  2. 2. Thai traditional massage is world renowned to the point of being a global brand Thai traditional message is renowned all over the world for its sooth- ing and healing powers to the point that it has become a global brand. But to be sure of getting the real thing, it’s best to visit Thailand. Traditional Thai style massage involves stretching and deep tissue massage. It is known as “nuet phaen boran”, literally ancient-manner massage, and as in former times, the client usually wears comfort- ably loose clothes and lies on a mat on the floor. The masseur or masseuse leans into the client’s body applying firm rhythmic pressure using hands and often arms locked at the elbow. Legs and feet are also used in several positions during massage, but no oils are applied. The massage generally follows the body’s sen – energy lines analogous to meridians or channels as in Chinese medi- cine or nadis Indian Ayurvedic practice.

This can include pulling fingers, toes, and ears, cracking the knuckles, walking on the client's back, and arching the recipient into bhujangasana, the cobra posi- tion. Bending the client over backwards, so that the spine rests on the masseur’s upright knees, is a trick that must to be done just right to prevent doing more harm than good. Good masseurs or masseuses start on the legs, then course through every nook and cranny of aches and tension, finishing with a facial tone-up. A significant part of Thai massage includes yoga-like stretches that are intended to stimulate the sen and move lom through the body via a pumping action which is connected with the patient's breathing. Sen and lom are often translated as "meridians" and "energy."
