Origin and Brief history of thai massage
Its origin dates back more than 2,500 years in Ayurvedic medicine in India and has cultural influences from China and other Southeast Asian countries. This type of massage is linked to the expansion of Buddhism in Asia, which is why it also has roots in yogic philosophy. Its official founder is considered to have been Chiwaka Komaraphat, a physician and contemporary friend of Buddha; in fact, traditional Thai massage developed over the centuries within Buddhist temples, as a physical way to expand the benefits of meditation. That is why it has a spiritual aspect. It uses passive stretching combined with pressure on the muscles to be treated to unblock the physical, emotional and mental body, allowing harmony and correcting imbalance and disease. This acupressure on certain points of the body releases tension in the muscle tissue at a deeper level than that achieved with other types of massage.
Thai massage, so closely related to the medicine of its country, is said to be an example of the “Four States of Divine Mind” in the
Buddhist teaching: kindness, compassion, vicarious joy and equanimity; These embody the spirit in which traditional Thai medical services were delivered.
