History of Traditional massage Thai (Nuad Thai)
This therapeutic healing practice has existed in Thailand
for more a thousand years. The history of Thailand shoes
that the Thai people originated near the border of China.
They migrated southwards, finally settling in Southeast
Asia. Thailand has been influenced by many different
civilizations and cultures. China and India are the two
major countries from which many important valuable
cultural and religious practices come. Chinese concept of
traditional medicine (including acupuncture and
acupressure) and Taoist philosophy and practices both
influenced the practice of traditional Thai massage.
The vital force flows along channels or Sen
Traditional Thai Massage is based on the concept of
vital life force energy that flows along channels in the
body called “Sen” to specific energy points. Traditional
Thai Massage focuses on the major channels. Ten of
them are very important in Traditional Thai Massage.
Chiropractic and physiotherapy practices are similar to
Traditional Thai Massage but they do not focus on the
energy channels and points in the body but are based
only on the anatomical structure. Traditional Thai
Massage is similar to reflexology and the concepts of
stretching. It enhances the knowledge and experience
of specialists in the use of therapeutic massage in
treating certain diseases. Usually a teacher teaches
therapeutic massage directly to a student and it takes
a long time to learn properly.
According to Thai Massage theory, the human body
remains healthy when it maintains its balance of
energy in relation to the energy of the universe. Any
imbalance in the flow will result in sickness. Working
on the energy points can relieve blockages and is in
balance, your feeling of well being is restored. You
feel good, energized, relaxed, and free from pain and
Traditional Thai Massage can be applied very
shallowly for relaxation, but can also be applied very
deeply to target a therapeutic effect. Because it can
stimulate the flow of blood and lymph (tissue fluid),
the pressure that is applied to the energy points and
channels will release energy blockages and
stagnation. The combination of pressing and
stretching promotes the flow of energy, helping to
maintain health and preserve youthfulness. There is
freedom from stiffness, loss of flexibility and chronic
pain and the energy levels are balanced which enables
the person to release emotion.
Muscles provide movement of the skeleton by
contracting and relaxing. Emotional tension can
cause a muscle to become tense, contract and shorten
causing stiffness, aches and pains. Tension also
creates an imbalance of force on the spine, resulting
in back pain, neck pain, and headaches which speed
the aging process. Massage and stretching in
traditional Thai massage, will cause the nervous
system to release endorphins. The endorphins can
relieve pain and produce powerful feelings of health
and well being.
Ideally, a whole-body massage will take from two to
three hours to complete. This is enough time to work
on the whole body and still maintain concentration.
This does not mean that less time is less effective. It
is better to spend time on a few parts of the body, so
they can be treated properly instead of speeding up to
try to do the whole body. A good practitioner or
masseur selects the techniques and sequences
according to the needs of the client. There are no
fixed rules of thumb in Traditional Thai Massage; this
would limit the structure and selection of techniques.
Each one has its own style and uses different
sequences and variations.
