Born in India, this is one of the oldest massage methods, which became widely known through the work of the Thai Dr. Shivago. It centers on the ten energy lines of the body (sen lines) and is applied with the thumbs, fingers, palms, elbows and feet. It is considered more potent than other forms of massage and is performed with no oil, while the recipient remains clothed. It is for those who make greater demands on their bodies, such as athletes. Thai massage coupled with other types of massage can have spectacular results, though it is known as the "lazy man's yoga" for reasons you can easily find out in just one session.
