What is Thai Massage?
A. It is an ancient massage technique that is believed the personal
physician of Buddha developed over 2,500 years ago in India. It depends
on meridian channels throughout the body, which were charted by ancient
healers. Thai Massage consists of many aspects. For example, the
influence of the Ayurvedic medical tradition brings aspects that are similar
to yoga. Along with assisted yogic positions, other aspects of Thai
Massage include rocking, rhythmic muscle compression and stretching.
An aspect that reflects the influence of Traditional Chinese Medicine is
that the masseuse uses thumbs, elbows, palms, forearms, feet, and knees
to massage and apply pressure along the body’s energy meridians called
Sen-Lines. The therapists use of more angular body parts to apply
pressure to specific areas of the body is reminiscent of acupuncture. The
main purpose of Thai Massage is to create a state of harmony between
body, mind and spirit thus providing the foundation for self-healing. The
receiver of the massage lies on a floor mat, fully clothed. These are the
foremost differentiating factors between Thai Massage and western style
massages. The therapist uses acupressure points not only to relieve joints
and muscles of any tension, but also to release the healing energy from
the body’s meridians. Along with this, the masseuse uses gentle rocking
and rhythmic compressions to prepare and invite the body to stretch and
achieve yogic positions without triggering the body’s defense reactions.
