Thai Traditional Massage

Thai traditional massage originated some 2,500 years ago. The massage techniques was passed on from generation to generation by word of mouth. The text with detailed descriptions were initially recorded on palm leaves in Pali language. In 1832, King Rama III had the surviving text carved onto stone in order to preserve the text, which can be found in Wat Pho.

The basic principle of Thai massage involves the concept of 10 invisible energy lines flowing through the body, known as "Sip Saen". By massaging these points, it is believed that diseases are cured and pain erradicated.

The ultimate goal of traditional Thai massage is for both the giver and the receiver to reach a state of enlightenment. On a mundane level, this massage exists to heal a person not only physically and emotionally but also spiritually.

The typical Thai massage client is the one who has tried it before and had a positive experience. Its goal is to enhance not only one’s physical and emotional state but also to allow one to grow spiritually.

The Traditional massage centers are too numerous to list, just check with your hotel if the have in-house service, as most hotels do have them. In fact, if you walk along Sukhumvit Road, you are bound to find many places that provide traditional massage.
