Thai Massage History

Thai Massage: An Oral Tradition

From the MASSAGE Magazine article, “Body in Balance: Thai Massage,” by Anthony James, N.D., in the June 2009 issue. Article summary: In Thai massage, the entire body is pushed, pressed, rocked, vibrated and rhythmically compressed by virtually every part of the therapist’s body—hands, feet, elbows, knees, forearms and shins.
