Thai Massage is an ancient technique based on the studies of Dr. Shivago, who was a doctor of Buddha, and was at first an exclusive massage for monks and Thai royalty.
Thai Massage is also known as Nuad Bo Rarn. This ancient therapy comes from the time of the Buddha about 2500 years ago. It is part of traditional Thai medicine and is used to treat various types of ailments. To achieve this, it aims to unlock the 10 most important Sen lines or energy lines of the body.
As we have mentioned, Dr. Shivago was its founder and we thank him before and after each session, for this valuable jewel. Of Hindu origin, he moved to Thailand where he continued training in medicine, anatomy, meditation, breathing and phytotherapy. From this multidisciplinary combination, the Thai Massage was born.
In the West, when we talk about Thai Massage, most people have only two ideas in mind:
- The first is that it is an erotic massage. But in reality, apart from being a complete therapeutic treatment, the recipient is all dressed in comfortable and baggy clothes. Nor is any type of oil used.
- The second is that it is a painful massage where the massage therapist walks heavily on the patient’s back. This belief is also wrong. For acupressure in this type of massage, in addition to the hands, elbows, knees and feet are used, but always taking into account muscle tone and the degree of resistance to pain of the recipient. Stretches are always exercised according to the elasticity in the user’s joints.
Therefore, Thai Massage is a very technical, precise and therapeutic type of massage where you work with a series of sequences. In them the therapist exerts a combination of pressures on the muscles, points and Sen lines (energy lines), which are also combined with joint mobilizations, stretching and reflex stimulations.
The intensity of the pressure depends on the level of pain of the recipient and their muscle tone.
These passive stretches and static pressures are performed throughout the body, precisely, for which the therapist uses his hands, fingers, elbows, forearms, knees and feet. All this is exercised with the therapist’s body weight, rhythmically and in a coordinate manner with the breathing of both.
We work with the circulatory systems and, especially, with the blood and lymphatic.
Despite what it might seem in the description, it is not a painful massage but quite the opposite: it is a very relaxing therapy. After a session you will feel as if you have a new body, without tensions, more agile and as if you are rejuvenating.
