I studied Traditional Thai Medicine extensively for 10 years. Thai medicine is similar to Chinese medicine in that it is based on an elemental theory. This means that the entire medical model is formed around seeing, knowing, and working with the elements found in both nature and our bodies. Earth, water, fire, wind, and space. To know nature is to know the human body because they are one in the same. Here in this tradition, I learned the arts of working the energy lines of the body, deep tissue massage, stretching, cupping, scraping, and meditation techniques.
