Traditional Thai Medicine


The history of Traditional Thai Medicine begins with the land known today as Thailand, previously known as Siam.


The origin of every traditional medicine system starts with the land and its environment- Nature.

What makes traditional systems of medicine around the world different and unique is the fact that the land, climate, plants and diseases are different and unique all around the globe.


The ancient kingdom of Siam ( nowadays Thailand), bordered south by Malaysia, West by Burma, East by Cambodia, North by Lao and right in the center of the trading route between China and India exposed the territory to many influences.


Predominantly a Buddhist culture, the primary figurehead in traditional Thai medicine is the Buddha as he is viewed as the the ultimate physician and Dhamma ( his teachings) the ultimate healing tool to eradicate suffering. So Thai Medicine is inherently Buddhist Medicine.


Thai Massage is part of one of the five branches that make Traditional Thai Medicine.


These branches are:


  • Internal Medicine ( herbology )
  • External Medicine ( Reusi Dat Ton, Thai Massage, Acupressure, Tok Sen, Scraping, medicated oils, herbal compresses, balms, liniments….)
  • – Divinatory Sciences ( palmistry, Jyothish astrology, numerology….)
  • – Spirit Medicine ( mantras, invocations, incantations, shamanism, Sak Yam, magic….)
  • – Buddhist Medicine.


These branches are weaved together by Buddhist principles and Five Element theory creating a unique, comprehensive system of healing wisdom.


As a natural medicine, it uses the Five Element theory to understand individuality and diagnose imbalances.
As a spiritual practice it incorporates the Buddhist principles of Vipassana (mindfulness) and the Four Brahamaviharas (Divine states of Mind)- Metta, Karuna, Mudita, Uppekha (loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, equanimity).

Powerful stretches and deep acupressure are applied carefully along as a fluid meditative dance creating a relaxed supported body work that allows a profound sense of space and relaxation, bringing opposites (yin/yang, solar/lunar , masculine/feminine) into union.

Join us for a 10 day tour in Northern Thailand, exploring the Heart of Thai Massage and Traditional Thai Medicine, conscious touch, non-verbal communication, meditation , prayer, ritual, mantras, Reusi Dat Ton ( Thai Yoga) and more.
