Basic Thai Massage Course | Professional Thai Massage Course
Thai Massage is a very ancient therapeutic art. It is a part of the traditional Thai Medicine which has parts of Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine mixed in it. It has a combination of Yoga postures to a passive level and the pressure on Meridians, Marma points and Sen Lines.
The massage is called Yoga Massage/Lazy Yoga or Thai massage. It incorporates the techniques of stretching as in Yoga and using the strokes of Massage.
The objective of practicing Thai Massage is to release stress of the body, regulating the physical and energetic levels of the body and unlock areas of the body that are without the appropriate energy flow.
The Thai Massage tradition is complex, there is considerable variations from region to region across Thailand and there is no single routine or theoretical framework that is universally accepted among the healers or practitioners.
This Massage is for everyone, even the disabled, fragile and elderly. Although there are certain contra-indications of this practice when it comes to doing on certain conditions and diseases.
The Thai Massage tradition is said to have been dated back 2,500 years. Throughout Southeast Asia Dr. Shivago Komarpaj or Jivaka Buccha Komar from Northern India is considered to be the father of Medicine and is lovingly and respectfully referred to as the “Father Doctor”.
It is in the ancient Pali Buddhist text where Dr. Shivago was known to be a physician to Buddha. He had extraordinary medical skills and knowledge of Ayurveda (herbal). His medical system was based on India’s Ayurveda and Yogic traditions.
Dr. Shivago Jivika is known to have treated along with Buddha many more known people of his time.
