WHY YOU SHOULD GET MORE TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGES

A Brief History Of Thai Massage:
In December 2019, the traditional Thai massage was added by UNESCO to its Cultural Heritage of Humanity list. It is said that the founder of Thai massage and medicine was Chiwaka Komaraphat, who was Buddha’s physician over 2,500 years ago. He possessed extraordinary medical skills and knowledge of herbal medicine. Though it is suggested there’s a single founder, the history of Thai massage is quite complex integrating a combination of Indian, Chinese, and Southeast Asian cultural influences into its practice. Still to this day, there’s a wide variety in Thai massages across regions in Thailand that there’s no single routine or framework that is universally practiced. -Source: Wikipedia
