History of Thai Yoga Massage

The practice of the art of Thai Yoga Massage was born 2500 years ago. It is believed that the founder of this healing art was an Ayurvedic doctor from Northern India called ‘’Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha’’.

He is regarded to be not only the inspirer of the massage techniques, but also as the source of knowledge about the healing powers of herbs and minerals.The exact influences of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine on Thai yoga massage remain obscure to this day and this technique was transmitted slowly from India to Thailand.

It is said that 72,000 energy lines exist on the body and they are called “nadis “. This term is translated as ‘tube, pipe, nerve, blood vessel and pulse’; meaning the channels through which, in traditional Indian medicine and spiritual knowledge, the energy of prana flows.

Yoga philosophy states that life energy (called prana) is absorbed with the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat.

Because of its holistic approach, Thai yoga massage does not treat the body only on a physical level but also on the level of mental and spiritual aspects of ourselves.

You are the sky, everything else is just the weather

Application

By applying a gentle acupressure with thumbs, hands, forearms, elbows and feet along the energy lines, using yoga asanas, and stretching, activating and stimulating the muscle system and relaxing the nervous system we can help the body unblock trapped energy, improve blood circulation, energy balance and sleeping patterns.
The Massage is applied on a mat or futon and normally it takes 90 to 120 min for the full body.

The Essenece

Thai Yoga massage is an ancient healing path that comes to our lives to remind us the beauty of a joyful body, a silent mind and the gentleness of a mindful touch. A healing space can be created for both giver and receiver, unfolding and connecting with the true essence and the qualities of our heart.

It is a path which transforms my life and so many other people’s lives, too. Serving love and care through the beauty of this ancient practice, helps us remember and come back to our true essence of our existence as a way to unfold and find happiness in the simple things in life, which can help us understand that love is what bonds us together as a human race, living in a world that can be seen as the most beautiful place to grow and exist. Finding our own ways to come back where home is for our hearts, allowing our lungs to breath peacefully again with the healing melody of our heartbeat.

Thai yoga massage as a meditative choreography of techniques for both body and mind, guides us in a silent and peaceful place where breath and body awareness can meet and merge together, where our active and passive nature can be neutralized trough an intension of love and care and at the same time it cultivates the simplicity and the beauty of our inner abilities to heal and be healed.
