History of Traditional Thai Massage

history Traditional Thai Massage, also called Thai Yoga Therapy, Nuad      Phaen Boran or Nuat Thai, is a therapeutic technique that dates  back  thousands of years. Its precise origins are unknown, but  practitioners  traditionally trace their lineage to  Jivaka  Komarabhacca, also known  as Shivago, who was a personal  physician to the Sangha, a friend and  physician to the Buddha and renowned as a healer in Buddhist tradition

 Traditional Thai medicine is a natural, holistic approach to health and  well-being, developed over thousands of years, which includes  proper  
 nutrition, physical exercise, the use of medicinal herbs and therapeutic  massage. Traditional Thai medicine is not only concerned with curing diseases and ailments: its primary goal is maintaining health and well-being, as ancient Thais believed that "the absence of illness is the best blessing". The medical knowledge developed by Thai people  through many generations has come to be known as the ancient wisdom of Thailand. 

Diagrams inscribed on the walls at the temple of Wat Po in Bangkok illustrate one of the fundamental principles of  traditional Thai medicine: that energy flows through the body along ten major channels, or sen lines. If an obstruction occurs in any of these channels it is believed that pain or disease results. In this sense, traditional Thai medicine is similar to many other ancient healing systems, which believe that illnesses are caused by an imbalance or obstruction within the individual, or by an imbalance between an individual and their environment. 

Ancient Thais treated a number of ailments by using massage to restore the flow of energy throughout the body. Traditional Thai massage is a deep, full-body treatment, which includes both stretching of the joints and muscles and applied pressure to the sen lines.
