    Thai massage or Thai Ayurveda massage is an ancient healing method combining Indian Ayurvedic herbal treatment, acupressure, and controlled yoga postures into one complete therapeutic healing program. The original concept of Shen-line alias energy-links was discovered is "Thailand." These are like nadis as per the basic philosophy of Ayurveda by Gorakhnath at the age of 14. This healing philosophy believes that each and every person has "Chi" or power that can be utilized in different ways depending on the situation.

    In early history, Gorakhnath became the instructor of Thai massage in India. He found that while applying pressure to certain parts of the body, certain negative energy centers located in the body would disappear and in its place, a positive energy would surge forth. He devised a series of postures and exercises to aid in this energy surge. The results were marvelous, and the popularity of Thai massage spread throughout the world.

    Today Thai massage has been adapted to meet the western medical community’s demands for a complete therapeutic solution to back pain, neck pain, and other types of pain and discomforts. Many practitioners are well trained to provide Thai massage therapy as a complementary therapy to medicine. Its not just effective in relieving tension headaches and soothing the body; it can also help to reduce stress. Those who participate in Thai massage therapy report improved flexibility, lessened stiffness and pain, and improved range of motion.

    To perform Thai massage, a trained therapist applies soothing, muscle soothing stretching and muscle strengthening strokes to the back and shoulders of their client. Sometimes a therapist will apply a yoga-like stretches to joints that may be stiff or inflamed due to arthritis or injury. The therapist will use their hands, elbows, fingers, and feet for these gentle yet effective stretches and muscle relaxation strokes.

    The kneading movements used in Thai massage create a friction-free surface on which the masseuse is able to work his or her magic. This allows for optimal blood flow and circulation throughout the body.

In addition to kneading, the therapist will also often use tapping, rubbing, and other pressure and vibration techniques to help relieve stiffness and soreness in the muscles. The combination of these touch techniques creates an almost Yoga-like stretch and massage experience.

    Many of the postures used in Thai massage are very effective in helping the client to relieve pain, stiffness and spasms in the muscles. These postures also help to loosen tight muscles that have become stuck in a repetitive stress or injury pattern. These "knots" are deeply ingrained memories from the past that can affect the way that a person moves or thinks. Once these muscle knots have been released, it is possible to move into muscle balance improvement work by applying downward pressure to the knots in the same area to promote circulation, calmness and mobility.

    Many people who have taken up Thai massage treatments report that they are able to: reduce or eliminate feelings of stress, improve sleep, lower anxiety, lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, improve digestion, increase flexibility and range of motion, and boost self-esteem. Perhaps best of all, Thai massage treatments seem to promote a feeling of wellbeing that lingers long after the session has ended. No one is quite sure how this sensation occurs, but it seems to take the body through a well-worn route along the nervous system, ending up in a state of total relaxation.

    One scientific study that was conducted by a California State University found that Thai massage may also help to prevent certain types of heart disease. The scientists found that the rubbing of the feet, combined with breathing techniques, helped reduce the risk of cardiac arrhythmia. This news comes as no surprise to those who have already begun to incorporate Thai massage into their lives. The soothing movements and slow, deep breathing techniques are known to relieve pain, and in some cases, help to reverse the effects of injury. Add to that the reduction of anxiety, the lowering of cholesterol and blood pressure, and the promotion of whole body health, and one may begin to see why many practitioners consider it a useful tool in their day to day lives.
