Video – Thai Massage
Founded over 2,500 years ago, Thai massage is still practiced today. Dr. Jivaka, personal physician of Buddha, created this practice after he left India. He is considered the Father of Thai Medicine. Wat Pho in Bangkok is where Traditional Thai massage was first taught… and where you can still learn!
Thai massage take place on the ground. You wear flexible clothes, as you might wear to yoga. The session starts with gentle compressions that lead to deep stretches. This massage is appropriate for any age, though you do have to sit and get up from the padded mat.
