Welcome
to Traditional Thai Touch

 

 

This is not a massage what you have experienced before. You will go on an Internal journey to deep relaxation and find your balance of mind and body again.

 

Traditional Thai Massage is performed on the floor in loose and comfortable clothing. When one receives Traditional Thai Massage one is also receiving the benefits of the practice of Yoga. We can call this practice assisted yoga. Traditional Thai Massage also incorporates martial arts moves, rhytmic movement, palming and thumbing along energy lines, stretching and breathing. This rhytmic movement, breathing, gentle stretching creates a slow "dance" between the practitioner and the reciever. Further more to stretching and tonifying the muscles, Thai Yoga Massage improves circulation, decrease muscular tension and spasm, assists metabolism and immune system. Balances the body energetically generating a calm mental state.

Practitioners incorporate their palms, thumbs, forearms, knees and feet during sessions for muscle compression, joint mobilisation, and acupressure.

Traditional Thai touch Experience

From Buddhist temple art to Healing art

Thai Yoga Massage present the reciever with a physical and an energetic massage. In Thailand Traditional Thai Massage is considered to be energy work other then body work. This is because the therapist is not following the anatomical structures or physiological principals but by following a sophisticated network of 72,000 Sen (Thai word meaning "pathway or line") lines. Stimulating acupressure points along these lines affects the recipient's body's energy (lom) relaxing the mind and the body so the natural healing process can occur. Clinical trials have shown that Traditional Thai Massage can aid many problems in the body caused by modern living conditions ( www.thai-institute.net )

The history of Traditional Thai massage can be traced back 2500 years to India and the spread of Buddhism in South East Asia. The founding father of Thai massage Jivaka Kumarbhaccha was a doctor and yogi in ancient India. He was a skillful and unusual physician and was well known to treat kings and princes. But of all the people Jivaka attended to, the most distinguished one was the Buddha himself. Traditional Thai Massage developed over centuries in Buddhist temples. The temple or "Wat" functions as a center for the health of the common people. The most famous is in Bangkok the "Wat Po" temple still today is the leading center of research and practice for the art of Thai Massage. There are two general styles in practicing Thai Massage: the northern school and the southern school. Chang Mai became the capital of the teaching of the northern style of Thai Massage and in Bangkok Wat Po temple is the leading in the teaching of the southern style of Thai Massage. The main difference is how the two schools work with the energy lines in the body. The northern style is more "Yang" approach more active. While the southern style is more "Yin" approach focusing on stimulation of nerves along the Sen lines.
