What is Traditional Thai Massage?

We do your yoga for you – and so much more!
Thai massage, or Nuad Bo-Rarn, is a full-body massage performed on a mat on the floor with both parties wearing loose, comfortable clothes. A blending of elements, yogic stretching, fascial stretch therapy, acupressure, t’ai chi, breathwork and meditation, and incorporates traditional Thai medicine. The practitioner uses his/her hands, feet, arms and legs to guide the recipient into various yoga postures.  It is a graceful, flowing, harmonious dance between giver and receiver, combining rhythmic rocking, palming and thumbing along the sen lines. Deep, sustained pressure ensures that the myofascia, or the muscle’s connective tissue, soften and relax in order to release the flow of energy along the sen, and to prepare the client for the large-scale stretches that follow.

Traditional Thai Massage is said to have been founded but the legendary Shivago Komarpaj, a physician from over 2500 years ago. Originally from northern India and said to be a friend and personal physician of the Buddha, he also worked with the Magadha King Bimbasara and the Buddhist nuns and monks called the Sangha. Though there are a combination of influences for Thai medicine from Chinese, Indian and Southeast Asian culture credit is giving mostly to Mr. Komarpaj and he is certainly honoured by all teachers and students to this day. Most of the recorded history of Thai massage was lost in 1767 during the Burmese attack in Ayutthia. There were records that survived and were inscribed in the Sala Moh Nuat, a massage pavillion in Bangkok. Following World War II Thailand became a popular place for tourist, making Thai massages a world known technique.

Thai Massage is one of the four branches of Traditional Thai medicine. It is a healing technique that was practiced before doctors and eventually made its way into hospital, becoming part of Traditional Thai medicine, along with herbal medicine and spiritual meditation. Families who passed down the techniques from generation to generation ingrained it in the fabric of Thai culture through the practice.  Many of the Thai massage stretches and movements are also used in traditional Western sports medicine (known as Fascial Stretch Therapy) for the ability to reset resting muscle length, and find and relieve unhealthy muscle and joint tensions.

On December 23, 2019, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has designated traditional Thai massage as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity, and including it on the organization’s World Heritage list.
At Bahn Thai Spa we have a host of practitioners from different backgrounds – dance, Crossfit, Muay Thai boxing and Triatholon athletes to name but a few. This helps our practitioners address the needs of our clients whatever their level of fitness is.
The benefits of Thai massage are numerous for not only maintaining good health but treating a wide spectrum of health concerns:

  • increases flexibility and range of movement
  • eliminates muscle pain and muscle spasms
  • allows for a significant release of deep, emotional distress
  • stimulates blood circulation and lymph drainage
  • stimulates internal organs
  • relieves fatigue, swollen limbs, painful joints, and headaches
  • improves postural alignment calms the nervous system and promotes a deep sense of relaxation
Is it advisable for the elderly?

Thai massage is wonderful for elderly people and for those coping with disabilities. In many cases, it’s exactly what they need. One of the main reasons people at a certain age start deteriorating rapidly in health is because they no longer move. Thai massage takes their muscles and joints through their optimal range of motion. This can be a profound and liberating experience for them. Thai massage is sometimes called “yoga massage” or “assisted yoga.” Clients enjoy the benefits of yoga—from opening tight joints to deep relaxation—simply from being moved passively into yoga-like poses.

What type of clothing do I wear for Thai massage?

You will remain fully clothed for a Thai massage, so you should wear clothing that is comfortable and can stretch easily. We also have clothing that you can wear during your massage.

Is Thai massage painful?

Massage should always be done to your comfort level. While some of the movements may feel strange, they should never feel painful. You should feel comfortable enough with your massage therapist to communicate with them throughout the session if you experience any discomfort or pain.

How long should I get Thai massage?

At Lanna Thai Spa, we offer massages lasting 60 minutes, 90 minutes and 120 minutes. We typically recommend a 90-minute massage. This will allow the client relaxation time, and will give the therapist time to concentrate on problem areas. We want you to have the best massage experience, and we believe you will achieve the best experience if you’re not rushed.

How often do you change sheets for Thai massage mattress?

Your health is very important to us, so we pay very close attention to cleanliness at the spa. We change all sheets, towels and pillow cases after each and every massage, and massage clothing is used just one time per client before being cleaned.

What I should expect after I get Thai massage?

      Discuss the pros and cons of massage with your doctor, especially if you are pregnant, have cancer, or unexplained pain. You must make your health condition known by providing accurate answers on the patient intake form we ask all clients to complete before their massage.

What happens if I fall asleep during my massage?

It’s quite common for people to fall asleep during relaxing massages. Massage therapists typically take this as a compliment and a sign that they’re providing maximum relaxation to their clients. Enjoy your massage experience and don’t expect yourself to stay awake and alert at all times.

If I have an "all body" massage, will it literally be my whole body?

A full-body massage doesn’t have to include your sensitive areas. You can say which parts of your body you don’t want to be touched.
A full-body massage usually includes your arms, legs, hands and feet, your neck, your head, your face and back, your stomach and buttocks. The area around the breasts is usually massaged but not the breasts themselves. You can always say you hate having your breast area or buttocks or whatever touched. If you’re at all unsure, try booking for a “back, neck and shoulder” massage first to see how comfortable you are with being touched in those areas. If all goes well, then next time you can book a full-body massage.
Even with a full-body massage, most of you stays covered most of the time. Your therapist will unwrap your arm and shoulder, for instance, or uncover your leg while she massages that part of your body. When she needs you to turn over, she will hold the towel up as a screen so you can turn over in private. Simple when you know how!
