Thai massage is included among the four branches of traditional medicine in Thailand. The rest are are: herbs, nutrition, spiritual practices. A native of India, Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, was the main physician to Buddha more than 2,500 years ago and probably developed Thai manual medicine, or massage. Traditional Thai medicine represents an interweaving of ancient Indian and Chinese medical practices and philosophies. Practitioners of the traditional Thai medicine utilize slow, rhythmic presses and deep compression designed to tonify the body and mind, and eliminate metabolic waste. Slow, Yoga-like, controlled assisted stretching helps to maximize the body’s response and move energy effectively through the body.
