Thai Massage varies from the Chinese theory in the location of energy lines and points, but again involves pressure on points along these lines, stretches and movement of joints. It emphasizes work on the legs and feet, can include work done while the client is sitting cross-legged, and is considered a type of passive yoga as the practitioner places the client’s body into Yoga positions. The origins of Thai massage are not clearly known. However, it is associated with Indian traditions and has been handed down through Buddhist temples. It is now being taught and practiced in the West.
