In Thailand, thai massage is an integral part of everyday life. They are practiced mainly as a preventive measure, because their regular practice allows you to stay in good health.
Traditional Thai massage is a true alternative medicine that has its roots in the ancestral traditions of Ayurvedic medicine.
In Thailand it is called Nuad Bo Rarn or Nuad Boran. Nuad means “pressure” and boran means “old”.
Of Indian origin, its practice spread to Thailand at the same time as Buddhism, around the 5th century BC.
The Nuad Boran is practiced on the ground on a futon, dressed in loose and comfortable clothes, and without oil or lotion.
The masseur uses his thumbs, elbows, knees, feet to exert pressure on the whole body, as well as stretching and postures.
It is an invigorating massage that works the whole body, and its health benefits are numerous.
In addition to softening the joints and relaxing the muscles, Thai massage helps detoxify the body, in parallel with the 3 other elements of traditional Thai medicine: nutrition, herbal medicine and meditation.
