Traditional Thai Yoga Massage, also known as Nuad Boran (ancient massage)
The Story of Traditional Thai Massage: The founding father of Thai massage is an Ayurvedic doctor named Jivaka Kumar Bhacca, who is revered to this day throughout Thailand as the Father of Medicine. Born in India during the time of the Buddha, he is mentioned in a variety of ancient documents and oral history for his extraordinary medical skills, his knowledge of herbal medicine, and for having treated important people of his day, including the Buddha himself. Nuad Boran was brought to Thailand where it blended it’s Buddhist and Ayurvedic roots with Chinese and indigenous culture.
Thai Massage incorporates elements of mindfulness, gentle rocking, deep stretching, and rhythmic compressions to open up energy channels, ground and release deep and superficial tension, increase flexibility, and restore harmony.
Thai Massage is performed on a mat on the floor with the client wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. I use my palms, fingers, elbows, forearms, knees and feet to create a flowing dance of movement while you, the client, remain relaxed and passive. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and overall well being.
