Nuad (นวด) translates as massage, rub, batter, or knead. Nuad Thai Massage is regarded as part of the art, science and culture of traditional Thai healthcare. As a non-medicinal remedy and manual therapy, it involves bodily manipulation in which the practitioner helps rebalance the patient’s body, energy and structure to treat illnesses believed to be caused by the obstruction of energy flow along “sen”, lines understood to crisscross the human body. Therapists perform a combination of manipulations using their hands, elbows, knees and feet, together with herbal hot compresses to reduce inflammation. Pressure, compression and rubbing are applied to boost blood circulation, reduce muscular soreness, and ease the aches and pains of conditions such as insomnia, depression, rheumatism, Parkinson’s, Office Syndrome, etc.
Absolutely! In 2019, Nuad Thai Massage has been added to UNESCO’s prestigious list, Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, which features traditions and practices passed across the generations. By being part of the list, Nuad Thai Massage is recognized as something worthy and requires active effort to be preserved for future generations.
Unlike conventional massages, Nuad Thai Massage involves a lot of movement and a series of different positions. Therapists use not only their hands but sometimes their forearms and knees to apply pressure. Oil is seldom involved in Nuad Thai Massage.
Just bring comfortable clothes! Nuad Thai Massage takes place on a mat on the floor or low table with clothes on.
Despite the benefits of Nuad Thai Massage, there are times when we might request clients to wait first, depending on clients’ conditions including moments immediately after having a meal, medical setbacks (such as osteoporosis and some types of cancer), or being pregnant. In addition, clients recently recovered from an accident or a bone fracture, with open wounds, or recently installed prosthetics are also encouraged to wait at least one month after surgery before receiving massages.
For more details, clients are encouraged to consult with us directly via telephone or email.
No, Nuad Thai Massage cannot replace comprehensive medical treatment or medication – BUT it can enhance and support the effectiveness of medical treatment or medication.
Our treatments utilize refined massage techniques to release stress and rejuvenate at the same time
