Nuad Boran (known in various forms as Thai Bodywork/Massage, Thai Yoga Therapy, and other terms) is an ancient form of therapeutic bodywork first practiced over 2500 years ago in what was then Siam. It is thought to have been developed by the famous doctor, Shivago Komarpaj, who was the personal physician of the Buddha. It was used to help prepare the Buddhist monks and nuns for their daily meditation. In addition, it was part of traditional medical treatment which also included herbal medicine, nutritional and food cures, and spiritual practice. Based on healing principles similar to those utilized in other non-western healing therapies, the Thai system focuses on circulation of vital energy in major pathways called sen. The major energy lines are manipulated, and important pressure points along these pathways are stimulated to help break down blockages, stimulate energy flow and restore balance and harmony.
