About Thai Massage

Based on the northern style of traditional Thai Massage (Nuad Boran), Thai Massage is a sacred healing treatment that integrates Yoga, Ayurveda (the Indian healing method that means “science of life”), and Buddhism. The first roots of this ancient system date back to over 2,500 years ago at the time of Buddha.

Some call it “the lazy man’s yoga,” because the receiver would get stretched and opened energetically without any of self effort. The idea is to open up the sen/energy lines throughout the body, which is based on the belief that illnesses occur when blockages are present. It is suitable for people who enjoy deeper pressure in massage, but it can be adjusted accordingly.

Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions and is performed on a floor mat with clothing on. The giver would rhythmically compress, press and stretch the receiver's body by using fingers, hands, forearms, elbows, knees and/or feet. The receiver would be positioned in a variety of yoga- like positions throughout the massage.
