Thai Treatment History

Thai massage is believed to have been developed by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, physician to Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago in India.  It made its way to Thailand, where the Ayurvedic techniques and principles gradually became influenced by traditional Chinese medicine.

Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Many people find that Thai massage has the following benefits, it:

  • relaxes
  • reduces stress
  • improves circulation
  • increases energy
  • increases flexibility
  • improves range of motion
  • centers the mind and body

Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment.

Chakra stones are also used in some treatments.  This In Sanskrit chakra means “wheel,” and those who can see them describe chakras as spinning wheels of light.  They are found in the aura, an electromagnetic force field which surrounds every living being.  The energy of the aura is that of our thoughts and feelings, and the chakras concentrate and coordinate the flow of these energies in and from the physical body.  It’s believed that illness first manifests in the realm of thought and feelings. Stress is an excellent example. The mind says, “I’m doing too much; I’m under pressure.”  This message translates into the emotional feeling of being burdened.  On both levels resistance creates energetic blockages, as the mind and emotions try to close up against what is perceived as a negative experience.If the mind and emotions continue to create resistance the blockage will eventually assume physical proportions, lodging in whichever physical area is most vulnerable.The purpose of chakra balancing is to dissolve blockages before they become physical (although it can also be helpful with physical conditions).  Crystals, being symmetrical in their molecular structure, radiate energy in a consistent and steady manner.  When they’re used in chakra balancing they can help to re-establish a healing, creative flow.


Thai Treatments

Thai oil massage
This is a very popular choice of massage using Ayurvedic Dosha oils.  Thai massage is a deep rhythmic massage along the major meridians and marma points.  The massage works on blocked meridians with firm pressure with a view to unblock the meridian channels and restore the Ki flow.  The massage can be performed either on the massage couch or on a traditional Thai mat.Thai foot massage
This is a fantastic treatment which offers much more than just a foot massage.  The body’s meridian system is treated from the feet to the back and scalp using a Thai foot stick and ginger foot massage cream. This is great for tired and achy feet, and a sluggish lymphatic system.Hot poultice massage
A massage with a difference!  This massage uses hot herb poultices with Prai, ginger, turmeric and lemongrass.  These poultices together with heat is great for stress relief, circulatory problems and for general aches and pains.Shirodhara
A truly relaxing treatment to treat stress, anxiety, head aches, migraines and tension.  A marma point massage is given to the feet, and this is followed by a warm coconut oil descending onto the third eye for 10 mins, with a scalp and face marma point massage.  This treatment finishes with crystals placed on the body’s chakras to heal and balance energy.
