What Is this Book about?
This book is about the past, present, and future of Traditional Thai Massage.
We cover the immense changes Thai Massage has been going through since the 1950s. Key to all these changes is a renewed local awareness of Thailand’s cultural heritage, and an increasing interest of the international community in general, and of the West in particular, for traditional medicines and healing arts.
Thai Massage today looks very different compared to seventy years, or even twenty or ten years ago, and the changes follow each other up in a maddening speed both for treatments and training, but also for our knowledge about the history and the conceptual backgrounds.
We discuss the ancient history of Thai Massage, contemporary history, the traditional styles, the shifting perspectives and directions taken in the last seventy years up to now, and the rise of new Thai Massage modalities, blends, integrations and hybrids.
We look at the changes in Thailand, but also how other countries, notably the West, have embraced Thai Traditional Massage, at the same time taking it into entirely new directions.
