This is the basics of all the Thai Massage you will practice. You will learn about the origins and guiding principles as well as the sequences of movements and postures you will need to master.
Thai massage is to promote good health. Health is not only a matter of absence of diseases, but it means total well-being, physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.
When you feel well, it is because your being is well balanced. Ill feeling of any kind occurs from loss of balanced, be it of any dimension. Thai massage promotes and restores balance of your system, body and mind as well as social and spiritual. Massaging releases muscles from their mounted tension which causes pain and discomfort, leading to relaxation, feeling of happiness and even bliss. Researches have shown lowering of blood pressure and tranquility associated with massaging. And no wonder why people fall asleep while being massaged.
There is a social dimension during massage. Compassion and goodwill of the care givers, as well as the politeness and the respectful touching, uplift the spirit of the people being cared for. It enhances faith in goodness. In reality every human being has a seed of goodness buried deep in the heart. Prevailing materialism in the world masks the seed from growing. Massaging with compassion and goodwill will set the seed free to grow into goodness trees that cool the world.
The massaging which may seem to be a small business can bring vast result. It does not heal only body and mind, but is also a spiritual development. And spiritual development is limitless…
