This art of therapeutic healing is handed down from generation to generation, from master to student. Authentic Thai massage can only be performed by individuals from the proper cultural and religious background. The practice can be dated back thousands of years, and is greatly valued by the Thai people. Formally, all medical doctors had to learn all the branches of Thai massage. Up to this day, it is still used in collaboration with traditional medicine.
Traditional Thai massage begins by the opening of energy channels. Consistent pressure is applied on the body’s reflexory areas, which will relieve muscle tension. Using a combination of reflexology and yoga stretches helps to achieve improved circulation.
Traditional Thai massage can be enjoyed either merely for it’s relaxing trait, or it can also be used as an alternative for physical and mental healing.
