What is traditional Thai massage?

Thai massage – keeps your body in good shape
Is a traditional treatment for relieving stress and tension, and for the treatment of back pain, stiff neck, shoulder pain, and sports injuries including muscle and tendon strain

Benefits of full body massage include:

  • Alleviation of physical and emotional tension.
  • Release and relaxation of muscles and improved flexibility.
  • Relief from general muscular aches and pains.
  • Muscolo-skeletal realignment.
  • Improves circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system

Traditional Thai massage is a combination of acupressure, reflexology and yogic exercises, or gentle stretching, which manipulates the energy lines and so diminishes tension, stimulates metabolism and creates a feeling of wellbeing and vitality. Unlike some other therapies, you will feel refreshed and energized after a Thai massage, rather than sedated and lethargic.

Traditional Thai massage is a treatment sequence of different pressure techniques, especially body postures and stretching exercises, which are being coordinated with breathing. Postures and movements are in large part derived from the meditations of Buddhism. It is from here, that traditional Thai massage draws significant parts of its origins and could therefore be considered a “complete meditation”. Our life energy flows, according to this philosophy, through us in channels, the so-called “sen”. If these channels are blocked, it will often lead to problems like pain, tension and tiredness. Treatment will open these blocked channels, restore energy flow of the body and activate the central nervous system, as well as the blood circulation. One feels distinctly relaxed and energetic, with a raised feeling of well-being. Bodily relaxation is a precondition for the mind and soul being well balanced. This sharpens our consciousness and improves the ability to concentrate in a natural way. A full standard treatment requires 11/2 hours of time. The exertion of pressure is firm but pleasant. If blockages are found, then the pressure will be accordingly adjusted.

Origin
Traditional Thai massage is part of the ancient art of Thai healing. This art of healing came from India to Thailand more than 2500 years ago. Therefore, the beginnings of traditional Thai massage are found in yoga, the ayurvedic medicine and in spiritual applications from Buddhism. The earliest descriptions of such treatments are found in the Pali verses of the Theravada Buddhism. The founder of traditional Thai massage was Dr. Shivago Komarpay, also called Kumar Bhaccha. He was a doctor and a friend of the Buddha. At the Institute in Chiang Mai founded by Dr. Shivago Komarpay, every massage is still begun with a Pali prayer, the “wai kru”, requesting to be blessed. Since then the traditional Thai massage is being continuously further developed and improved upon by a multitude of users. Massage owns the extraordinary virtue to take care of body and mind, offering the possibility of curing many of those imbalances, that deprive us from daily peace, like depression, tension, fatigue, insomnia and stress.

Many techniques of massage exist to secure the wished objective, that it is the well-being of our body and organism. We chose the Thai massage for this aim. After spending long seasons in Asia, specifically in Thailand, where we practiced yoga, and enjoyed this very amiable and relaxed culture; learning the previously mentioned techniques, to ensure the health and balance that are so much needed by our bodies..
