The origins of Thai Yoga Massage
It’s an element of traditional Thai medicine that originated in India during the time of the Buddha. The positions and the stretches utilised resemble yoga postures and through the intense concentration required during a massage both giver and receiver can immerse themselves in a deep meditative state. It also incorporates acupuncture, an intrinsic part of traditional Chinese medicine. A holistic vision of each person is taken aiming to unite the mind, body and spirit. Thai massage was introduced by Buddhist monks who arrived from India between the second and third century BCE. The founder, known as Shivagakomarpaj, was reputedly the Buddha’s personal physician. Like the Buddha’s religious texts the knowledge of Thai massage was handed down over the centuries as an oral tradition and very few written documents have survived. Today Thai massage is still received in Buddhist temples and considered to be a sacred practice. It’s part of modern Thai medicine and is used as a complimentary therapy in hospitals along with western treatments. Louis Divine

Forgot how much I ❤️ Thai yoga massage! Just had an awesome treatment with Louis Divine. Like yoga for lazy people- you don’t have to do anything and r just stretched like putty.’ Jeff, Marlow
‘Speaking as a long term practitioner of the Hatha Yoga, I have to say that the ‘Senergize’ Thai Massage Yoga was the best massage I have ever experienced! It was, as I said to Louis, ‘the lazy man’s full on yoga session without any effort whatsoever’! I found the pressure on the energy lines and points and the variety of stretching movements totally relaxing and invigorating. By the end of the massage I could feel my body’s natural energy flowing freely, all tension had dissolved and a wonderful sense of well-being pervaded my senses. It was almost a spiritual experience. I am hooked. Thank you Louis Divine!!’ Janice, London
