The true practice of the art of healing in traditional nuad boran (thai massage) is the compassionate intent of the healer. The Buddhist
spiritual practices associated with Thai massage cultivate humility, awareness, and concentration in the healer designed to bring the
practitioner to a deeper level of awareness of herself and the client. This compassionate state of being is termed “metta”, which usually translates as “loving kindness”.
Thai culture is the wellspring of modern massage therapies, and is much more than what is typically considered massage in the West, which accounts for its appeal and attraction to visitors to Thailand. It combines many different techniques into one all-encompassing system, drawing particularly on acupressure, reflexology, and assisted yoga postures.
Typically, a deep calm ensues as the massage progresses, as the recipient enters a meditative state and bonds with the massage therapist. The body relaxes, the joints loosen, the muscles stretch, and done properly, the body undergoes a transformation as the healing begins. Regular sessions are important if one is to maximise the benefits of this technique.
At Wyong Thai Massage we endeavour to bring the culture, skill and kindness of Thai Massage to the Central Coast.
