TUCSON: Basic Thai Bodywork Series- Thai Massage:Supine Position

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]

The multiple benefits of this practice are:

  • relief for pain and muscle tension

  • greater flexibility and range of motion

  • improved alignment of the spine 

  • a general increase of energy

  • increased circulation of blood & lymph

  • a balanced nervous system

  • deep relaxation

  • strengthening and rejuvenating the body, mind, and spirit

  • reduced recovery time from sport activities

  • dramatic increase of general well-Being
