What is Thai Massage?

Thai yoga massage, also simply called Thai massage, is a 2,500-year-old Ayurvedic-based body science developed and popularized by Buddha’s doctor, Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha. A trained Thai Yoga massage therapist stretches a person with specific, assisted yoga poses. The philosophy behind Thai yoga massage techniques focuses on energy points called “sen.” As the Thai massage therapist stretches the participant, she also presses and massages along the sen lines or points.

Thai massage therapy acts as an external stimulant to produce specific internal effects. The massage is performed on the floor on a Thai massage mat, instead of a table. Thai massage aligns the energies of the body using gentle pressure on specific points. Thai massage techniques also includes compression and stretches.

Thai massage is like yoga only you do not have to do any of the work – the therapist is the one moving and stretching you into a sequence of postures. This particular massage is more energizing than other forms of massage. It also reduces stress and improves flexibility and range of motion.
