Thai massage has 2,500 years of history based on traditional methods of health in Thailand. It is said that it was founded by the person named Master Shibago who was Buddha’s physician in charge. (Master Shibago is very respected as an initiator of Thai traditional massage in Thailand. ) Because of that history, Traditional Thai massage is steeped in Buddhism, and massage techniques have been taught at temples. It takes root deeply in people’s lives, and there are many massage operations in towns now.
The key feature of Thai massage is to stimulate ‘Sen’ that is the line of the energy running through the human body (It is called Phurana in Thailand). As a result, the nerves and the blood vessels surrounding the Sen are stimulated and promote the stream of blood. In addition the lymphocytes are activated. Moreover it leades to improved immunity and a natural healing ability.
Thai traditional massage is known as ” Yoga by two people”. It is because there is a good effect of health for not only the receiver but also for the therapist. Normally the therapist should be in the same posture for a long time and becomes tired. But as for Thai traditional massage, the therapist will change posture by the place of massage, and it is similar to stretching and doing Yoga. Thai traditional massage has techniques including stretching, finger pressure (shiatsu), and chiropractic, etc.
Thai traditional massage is roughly separated into two styles: Bangkok style and Chiang Mai style. In this school we teach Bangkok style. The reason for it is because Chiang Mai style is not safe if performed by those in immature stage, and dangerous to massage the elderly person and those who have a stiff body. Chiang Mai style is also has physical burden for the therapist. Most of the massage operations offer Bangkok style in Thailand. It is said the Bangkok style is most practical massage.
