Thai Origins

History of Thai Massage

Thai_Massage_St_Margarets_StaionTraditional Ancient Thai massage is a unique form of Bodywork that incorporates Hatha Yoga, acupressure and reflexology with origins dating back about 2500 years.
The roots of Thai massage are traced back to the founder of the practice (known as “Father Doctor”) Shivaga Komarpaj, a doctor, friend and contemporary to the Buddha.
Ancient Medical texts were carved in stone in attempts to preserve the tradition of Thai massage; these stone inscriptions still sit within the walls of the Wat Pho temple in Bangkok.
In Thailand, there are many agricultural people who do a lot of physical work through the day and their muscles become very tight and sore, so they teach their children massage skills they learned from their parents. In this way Thai massage is passed down as an oral tradition.
Massage has a unique style in each area of Thailand. When people would gather together from different regions they would exchange their techniques of massage.
In this same way influences came from other countries such as China, India, Burma and Tibet creating its evolution and development.
