The Basics
Performed on a mat on the floor with the client comfortably clothed, Thai Massage uses two primary procedures.  The first of these applies pressure to acupressure points and sen (energy) lines, to stimulate the energy body and internal organs. The second utilizes a large number of passive movements to open and balance the muscular-skeletal structure and to release blockage and restriction.
Thai Yoga massage combines acupressure, reflexology and applied yoga stretches. The practitioner uses feet, elbows, palms thumbs and knees to apply pressure. The sequences of stretching and acupressure work are given in a smooth and harmonious way, with each move dissolving into the next.

History
Originating in India over 2500 years ago Thai Massage is one of the oldest healing modalities known. With a foundation in Ayurvedic Medicine, Yogic Asana's and Buddhist Meditation, it spread east and is now associated with Thailand, where it evolved into a sophisticated  and comprehensive holistic therapy.
Thai Massage (otherwise known as Nuad Boran meaning Ancient Massage) is accredited to an  ayurvedic doctor named Jivaka Kumar Bhacca, who is revered to this day throughout Thailand as the "father of medicine." Born in India during the time of the Buddha, he is mentioned in a variety of ancient documents for his extraordinary medical skills, for his knowledge of herbal medicine, and for having treated important people of his day, including the Buddha himself.
