Thai massage is often described as having someone “perform yoga” on you. Indeed, both Thai massage and yoga go back to ancient times, having their origins in India.
The work itself includes:
- General, rhythmic pressure on the body
- Followed by thumb pressure along specific lines
The basis of Thai massage lies in the theory of energy lines running throughout the body—in a way similar to Traditional Chinese Medicine. The effective flow of energy along these lines is seen as a major contributor to health.
