Thai Massage Overview
Thai massage is believed to have been developed by Jivaka Kumarbhaccha, physician to Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago in India. It made its way to Thailand, where the Ayurvedic techniques and principles gradually became influenced by traditional Chinese medicine. For centuries, Thai massage was performed by monks as one component of Thai medicine.
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage and is also called Thai yoga massage because the therapist uses their hands, knees, legs and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work. Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment. People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing.
Thai massage is performed on a padded mat on the floor. No oil is applied and you are fully dressed and are asked to wear comfortable clothing to the massage.
Many people find that Thai massage has the following benefits: relaxes, reduces stress, improves circulation, increases energy, increases flexibility, improves range of motion and centers the mind and body.
