Traditional Thai Massage From Temple Art to Healing Art
Thai Yoga Massage is a rolfing and acupressure, tapotement and chiropractic, reiki and deep compression work, myofascial release and hydrotherapy with herbs and the power of spirit all rolled into one. Thai Yoga Massage is not a new brand of Ayurvedic medicine or a twist on Chinese meridian, it's seriously Thai and it's serious medicine.
The origins of traditional Thai massage can be traced back 2,500 years to India and the spread of Buddhism. The founding father of Thai massge, Jivaka Kumarbhaccha (Khommapaj) was a celebrated yogi and a doctor in the ancient Indian healing tradition of Ayurveda. His unusual skill as a physician and surgeon was so well known that was called upon to treat kings and princes. But of all the people Jivaka attended to, the most distinguished was the Buddha. Today, Jivak is not only verated as teh founder of traditional Thai massage; he is also honored as the souce of Ayurvedic practices within Thailand.
Thai massage has its roots in Buddhism, Thailand’s national religion, and was influenced by the ancient Indian Ayurveda integrated with Chinese practices.
Traditional Thai massage is based on pressure points along ten key energy lines of the body, which power all physical, mental and emotional processes. If there is an energy imbalance, the body’s harmony is disrupted, causing pain and disease. Massaging along these key energy lines can break energy blockage, stimulate the circulation and restore general well-being. In this form of massage, the recipient is fully-clothed, in a loose-fitting top and pants. Massage oil is not used. The massage is done on a mat and the massage therapist employs a variety of yoga stretches to improve range of motion and deep-pressure massage to stimulate circulation.
THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE:
ROYAL THAI MASSAGE was used in the Royal Palace. It is a Thai healing art and in the past was used only with the king and his relatives. The masseur or masseuse uses strong finger tips to apply deep pressure along key energy lines. Some may find this a bit intense but it provides the most therapeutic benefit to treat muscle tension and is very relaxing afterward.
THAI FOLK MASSAGE has been used between Thai people for a thousand years. Hands, palms, elbows, knees and feet are used with bending and stretching in yoga postures.
We combine the best of royal Thai massage and Thai folk massage in a traditional Thai massage and philosophy. For the complete Thai massage experience we recommended to request a 2 hour session, combining traditional Thai massage and Thai foot reflexology.
