The History of Thai Massage

Traditional MassageThai Massage and Thai Medicine are said to have been founded but the legendary Shivago Komarpaj, a physician from over 2500 years ago. He was from northern India and said to be a friend and personal physician of the Buddha.He also worked with the Magadha King Bimbasara and the Buddhist nuns and monks called the Sangha.

Though there are a combination of influences for Thai medicine from Chinese, Indian and Southeast Asian culture credit is giving mostly to Mr. Komarpaj. Most of the recorded history of Thai massage was lost in 1767 during the Burmese attack in Ayutthia. There were records that survived and were inscribed in the Sala Moh Nuat, a massage pavilion in Bangkok.

Following World War II, Thailand became a popular place for tourists, making Thai massages a world known technique.

Thai Massage is one of the four branches of Traditional Thai medicine. It is a healing technique that was practiced before doctors. The massage involves deep massage and stretching and it happens on the floor on a firm mattress or a mat.

It is a therapeutic procedure that provides relaxation and restores healthy blood circulation. It also treats energy blockages, weak, dysfunctional organs, aches and pains, stress and tension, flexibility, paralysis, nerve problems and postural alignments.

Thai massage differs from traditional massage by its use of body's energy line system, known as Sen lines. There is a basic theory that there are seventy-two thousand Sen lines that are also called energy lines that line the frame of the physical body. The sen lines corresponds with the Chinese acupuncture medications and the ancient medicine practice from Indian Ayurvedic.

A session typically last around two hours or maybe more and the massage works to stretch the entire body. The massage may include the pulling of toes, fingers and ears.

Thai Massage is ideal for everyone as the sessions are customized for each individual with their body type and age.
