About Thai

Thai Yoga massage has its roots in northern India, around the time that Buddha was alive, more than 2,500 years ago.

The founder of Thai Yoga massage is believed to be a man called Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, who was physician to the Maghada king Bimbisara.

It is not clear exactly how, when and in what form Thai Yoga Massage reached Thailand. It seems that it may have arrived in Thailand along with Buddhism around the 3rd or 2nd century BC. The origins of this therapy almost certainly lie in the traditional Indian system of healing.

Life energy
Thai Yoga Massage is based on an understanding of the Pranamaya Kosha or energy body, a system of 72,000 invisible energy lines. Treatments focus on the ten major energy lines called ten sen along which the body’s life energy circulates.

If there is a blockage in any line preventing the free flow of energy it can lead to aches, pain and disease on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. By working with these energy lines it is possible to treat the whole body, including the internal organs.

This therapy will insure that blocked energy is released, restoring health, harmony and balance.

The Spiritual Aspect
Thai Yoga Massage was traditionally practised in Buddhist temples and was an extension of Buddhist practice, particularly awareness and metta or loving-kindness. Due to this spiritual practice the client and the therapist are left feeling calm and peaceful.

For some time after a treatment, clients often experience continuous beneficial effects, especially a balanced mind, and a lighter, more flexible body.
