Bangkok Thai traditional massage outcall service shows evidence of Indian yogic influence but also resembles Chinese massage in the disciplined manner in which it focuses on the energy meridians though these are not nearly so well defined as those which guide the practitioner of Tuina. The energy meridians of Thai massage are called "sen". According to the old theory which was recorded in the Pali language, there are seventy-two thousand of these sen lines but thankfully, modern Thai massage works on only about 10 of these! The aim of Thai massage is to balance the energy of the body to give a feeling of relation and well-being which transcends to purely physical to affect the mind and emotions and even the spiritual aspects of our being.

The theory is that perfect balance of the intrinsic energies of the body equates to perfect health. This form of massage when received regularly, performs a powerful prophylactic function as well as maintaining good health. Those who are lucky enough to experience Thai massage in this way will testify to its incredible ability to de-stress the body; to soothe and calm the mind and to lift and release layer upon layer of pent-up negative emotions and liberate the soul.
Until recent times Thai massage has been regarded as having deep religious significance to the Buddhists and was exclusively practised by monks in the temples. It was seen as the physical expression of loving kindness, compassion, equanimity and vicarious joy which exemplify the four states of the mind so fundamental to the philosophy of Buddhism. When practised strictly according to these principles, Thai massage is as beneficial to the giver as it is to the receiver. Regrettably, in these modern times it is becoming more and more tainted by commercialism.
"Flowing" and "rhythmical" describes exactly the sequence of unhurried presses, stretches and twists that make up a complete Thai massage. The sheer number and variety of techniques used in a typical routine is somewhat bewildering to the learner. There are over one hundred of them! At all times the position of the masseur/ masseuse relative to the receiver is just as important as the way the particular technique is applied. Within a full massage sequence there seems to be endless nuances of tempo and pressure. There are no sharp discontinuities or sudden changes of form – one movement melts into another smoothly and harmoniously. There is never a suggestion of haste.
A Thai massage is a blend of techniques, some of which are used to apply pressure to the sen lines while others create the wonderful twists and stretches that often resemble applied yoga. Pressure is applied with feet, palms, thumbs, elbows and knees. The measured pace and flowing movement that characterises this massage belies the very deep pressure and powerful stretches that are used. The greatest benefits from this unique type of massage come to those who are able to relax to the point where they become putty in the hands of the massager. At no time should the receiver "assist" by actively helping any particular movement that is being carried out.
In an ideal situation, time would not be a significant variable and massages taking two hours or more would be the norm but in the West time is usually a constraint on such a relaxed approach. Fortunately, it is possible to do a meaningful massage in one hour but this does necessitate sacrifice of some of the frequent recapitulation, particularly of pressure techniques on the feet and legs which are so characteristic of Thai massage.
