First introduced by Indian origin doctor to Thailand and known as 'Nuad Phaen Boran' which translates into Traditional Massage or Ancient Massage. Now its widely known as Thai Massage and considered as medieval art of body therapy for healing, and transformation.
Thai massage has been performed by monks in Southeast Asia as element of Thai medicine from centuries. In traditional oriental medicine, illness is referred as imbalance of the body, mind, and spirit or 'chi'.
The concept of Thai massage is based on invisible energy lines known as 'Prana Nadis' running through human body which supplies vital energy. The life energy or 'Prana' is through the air we breathe and the food we eat. Possible disturbances in the flow of energy results insufficient supply of Prana, which leads to sickness.
Thai massage is based on selection of ten energy mainlines on important acupressure points. Furthermore these energy mainlines are focused by breaking blockades, stimulates flow of Prana, and restore general well-being.
How does it work?
This massage therapy is focused on interactive manipulation by using two primary procedures: applying gentle pressure with hands & feet along the energy lines and array of passive stretching movements to manipulate the body into a succession of postures. These movements help regulate the energies of the body.
Thai massage is quite different from traditional massage where muscle knead, varied length strokes and pressure is utilized to stimulate, calm or relax. It's more efficient with energy body rather than physical body and established on a gentle but vigorous pressure, pressing energy points with ample stretching.
