About the event
Thai Massage has become an increasingly popular healing modality all around the world. Yet, to fully tap into its potential, power and effectiveness one needs to understand and apply it within the context of the medicinal system it came from- Traditional Thai Medicine.
Thai Massage is part of one of the five roots/sciences that make Traditional Thai Medicine. These sciences are:
• Medical Sciences
• Orthopedic Sciences
• Oracular Sciences
• Magic Sciences
• Buddhist Sciences
These Sciences are weaved together by Buddhist principles and Element theory creating a unique, comprehensive system of healing wisdom.
As a natural medicine, it uses the Thai Element theory to understand individuality and diagnose imbalances. As a spiritual practice it incorporates Buddhist principles and practices such as of Vipassana (insight) and the Four Brahamaviharas (Divine states of Mind)- Metta, Karuna, Mudita, Uppekha (loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, equanimity).
Powerful stretches and deep acupressure are applied carefully along as a fluid mindful dance creating a relaxed supported body work that allows a profound sense of space and relaxation, congruence, alignment and therapeutic results
