Nuad Boran (aka Thai Massage / Bodywork) is not a traditional massage at all. It is an ancient energy-based healing system originally based in ayurvedic medicine and popularized in Thailand. In its essence it is a spiritual healing art, incorporating Buddhist healing principles, not just a physical therapy. “Accomplished therapists and teachers understand the power of meditation and stillness while at work, both for the giver and the receiver they work slowly and in a meditative way” [source: Bob Haddad, THAI]
