It is told, that Thai massage was created more than 2500 years ago, by the personal doctor of Buddha,master Jivaka. Therefore, meditation has a great influence on this massage technique, that addresses energy through the stimulation of the Sen lines or paths. The body through muscle stretches, and the spirit by means of yoga.
The Energy Theory is based on the balance among the four elements: Earth, Water, Wind and Fire,on the free flow of energy between specific point of the body. Out of the lines that run through our body, we going to focus on the 10 principal channels, Sen Sib, that are represented in the following graph. Each of these energy lines, that have their distinct name and route, is related to the functioning of one or various organs. Its free flow and balance conditions our physical and mental health. The veracity of this theory cannot be proved, nevertheless the positive response to stimulation through the different massage technique is obvious!
