History of Thai massages
Massage is one of the oldest forms of therapy that almost every culture knows. The oldest extant writings that mention the massage come from ancient Egypt and China. In the canon of Nei Thing Sou Wen, which dates back to 3 700 BC, the use of acupuncture and acupressure is discussed. The massage is also discussed in Confucius’ writings. The art of massage was also discovered by the Persians, Babylonians or Assyrians. Even the ancient Greeks and Romans did not do without massages; body culture and hygiene were relatively high in this era.
Thai massage has been practiced almost unchanged for more than two thousand years. The founder is a close friend and doctor of Yivaka. His healing methods, complemented by traditional Chinese medicine and ancient Indian Ayurveda, were developed by Buddhist monks in Thai temples. It was the contact with world medicine that influenced the character of Thai massages from ancient times to the present day.
Thai massage is based on the healing theory of internal energy paths called Dream, through which we supply our own body with life energy. Through gentle extrusion of energy centers and stretching, the energy moves into the whole body.
Thai massage relieves pain and relieves stress. It is also often used as a regular prevention and health protection. It releases tension, strengthens the nervous system, calms the mind and creates a sense of harmony. Thai massages restore the inner balance of the whole body.
Thai massage uses gentle pressure and stretching techniques to relax the whole body. This is an ancient healing practice that originated in India. It dates back to around 2,500–7,000 years ago.
The technique that Thai massage practitioners use is very different from what people in the West may be accustomed to. Unlike Swedish or shiatsu massage techniques, in which a person passively lies on a bed, the client lies on the floor and participates more actively in the massage.
