Thai Massage, story about it!

The roots of Thai massage would be more than 2500 years old and would make it one of the oldest massages in the world.
It originated in India and the doctor named Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, close friend of Buddha would be the origin.
In Thailand, he is still considered the founding father of Medicine.
It was in 1830 that the Thai king, Rama III, thanks to the creation of the school of Wat Po, allowed Nuad Thai to officially emerge from the shadows.
Moreover, it is at Wat Po, temple of the reclining Buddha that one can see beautiful marble engravings representing the postures of Thai massage.
It is also home to the most prestigious massage school in Thailand and is the place where the first texts of this Buddhist massage are treasured.

How is a Thai Massage session:

Any Thai massage session begins with a small series of questions asked by the masseuse to find out if the person is really fit to receive this type of massage.
Normally, a full Thai massage lasts 2 hours but in order to adapt to the European way of life, it is possible to do only one hour.
Then, the practitioner, will spend loose clothes such as Thai pants and a t-shirt so that the person feels as comfortable as possible.
The client will receive the massage on a futon on the floor in Thai tradition.
Finally, he will be offered a tea or simply a glass of water because you should know that after this type of massage the body needs to rehydrate.
