Despite the growing popularity of Thai massage in the western world it is relatively unknown that Thai massage is an integral part of the Traditional Thai Medicine that also consists herbalism, dietary therapy, exercise routines and spiritual practices.
Therefore the full benefits of Thai massage can only be reached with a holistic approach to life. This is one of the reason that Thai massage is never meant to be a single therapy or a cure for conditions, as our fast paced and reductionist culture would suggests. It has been a preventive practice to keep people healthy and able to work.
Thai massage is the most effective when you receive it on a regular base.
