Thai Massage takes its origins from India where the art has been practiced for thousands of years. It was devised by the founder of traditional Thai medicine, an Indian Ayurvedic doctor known as Shivago Komarpaj. When Buddhism became established on a national level in India, monks began to spread the teachings of Buddha throughout Asia. These monks, who were trained in Ayurvedic principles, not only taught the word of Buddha but also the now legendary stories of Shivago Komarpaj, and the Ayurvedic principles. Thailand is thought to have had mainly shamanic-style healing practices prior to arrival of Buddhism.
