A Thai massage is known to be one that will leave the client experiencing a noticeable relief from stress and feelings of anxiety as the therapist uses pressure points on the body, combined with stretching the muscles and compression using the palm of the hand to loosen the limbs and relax tension and thereby helping with joint flexibility and mobility, encouraging the flow of energy through the body. The deep understanding by the Thai practitioners means that she can intuitively sense the depth of pressure to be used and for how long to sustain it. For the more intense Thai massage, the practitioner will use her body weight as she works to release muscle tension, especially where there is an area that is especially taut. This method focuses the pressure, whilst the masseuse remains closely aware of the level of pressure suitable for the client. Clients describe it as an energising treatment that also gives a sense of balance.
The ancient and revered tradition of Thai massage is said to have originated from the teachings and practices of Shivago Komarpaj who was physician to the Buddha. These principles have remained for over 2500 years and are inscribed on stone built into the walls of the Wat Pho Temple in Bangkok, which up until today remains the centre for Thai massage and medicine. Over the centuries Thai Massage is thought likely to have absorbed additions from the surrounding countries such as India, China and other South Asian cultures.
