Thai massage is a form of traditional Thai medicine, involving stretching and massage by a knowledgeable practitioner, one who has cultivated a Buddhist spirituality and is concerned with achieving ‘metta,’ or a sense of loving kindness with their patient. No oils are used or nudity is involved, and most of the movements take place on the floor, on a mat. Thai massage can be performed one-on-one or in a group. Some yoga-like positions are involved, but rhythmic, repeated, gentle pressures make up the bulk of the practice, focusing on the ‘sen’ lines of the human body in order to energize and rejuvenate. Most body parts are involved, from the fingers and toes, to limbs, to core, and a typical session lasts around two hours, though some can be longer or shorter. These techniques were developed in Thailand and borrow ancient healing practices from India, China, and Southeast Asia.
Thai massage is said to have originated with Shivago Komarpa, Buddha’s own physician over 2,500 years ago, according to Buddhist Canon. However, other cultures have influenced Thai massage throughout the centuries and made the true origins of the practice unclear. Different techniques are used and routines vary, even within Thailand. The practice has recently become regulated by the Thai government and is considered part of Thai traditional medicine, which is recognized as a medical branch. However, in spa settings massage is still sometimes practiced in a non-medical context. Practitioners have emerged in other countries, where regulations are not present. Thai massage has become very popular in Western cultures and many institutes have arisen in these places for learning the techniques involved. There are also many schools in Thailand where one can learn the practice of massage, including the many aspects connected to it, such as the sen lines and the concept of ‘lom,’ or air, believed to inhabit the human body.
A prayer is often said before a massage, invoking gratefulness for the techniques passed down through the centuries, and an invocation for the practitioner to connect with and help their patient. Thai massage is a spiritual practice that seeks to affect body and mind, and is safe for even fragile and older patients. The benefits can be just as strong for the mind as for the body, bringing a sense of peace and connectedness.
The physical benefits of Thai massage are many. These can include relaxation, improved circulation, stress reduction, increased energy, and an improved range of motion. The practitioner does most of the work, mobilizing joints, applying pressure, and positioning the patient into various poses, so the experience is relaxing and easy-going for the person being worked on. It is not recommended, however, for those who have bruising, sores, or lesions on the skin, have recently had surgery, or are prone to blood clots. Thai massage can be safe for pregnant women, but only if practiced by a massage therapist who has pregnancy massage training. Those with special physical and health conditions should consult their doctor before visiting a Thai massage practitioner.
