Thai Seated Massage Diploma

Thai Seated Massage

Traditional Ancient Thai massage is a unique form of Bodywork that incorporates Hatha Yoga, acupressure and reflexology with origins dating back about 2500 years. 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. It has a close relationship with Indian Ayurvedic medicine, yoga, traditional Chinese medicine and Japanese Shiatsu. Unlike the techniques used in Western massage or the well known Swedish massage, the Thai method uses point pressure, muscle stretching and compression, done in a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking.
