Ancient Massage, or Thai Massage as it is commonly called today, is one of
the worlds oldest healing institutions. It began in India and found its roots in
medicine as part of an ascetically based religious movement, a portion of which became
know as Buddhism.
As Buddhism spread out from India,
this healing medicine spread with it. Early in its history it found its way to Southeast
Asia and eventually to Thailand. For centuries, Thai monks performed the art of massage as
one element of Thai medicine. The Thai people saw illness as an imbalance between the
Body, the Mind, and the Spirit and often would seek help at the local temple and the rest,
as we say, is history....
Thai Massage Technique
Thai Massage is a technique used to give
one a new life experience. It works on the so called energy lines that run
throughout the human body. As opposed to traditional Chinese medicine, which uses
acupuncture to manipulate the pressure points, Thai Massage stimulates these points with a
healing touch. As a result, these points endure less stress, allowing ones life
energy to freely circulate throughout the body.
In addition to the
life energy aspects, Thai Massage also works on the physical body. Joints are loosened and
muscles are stretched from the feet to the head. This combination of energetic and
physical aspects is unique to Thai Massage, and so are its effects!
