Massages Traditional Thai massage Traditional Thai massage is one of the world's oldest healing methods. The Thai people saw illness as imbalance in the body or mind and they sought help in the local temple. They were treated with the four elements of traditional medicine: spiritual support, nutritional support, herbs and massage. Thai massage is more than 2,500 years old. Originally Indian, this massage form came to Thailand together with the Buddhist monks. Not only the body, but also the mind feels liberated. This holistic idea - an inseparable connection of body and mind - has its roots in Buddhism. Thai massage is part of the Thai medical and spiritual tradition. Although the massage was traditionally practiced by monks in Buddhist temples, the profession is no longer limited to the temple environment. Thai massage is now practiced all over Thailand, in massage schools, in hospitals, in hotels, on the beach. The body of the massaged person is brought into various yoga positions during a massage. That is why Thai massage is sometimes jokingly called "yoga for lazy people". One is worked with knees and elbows and sometimes even with the full weight of the masseur or masseuse. Oil is not involved. The muscles are kneaded until the last bit of tension has disappeared. Limbs are straightened and stretched, the back arched to a smooth curve. The massage aims to harmonize the body, to release blockages, and to eliminate deficiencies along the energy lines. During the Thai massage comfortable clothing is worn and the massage is done on a futon or mattress. Thai massage prevents and remedies both physical and psychological complaints and stimulates the blood circulation and the lymph system, giving you energy again. Chronic fatigue, back and neck complaints, headaches, stiff muscles and joints and poor circulation can be remedied by Thai massage. It ensures relaxation of the tissues (skin, muscles, nerves and joints) and improves blood circulation. It combats stress and reduces feelings of depression. On a spiritual / spiritual level, it imparts a sense of continuity to the body; it provides flow and activates Chi (Lom).

These hard surfaces ensure that the muscle can no longer move smoothly and often lead to pain in parts of the body where there are connections with other muscles. During the back massage, it is checked where the spots are that cause your pain or discomfort. By using different handles and intensities of action, the muscles are better supplied with blood.
