The Origin

The origin of Thai Massage traces back to a time approximately 2500 years ago, when Yogic and Ayurvedic medicine were practiced by monks. The founder of the practice was Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, a doctor believed to be the friend and healer to the Buddha.

Thai Body Yoga Massage is a comprehensive and dynamic bodywork treatment that works on a physical, energetic and emotional level. 

Often referred to as "passive yoga", Thai Yoga Body Massage is a natural bodywork therapy with profound healing qualities that has the same benefits as Tai Chi and martial arts.

It differs from other forms of massage in that it is done on the floor, fully clothed. No oils are used in this practice.
