Practiced in Thailand for over 2,500 years, Thai massage has been influenced by the traditional medicine systems of India, China, and Southeast Asia, and is considered an ancient healing system with its roots in Yoga, Ayurvedic medicine and the Buddhist spiritual practice. Incorporated into the healing therapy is also the practice of mindfulness, awareness, loving kindness, and compassion.

Credit for Thai massage is given to an Indian doctor, Jiwaka Komaraphat, who was the personal physician to the Buddha. Like the healing principles utilized in other eastern therapies, the Thai Massage system focuses on vital energy circulation within the body.

It is believed the body consists of 72,000 pathways called Sen (energy lines), of which ten hold top priority. When these energy lines are stimulated with pressure points, blockages are broken down to increase energy flow and restore balance and harmony to the body.

Regulated by the Thailand Government, Thai massage is one of the branches of Thai Traditional Medicine (TTM) in present day, and is considered to be a medical discipline used for the treatment of a wide variety of ailments.
