What is Thai Massage

Thai Massage, (also known as Nuad Borarn, Thai Yoga Massage, and Thai Bodywork), seamlessly blends massage therapy, energy work, and assisted yoga stretches. The practitioner rhythmically uses their hands, feet, forearms, and knees to apply the therapeutic techniques. The sessions are performed fully clothed on a mat on the floor. Sessions can also be adapted for the massage table, as well as seated in a massage chair or wheelchair. 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.
