Thai Yoga Massage
Traditional Thai Massage, also known as Nuad Boran, is an ancient energy-based healing. Thai Yoga Massage combines assisted yoga postures, acupressure, and reflexology.
Nuad Boran evolved in Thailand over 2,000 years ago and has a strong influence for Indian Ayurvedic medicine. The founding father of Thai massage, an Ayurvedic doctor named Jivaka Kumar Bhacca, was known in Thailand as the Father of Medicine. Traditional Thai Massage is based on a series of energy pathways and acupressure points that are similar to the Nadis that are the basis of Ayurvedic medicine. There are over 72,000 energy channels in the body which connect treatment points. They can be treated by manipulation or meditation to clear the channel and bring about healing. There are 10 major Sen lines that are treated during a Thai Yoga massage to promote healing and balance in the body.
What to Expect During a Session
Unlike western massage, a Thai massage is carried out on a floor mat where the client wears loose comfortable clothing and no oils or lotions are used. The practitioner is in constant contact with the client during the session by moving the body slowly by rocking and compressing the Sen lines to release energy blocks. The practitioner will use the palms of the hands, thumbs, elbows, knees, feet, and toes to create a dance of movement on the client’s body, which is completely relaxed. Through this method, energy blockages are released and the mind and body is balanced. Gradual pressure and deep stretching postures are used to get the desired effect. A frequently asked question is “do I have to be flexible?” The answer is NO the practitioner will work within your limits during the session.
