Buddha's physician is considered the founder of traditional Thai massages. This, of course, is only one of the legends. For something that has been around and helping people for over 2,000 years now, fantasy stories are much more.
Scientifically speaking, classical massages from Thailand are a combination of techniques, beliefs and practices from the folk medicine and folklore of India, China and Southeast Asia. It is believed that the massages currently practiced actually took shape as relaxation systems in the 19th century. To this day, there is no general practical or theoretical framework that is unanimously accepted by all massage therapists and healers in the different regions of Thailand.
However, at the heart of traditional Thai massages is the theory that the human body is imbued with vital energy. This energy travels through the 72,000 pathways that exist within it. They are called "sen" or "vessels". Most often, massage therapists focus on the main lines and massage certain points along them to unblock the pathways of vital energy. In most regions of the country, healers practicing Thai massages accept that the navel is the center of the body and all the paths of vital energy start from it.
An important part of massages are yoga poses - asanas that the massaged person must take. They are used to stimulate the main points along the life energy path and also help the massaged person learn to regulate their breathing. Thanks to this ability to control, a person manages to eliminate stress, learns how to get out of critical situations and achieves emotional stability.
The healing philosophy of traditional Thai massage definitely holds the connection between a healthy body and a healthy mind. If you believe in it, then they will certainly help you and you will feel their effect very quickly.
