Thai massage uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension, and bring energy balance to the body’s systems. Thai massage is deeply relaxing and invigorating.
The healing art known as Nuada Boran began to develop more than two thousand years ago in present day Thailand. What is now called Thai massage is an ancient healing system that combines acupressure and energy balancing techniques, Indian Ayurvedic principles and assisted yoga. The founder of Thai massage is an Ayurvedic doctor named Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, who is still revered throughout Thailand as the father of medicine.
