This practice descends from Thai bodywork method, influenced by ancient Indian and Chinese perspectives of the body and wellbeing. The massage draws on the Indian tradition of yoga to stretch the body and sometimes Ayurveda (the Indian science of life) to customize the massage for an individual's disposition. There is also an awareness of sen lines, the energetic meridians of the body (similar in concept to the channels of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine). Over centuries in Thailand, these systems have been cultivated into a massage practice and merged with meditation. Some even suggest that Thai Yoga Massage originated in the teachings of the Buddha's personal physician. At the heart of the massage is an understanding of Metta, a Buddhist term meaning loving-kindness. The massage is a wonderful opportunity to offer yourself a little Meta, nurturing and relaxation.
