What is Thai Massage?

The origins of Thai Massage can be traced back over 2,500 years to Chiwaka Komaraphat, the personal physician to Buddha and a revered healer of his time. Over the centuries, Thai Massage has developed taking influences from Indian, Chinese and southeast Asian cultures to what it is today, a world-renowned treatment. Thai Massage was recently added to UNESCO’s Cultural Heritage of Humanity list.

Traditional Thai massage involves assisted yoga-like stretches, combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures along the ‘sen’ lines of the body. As well as hands, the therapist may use their legs, feet and elbows to position the body and apply compression.

Whilst a traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions, a variety of other common massages exist in Thailand which use a combination of Thai and western massage techniques such as a Thai Hot Oil massage.
