Thai Massage, in practice for over 2500 years, is based on the Ayurvedic
principles of balancing one's energy. In both eastern and western
healing systems, the idea of maintaining balance or equilibrium in the
body is the key to good health. Thai Massage is based on the idea that
there are energy lines, or Sen lines, that run through the body.
These Sen are the passage for energy - and it is now known that the lines
correspond with blood vessels in the body. When these Sen lines become
blocked, the energy becomes stagnant and the body loses its balance, allowing
disease to set in.
In Thai Massage, stretching, energy work and acupressure
are used to open energy channels, allowing the body to rebalance and thus
heal itself. Applying pressure to points along the energy lines combined
with gentle rocking, compression, and elongating the muscles with yoga-like
stretches serves to relax tight muscles and open stiff joints, allowing
energy to flow with less obstruction.

The The Fine Art of Thai Massage (TMT) was founded with the intent
to pass on the fundamental techniques necessary to give a therapeutic
and healing massage.
At Thai Massage Therapy we feel it is important our students understand
how to apply massage techniques in a rhytmic and meditative way.
Students are taught how to work from their centers, keeping their own bodies
relaxed. With this in mind, the many steps and postures of Thai Massage
therapy are taught and practised until the students develop a feeling
of confidence in their abilities to perform the massage on their own.
Thai Massage is not a complicated form of therapy, but it can be stressful
on the practitioner's body if the body is off balance. At TMT, we make
sure that students use their bodies with efficiency and it is relaxing
for both the client and therapist.
The founder of Thai Massage Therapy, Therdchai Chumphoopong, known to his students
as Mac, was born into massage. Mac's mother is a massage therapist
and has been using the healing art of Thai Massage all of her life. At
the age of seventeen, Mac began his formal study at the Foundation of
Dr. Shivagakomarpaj Old Medicine Hospital in Chiangmai. After completing
his education there, he stayed to teach and practice for three years. Mac
went on to teach at the International Training Massage school for
five years. Mac's mother, Pensri, studied and worked at the Old Medicine
Hospital for many years.
Mac, his mother, father and brother work together at TMT to create a
personal and direct atmosphere for the students. The classes are small,
allowing each student to receive personal attention and instruction.
