Thai Massage in Amsterdam and what is traditional Thai Massage
Nowadays you will find real Thai massage around the corner from your street in Amsterdam.
Thai massage is a medical and also spiritual ancient healing art. The foundation of this custom was laid in ancient Thailand (also known as Siam). It arises from a combination of influences. From traditional Chinese medicine, but also Ayurvedic medicine from India and Buddhist traditions. The Ayurvedic concept is that a disease first arises in the mind. When the mind receives not much attention, disease can settle in the body. Ayurveda proclaims that the body obeys the mind.
In Thailand, Thai massage is considered energy and body therapy. One looks at the whole individual with the conviction that all matters of body, mind and spirit are closely related. The imbalance in one area leads to imbalances in other areas.
Difference Thai and Western massage
Western massage is often focusing on a specific problem, while Thai massage always works on the whole body to improve it’s entire well being. A Thai massage therapist uses hands, elbows, knees and feet, while Western massage mainly consists of kneading muscles. Much attention is paid to how a person leads his life and how to deal with obstacles and pitfalls.

All these questions will be discussed and you will have the opportunity to reflect on them. Answers to these questions often lead to special insights. These insights help you to create necessary change in your life.
The treatment is tailored to the client’s situation. Exercises and assignments for home are also part of this. Therefore, Thai massage both treats both the body and mind, creating a new healthy habit that brings life more into balance.
