Die Geschichte der Thai Massage


The traditional Thai Massage [ นวดแผนโบราณ ] has a long Tradition and it has originated from India (Ayurveda and Hatha Yoga) as well as from Tibet (Vasrayana-Diamond Healing Lineage).

About 2000 years ago this knowledge came to Siam (Thailand) with Buddhism and it was taught and recorded by the monks.

Many monasteries had, and still have, apothecaries and medical schools attached.

Today Thai Massage is an integral part of the daily life in Thailand.

It takes an holistic approach and includes proper nourishment, physical exercises, the use of herbs and therapeutic massage.

Jivaka Kumarabhacca (better known as Shivago Komarpaj) from northern India is called "the Father of Thai Massage" and is highly venerated.

He was a contemporary of Lord Buddha and with his advanced medical learning he cured countless monks and laymen, without remuneration.
