Philosophies Behind the Practices

Thai bodywork is just one branch of the overall Thai Medical Theory which has been in practice for thousands of years in Thailand. Thai medical theory focuses on the 5 elements Earth, Water, Wind, Fire & Space. The philosophy is that all things are comprised of these 5 elements and when someone is experiencing dis-ease, it is due to the imbalance of their elemental constitution. Many believe that this theory comes from Ayurveda but the truth is that Ayurveda was born from the seeds of Thai Medical Theory making its way from Thailand to India.

A Thai bodywork practitioner focuses on working the ‘Sen’ lines of the body. Thai ‘Sen’ lines are different from Chinese ‘Zen’ in that they correspond with physical arteries, ligaments, tendons & muscles whereas ‘Zen’ lines correspond with energetic channels. Thai massage looks different than traditional massage. Thai massage happens on a mat so the practitioner can use their leverage. What truly classifies Thai Bodywork is the understanding of Thai Medical Theory; which is a revered science in Thailand and may take a practitioner 8-10 years of study to truly understand & apply.

The art of cupping has been used in almost every ancient culture around the world at some point. Many attribute cupping to Chinese medicine but the Chinese weren’t the only folks to discover that creating a little suction in areas where someone is experiencing pain can help reduce inflammation, break up stagnation & improve circulation. Cupping is a great addition to any body- or energy work session as it assists in deepening the practice and yielding surprisingly quick results.
