Thai Massage is an ancient art. I’ts a mix of traditional Chinese medicine and India buddhism techniques… It is believed that Thai massage have been developed by a Buddha physician, in India 2,500 years ago, his name was Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage.
I get an hour of massage at least 1 time the week, but some people claim that the best massages techniques come from blind people. So I said to give it a try and I went to TBMI (Thai Blind Massage Institute) here in Pattaya. Blind people have been trained to massage and have “seeing hands”.
In my opinion Thai blind massage is stronger and more intense massage than usual. They told me that this is due to their heightened sense of touch. The massage was realy good, I was satisfied. Please note that the masseurs are not always completely blind.
