The theoretical foundation of Thai Massage is based on the concept of invisible energy lines running
through the body.
The Indian origin and influence is obvious here since the background of this theory
clearly lies in Yoga philosophy. Yoga philosophy states that life energy (prana) is absorbed with the air we
breathe and the food we eat. The human being is supplied with this vital energy along a network of energy lines, the nadis.
That’s why Thai Massage is also known as Thai YogaMassage.
With the application of rhythmic pressure on certain points and energy lines (sen) throughout the body and
by applying yogic stretchings and joint mobilisations, blockages can be released and the energy restored to
its natural flow. By using the body weight in an intelligent way and by deepen and refine the sensitivity
in the hands, the massage can penetrate different body layers (koshas) - its effects be experienced on an
emotional, energetically and physical level.
