История на тайландския масаж

History and origins of Thai massage

Thai massage is an ancient healing system dating back 2,500 years. It is believed to have been created by the Indian physician Jivaka Kumar Batsa , who was a friend and physician of the Buddha. Jivaka Kumar Batsa has combined his knowledge of Ayurveda, yoga and Buddhist philosophy to create a massage system that heals both body and mind.

The first records of Thai massage are found in palm leaves written in Sanskrit. These sheets describe the techniques of massage as well as its health benefits. Thai massage has been passed down orally from generation to generation for centuries.

In the 19th century, Thai massage was popularized by King Rama IV, who was a great supporter of this healing system. He established a Thai massage school in Bangkok, where massage therapists from all over the country were trained.

Today, Thai massage is one of the most popular healing systems in the world. It is practiced in over 100 countries, including Bulgaria.
