Thai Massage, (also known as Nuad Borarn, Thai Yoga Massage, and Thai Bodywork), seamlessly blends massage therapy, compression, stretching, assisted yoga, and other manual therapies. This ancient bodywork is believed to have its origins in Ayurveda, Theraveda Buddhism, and shares similarities with Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is one of the branches of Traditional Thai Medicine.
