Nuad Buran- Traditional Thai Massage
Traditional Thai Massage is an ancient art with roots in Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine. The origins of this practice date to the early movement of Buddhism in Asia.
History of Thai medicine
The founding father of Thai massage is an Ayurvedic doctor named Jivaka Kumar Bhacca. In our days is revered throughout Thailand as the Father of Medicine. Born in India during the time of the Buddha, he is mentioned in a variety of ancient documents for his extraordinary medical skills. Also for his knowledge of herbal medicine, and for having treated important people of his day, including the Buddha himself.
The techniques then found their way to Thailand where they have been practiced for over 2,500 years. Traditional Thai Massage, known as Nuad Boran, is rooted in the Buddist philosophy of Metta, the art of giving with loving touch and kindness .
Nuad Boran chronological view and explanations
The Thai word Nuad means ‘touching with the intention of alleviating or healing’.
Boran derives from the Sanskrit word ‘Purana’, which in turn can be translated as ‘something sacred, ancient and revered’.
