Traditionally, it is assumed that the massage was created by Pali – Buddhas physician. In the 19th century, the massage was codified and in 1955 a large massage school opened in Wat Pho.
Thai massage techniques
Thai massage uses pressure points as well as elements of bending and stretching – much like yoga. Skin and muscles can be pulled, rocked, or compressed. Sometimes, the pressure is applied at the same time using knees and hands.
The best way to deliver a Thai massage is on a relatively thin, hard mattress on the floor which allows the therapist to move freely. Traditionally, customers wear special Thai massage clothes during the massage. Hence, the massage therapist does not use oils or direct body contact.
Furthermore, traditionally, men massage men and women massage women, but this is not a strict rule.
