What is Thai Massage?

Thai massage therapy is a complex treatment, here is a breakdown of information that may be useful.

  1. There are a number of Thai massage therapies. The more traditional therapy studied in the North of the country is called ‘Nuat Thai Boran’ it is different from what is taught in the South which is regarded and called the Royal Method.
  2. Nuat Thai Boran is based on the teachings and methods of the Father, Doctor & Teacher Shivago Komargaj. Which blends together different methods, techniques, rules and disciplines to form a more complete tailored treatment for clients.
  3. The use of rhythmic techniques such as pressure, movement, stretching, thumbing, palming, squeezing, circling, sliding, rolling, rotating, twisting, cracking and chopping. Adding the use of bamboo, tok sen, cloth and hot herbal compressions gives this Nuat Thai Boran a very unique and powerful option on tailored treatments for clients.
  4. Thai (massage) therapy is based on the idea that energy flows through the body in channels called Zen lines, there are roughly 2,700 Sen in the body but Thai Therapy tends to work the Ten major ones. So the direct connection between each Zen line, points along it and its location to any ailments found can be treated using Thai therapy techniques.
