Thai massage is believed to have been developed by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, physician to Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago in India and therefore is thought to have strong roots in Ayurvedic medicine.
Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist will use his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of integrated yoga stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work and is often nicknamed lazy man’s yoga!
Muscle compression, joint mobilisation, and acupressure are also used during treatment and people describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energising.
Thai massage is usually done on a padded mat on the floor.
No oils are applied and loose comfortable clothing is recommended.
A typical Thai massage is between 60 minutes to two hours long.
Victoria has been practising Thai massage for over 8 years and along with running introductory workshops, she is also one of the founding members of The Sumana Thai massage clinic in Brighton.
