Theravada massage is the meeting of Chinese massage, shiatsu, some asanas (postures) of yoga, and Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Introduced in Asia for centuries, the Chinese returned to Cambodia during the eighth century BC, the same time as the Buddha’s disciples brought to the Theravada tradition.
The technique is used to stimulate energy points, the system of ten “sen” on 72,000 Prana Nadis which in Indian medicine, make up the energy envelope of the body. There are also known points in Chinese acupuncture. Combining stretching and pressure, it makes the body’s energy balance by acting on the muscles, ligaments, joints, bones, connective tissue and organs.
