Thai Massage originated in India 2,500 years ago. Merging Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine, it works with the body's energy channels or pathways known as sen lines, through the modalities of acupressure and assisted movements such as stretching, pulling, and rocking techniques to relieve tension, promote deep relaxation, and improve flexibility and circulation. Unlike traditional western oil based massages, Thai Massage is performed fully clothed on a padded ground. ​​

A few benefits supported by scientific research include:

Research on arthritis patients found that the study participants felt less pain and walked with greater ease after an 8-week program and that 3 weeks of Thai massage provided the same pain relief as 3 weeks of ibuprofen.

Researchers hypothesize that the increase in flexibility may be because Thai massage has the ability to improve blood flow and oxygen supply to muscles. This, in turn, may help reduce pain and decrease muscle adhesions.

The researchers also found that the Thai massage treatments improved the athletes’ speed and agility on the field.
