yoga therapy or Yoga for the lazy!!
The Roots of Thai Yoga Therapy:
The healing art of Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient and sacred
system of healing with roots in Yoga, Ayurvedic Medicine and Buddhist
Indeed, the roots of Thai massage lie in India, within a system
of healing that traces it's origins back over 3,000 years. In
the Thai language the massage is called Nuad Borarn, which means
ancient massage. The word Borarn comes from the sanskrit root
word Purana which means ancient or sacred body of work. Folk legend
attributes the founding of Thai massage as a healing art to an
Indian doctor and contemporary of the Buddha named Jivaka Kumar
Bhaccha. Over the centuries, spiritual teachings and healing techniques
such as Thai massage have mainly been passed down orally from
master to student. In more or less its present form Thai massage
has been practiced in Thailand for over a thousand years.
Practice of Thai yoga and Benefits:
Thai yoga therapy is a unique and powerful traditional
healing modality. A complete Nuad Boran is more than a simple
massage, it is a healing art incorporating a rhythmic massage,
meridian (sen lines) energy work, asanas (Yogic stretching), gentle
soothing movements, range of motion work and meditation. It is
so different from what we typically mean by “massage”
that it is often described as “yoga for lazy people”.
Like other ancient Asian massage techniques such as Tuina (Chinese
massage), Shiatsu, Reflexology, Ayurvedic, Thai traditional therapy
is considered to be energy-work rather than body-work. It is a
form of therapy based on the theory of the flow of energy between
specific acupressure points on the periphery of the body and the
The traditional therapist is not guided by anatomical or physiological
principles, but by following the intricate network of energy meridians
/ Sen lines and the acupressure points situated along these meridians.
Thai yoga massage is suitable for clients of all ages, abilities
and physical needs. This blend of acupressure, joint mobilization
and stretching is especially beneficial for those who find themselves
stiff, sore and tired from over-exertion in work or sport, or
from arthritis or other disorders affecting mobility. It can be
the perfect complement to any exercise or sport routine to aid
in the increase of range of motion, flexibility, muscular strength,
body alignment preventing by the same way injuries.
This deep tissue massage can also detoxify the body, stimulate
the lymphatic function, and heighten the immune system.
As holistic approach, the most important function of Nuad Borarn
is to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. It balances
the flow of healing energy within the body, opening the areas
which are blocked bringing the person deeper into harmony for
health and wellness of being. This system creates a powerful release
of stress and tension, thus can be an invaluable adjunct to any
other form of treatment.
