History

  The founder of Thai massage and medicine is said to have been Shivago Komarpaj, who is said in the Buddhist canon to have been the Buddha's physician over 2,500 years ago. He is noted in ancient documents for his extraordinary medical skills, his knowledge of herbal medicine, and for having treated important people of his day, including the Buddha himself.  In fact, the history of Thai massage is more complex than this legend of a single founder would suggest. Thai massage, like Thai traditional medicine (TTM) more generally, is a combination of influences from Indian, Chinese, South east Asian cultural spheres, and traditions of medicine, and the art as it is practised today is likely to be the product of a 19th-century synthesis of various healing traditions from all over the kingdom. Even today, there is considerable variation from region to region across Thailand, and no single routine or theoretical framework that is universally accepted among healers. 

People who should not choose a Thai massage:

 Anyone with skin rashes, infections or blood disorders.  Thai massage is suitable for most people, but be sure to communicate any areas of swelling or pain to your therapist before they begin. 

During your massage treatment

Your therapist will block and release blood flow to different parts of your body, providing an intense rush of heat to your limbs and boosting your circulation. They will also use oil to deliver a smooth, flowing massage which should relieve tension in your neck, back and shoulders. Make sure to inform your therapist about specific areas of concern before your treatment begins. 

After your Massage

  Take time to rest and relax and avoid intense physical activity until your body has had a chance to recover. Thai massage is most effective after a few, regular treatments, or you could complement it with a Thai massage.
