THAI MASSAGE BODYWORK
Thai massage is a unique modality, also known as Nuad Bo-Rarn, Thai Yoga Bodywork- Thai Yoga Massage or Lazy Man’s Yoga, this centuries old practice has its roots in Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Thai folk healing. Thai Massage occurs on a comfortable floor mat massage table for those who are unable to use the floor mat. The practitioner uses hands, thumbs, forearms, elbows, knees- and feet to stimulate meridians and pressure points throughout the body in a meditative, flowing rhythm. The recipient is guided into passive yoga postures linking breath with movement to stretch muscles, compress and decompress joints and increase range of motion. Whether or not you are a yoga practitioner- Thai Yoga Massage will leave you feeling deeply refreshed – relaxed with long lasting benefits.
Dr.Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha
For centuries, Thai massage was performed by monks as one component of Thai medicine. While the recorded history of Thai massage was lost during the war with Burmese in 1767, the surviving records are now inscribed in stone and can be found within the temple of Pra Chetuphon in Bangkok, known as Wat Po, the temple of the reclining Buddha. Its spiritual aspect also remains as teachers of the therapy begin classes with the practice of waikru, a series of prayers and recitations dedicated to Shivago Komarpaj, the father of Thai massage and the God of Healing, and
concentrates on applying pressure along 10 of the most important sen. In doing
this, it incorporates acupressure work with a series
of assisted yoga-like stretches, in which the practitioner uses his or her
hands, arms, legs, and feet to give the massage.
The body’s energy lines, also called “Sen” in Thai
, sustained pressure ensures that the Myofascial, or the muscle’s connective tissue, soften and relax to release the flow of energy along the sen, and to prepare the client for the large-scale stretches that follow.
