms, forearms, feet, and knees to massage and apply pressure along the body’s energy meridians called Sen-Lines. The therapists use of more angular body parts to apply pressure to specific areas of the body is reminiscent of acupuncture. The main purpose of Thai Massage is to create a state of harmony between body, mind and spirit thus providing the foundation for self-healing. The receiver of the massage lies on a floor mat, fully clothed. These are the foremost differentiating factors between Thai Massage and western style massages. The therapist uses acupressure points not only to relieve joints and muscles of any tension, but also to release the healing energy from the body’s meridians. Along with this, the masseuse uses gentle rocking and rhythmic compressions to prepare and invite the body to stretch and achieve yogic positions without triggering the body’s defense reactions.
