About Thai Massage therapy
Thai massage is among the world’s oldest healing arts with roots tracing back more than 2,500 years. The foundation of this spiritual practice is based on the ideology that a network of invisible energy lines, the Prana Nadis, runs throughout the body. Thai massage targets 10 of these energy lines on which there are especially important pressure points. By massaging and stretching these specific areas, early adopters were able to treat a range of diseases and relieve pain.
Though Buddhist monks traditionally performed Thai massage for curative purposes, the combination of pressure point therapy and yoga-like stretching has become a relaxing, therapeutic way to relieve tension and fortify the connection between the body and mind. By stimulating lymphatic function, Thai massage can also be used as a tool to detoxify the body, strengthen the immune system, and prevent injury by increasing flexibility.
