Thai Yoga Massage (NUAD) 


Thai Yoga Massage (Thai: Nuad Phaen Boran)in its true form is a weaving together of MASSAGE & YOGA (acupressure, stretching, joint manipulation, energy work), METTA (loving kindness), VIPASSANA (meditation of insight). ​The masseur practices in a meditative state and develops his/her sensitivity and compassion to tune into the recipient’s needs in order to offer him/her the chance to find releases, relief and deep relaxation. 

Thai Yoga Massage is one of the traditional healing methods of the medical system practiced in Thailand. It is a sacred dance, an ancient Eastern technique dating back to around 2500 years ago at the time of the Buddha (Gautama Siddharta's time, developed by Buddhs's close friend and physician, Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha. The art of Thai yoga massage was traditionally practised in Buddhist monasteries.

Asokananda (Harald Brust, 1955-2005 from Germany) was the first Western person to receive detailed training in Thai massage from several Thai massage masters, to structure the complex training and to publish the first book about Thai massage in English, thereby introducing this form of therapy to the West countries. In the 1990s he founded his own Thai massage school - the Sunshine School in a mountain village in the hills of northern Thailand, close to Chang Mai, and later founded the Sunshine Network which connects friends and teachers of this art from around the world. 

I studied at Sunshine House in Greece, with Krishnatakis and Kerys who both studied in Northern Thailand with masters such as Chayuth Priyasith and Pichet
 Boonthume and with Asokananda.

What is Thai Yoga Massage like?

Thai Yoga Massage usually takes place on a mat on the floor, fully clothed in loose, comfortable clothing. The techniques can be static (sinking in deeply in a meditative state) or can be quite dynamic (rocking, rhythmic and harmonic movements) - all to activate the free flow of energy in the body.

Thai massage promotes general health and well-being in the body, both preventative and therapeutic and can be deeply relaxing and restorative.
