Thai Massage – Hans-Erik Petermann

Thai Massage

The art of Nuad Phan Bo Rarn, meaning ‘ancient massage’ or ‘traditional massage’ is practised around the world today, and is prized as an effective form of therapeutic bodywork. “Thai Massage” combines yoga stretching, exercise movement and meditation with elements of acupressure and reflexology. The Northern style is more relaxing, gentle and less ‘painful’ with the emphasis more on stretching, whereas the Southern style relies more on pressure point massage, which is harder and stronger. “Thai Massage” has a technical repertoire of hundreds of movements, stretches and manipulations. The book presents a shortened, standardized version of a traditional full, Northern-style massage (which can last for 3-4 hours). This standard routine is aimed at providing a sense of relaxation and general well-being.
