Traditional Thai Medicine

 

The history of Traditional Thai Medicine begins with the land known today as Thailand, previously known as Siam.

 

The origin of every traditional medicine system starts with the land and its environment- Nature. What makes traditional systems of medicine around the world different and unique is the fact that the land, climate, plants and diseases are different and unique all around the globe.

 

The ancient kingdom of Siam ( nowadays Thailand), bordered south by Malaysia, west by Burma, East by Cambodia, North by Lao and right in the center of the trading route between China and India exposed the territory to many influences.

 

Predominantly a Buddhist culture, the primary figurehead in traditional Thai medicine is the Buddha as he is viewed as the the ultimate physician andDhamma ( his teachings) the ultimate healing tool to eradicate suffering. So Thai Medicine is inherently Buddhist Medicine.

Traditional Thai Massage

 

Thai Massage is part of the branches of the Great Tree of Traditional Thai Medicine. This Tree has 5 major roots:

  • Internal Medicine (plant, animal and mineral material) ​

  • External Medicine (Reusi Dat Ton, Thai Massage, Acupressure, Tok Sen, Scraping, medicated oils, herbal compresses, balms, liniments….) 

  • Divinatory Sciences (palmistry, Jyotish astrology, numerology.)

  • Magic Sciences (mantras, invocations, incantations, shamanism, Sak Yam, magic….)

  • Buddhist Medicine.

 

 

These roots are weaved together by Buddhist principles and Element theory creating a unique, comprehensive system of healing wisdom.  

 

As a natural medicine, it uses the Five 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.
