WHAT IS THAI ELEMENTS?
Thai Elements invokes the wisdom inherent in the natural Elements - Space, Wind, Fire, Water, Earth and Consciousness, as viewed in the Thai Tradition.
As an independent branch of ThaiVedic - an International School of Holistic Medicine - Thai Elements focuses on Thai Healing Arts, presenting aspects of the system of Thai Medicine as close to its original/traditional format as possible.
The aspiration is to present Thai Massage within the context of Traditional Thai Medicine in a way that honors lineage and tradition. Preserving the body of knowledge shared with me by genuine teachers and lineage holders.
THAI MASSAGE ORIGINS
Thai Massage has become an increasingly popular healing modality all around the world. Yet, to fully tap into its potential, power and effectiveness one needs to understand and apply it within the context of the medicinal system it came from- Traditional Thai Medicine.
Thai Massage is part of one of the five roots/sciences that make Traditional Thai Medicine. These sciences are:
• Medical Sciences
• Orthopedic Sciences
• Oracular Sciences
• Magic Sciences
• Buddhist Sciences
These Sciences are weaved together by Buddhist principles and Element theory creating a unique, comprehensive system of healing wisdom.
As a natural medicine, it uses the Thai Element theory to understand individuality and diagnose imbalances. As a spiritual practice it incorporates Buddhist principles and practices such as of Vipassana (insight) and the Four Brahamaviharas (Divine states of Mind)- Metta, Karuna, Mudita, Uppekha (loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, equanimity).
Powerful stretches and deep acupressure are applied carefully along as a fluid mindful dance creating a relaxed supported body work that allows a profound sense of space and relaxation, congruence, alignment and therapeutic results.
