The historical roots of Thai massage reach as far as 500 BCE, into the time of Gautama Siddharta called Buddha. The legendary founder of Thai massage is considered to be the doctor from northern India, Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha (Shivago Komarpaj in Thai), Buddha’s contemporary. He is honored by many Thais as the „Father of Medicine“. He based the techniques of thai massage on the principles of Ayurveda - the Indian therapeutic and medical system.
Our clients often ask us, how long thai massage we could recommend. Thai people love long massages. If a Thai massage should pass completely through the entire body, from 2 to 2 ½ hours are needed. Prague thai massage parlors offer thai massages from 30 min to 2 hours. Length of 30 minutes we could recommend only if you are in need of massage, but you really can not afford longer massage because of time deficiency. For Prague or European people we recommend 90 minutes Thai massage.
