History of Thai massage: from the past to the present.


Many people associate Thai massage with a source of pleasure, enjoyment and relaxation after a hard day's work. The procedure is suitable for everyone – from children to adults. Thai massage for athletes: recovery after training is recommended. The procedure will help to relieve the tension in muscles, relieve pain and relax. Thai massage for kids, features and benefits of which have been proven by experts, is no less healing. Still, few people have thought about where this type of massage therapy comes from and who its founder is.

Thai massage history is based on the Buddhist tradition, and is an integral part of the local culture. The procedure development dates back thousands of years, and today it is especially popular. The Royal Thai Spa beauty center offers its clients a variety of services:

  • traditional massages,
  • SPA programs;
  • special rituals;
  • care procedures and much more.

It is noteworthy that the sessions are conducted not just by masters, but by specialists with corresponding qualifications, who massage areas of the body using natural aromatic oils brought from Thailand.

Thai massage: how it all began

The Thai massage founder is the almost legendary healer Javaka Kumar Bhashi of an Indian king, who began massaging the body in a special way more than 2,000 years ago. He combined physical exercises and prayers, and this began to help people. Today it is impossible to name the exact date when Thai massage appeared. In addition, many consider India to be the origin of this procedure. This is because the technique of influence on the body was passed down from generation to generation and was not recorded in writing.

The first mentions appeared back in 1455 AD. During this period, Thai massage was used to treat ailments of the royal family. This is the ancient Ayutthaya period. In other records it is possible to find the information about the period of the reign of King Narai the Great. In the chronicles it was mentioned that when someone had a painful condition, he turned to a special person for help, who would walk on the sick person with his feet.

The origins of Thai massage are shrouded in centuries of history, which is documented in writing today. At that time, it was not possible to record the practices of Thai massage; knowledge was passed on only orally, because there was no writing. But already in 1832, according to the Gregorian calendar, the first university was founded, where, with the help of images, lines of influence on the body and acupressure, ordinary citizens were taught traditional Thai medicine, massage and yoga. The creation of the university once again demonstrates the effectiveness of Thai medicine.

Taking into account the fact that in ancient times there were no manifestations of modern grammar, the Thai massage history is interesting and fascinating. Today, for modern masters, this is not just massaging separate parts of the body, which together have a beneficial effect on the organism. A real massage therapist senses the individual characteristics of each person on the energy level.
