The philosophical theory of Thai massage is similar of that Ayurvedic massage which is based on the life energy channels and the belief that a person’s health and wellbeing relies on the balance of life energy. Life energy in Thai massage is called “Prana”, which means ” the wind of life”, and is know of “Lom Pran” in Thai. An obstruction in the flow of the Prana can cause discomfort or illness to a person. As Sen Sib are the major energy channels throught the body, they need regular maintenance to avoid any blockage or stagnation.
Applied properly, Thai massage helps immensely in removing blockages that could obstruct the energy flow in the Sen Sib, and bring balance to the body, mind and spirit.
