Vedic Thai Massage: Nuad Boran Home Study Course with Mukti Michael Buck
Nuad boran is a type of bodywork also referred to as Thai yoga massage. It’s a practice that involves Thai massage, a series of stretching positions, and deep tissue massage.
Vedic Thai massage, also called Southeast Asian physiotherapy, is a form of nuad boran. It is a practice involving rhythmic compressions of the therapist’s feet, hands, palms, elbows, forearms, and fingers on the client’s body. The body is also stretched in various positions and disciplined using controlled breathing.
The purpose of Vedic Thai massage is to establish within the client’s body a balance or an equilibrium of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual elements. Vedic Thai massage is beneficial for a variety of physical and emotional conditions, and is a complementary therapy that can be used in conjunction with other holistic treatments.
