Nuad Phaen Boran?

Nuat = massage
Phaen = manner

Nuad Phaen Boran is short for the longer "Phaen Boran Ráksãa Thaang Nûat Thai". This may be loosely translated as "the traditional methods of hands-on healing of the Thai people" or Traditional Thai Massage, Thai Yoga Massage

There are 2 styles: Wat Po(South) and Chang Mai (North). The northern-style Thai massage, Buntautuk style, Old Medicine Hospital Of Chang Mai Style, is the style used by Chan Thai.

Nuat Phaen Boran is a massage that involves stretching and deep massage. The massage recipient changes into pajamas and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor. The massage giver leans on the recipient's body using hands and forearms to apply firm rhythmic pressure to almost every part of the receiver's body. The massage generally follows the Sen Energy lines on the body (the Sen are comparable to Chinese meridians). In some gestures, the legs and feet of the giver are used to fixate the body or limbs of the recipient. In other gestures, hands fixate the body, while the feet do the massaging action. Usually no oil is applied, but sometimes a hot herbal compress is used to warm and sooth the receiver's body.
A full course of Thai massage typically lasts two hours or more, and includes pulling fingers, toes, ears etc., cracking the knuckles, walking on the recipient's back, arching the recipient's back in a rolling action etc. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage.


Although, Thai Ayurveda and traditional medicine originates in Tibet , China and in India, Nuat Phaen Boran is primarily local to the northern Chiangmai area. The original and oldest running school for Nuat Boran is "The Old Medicine School" or Shivago Komarpai School and Buntautuk Hospital Massage Program. The founder was the famous Grand Master of Traditional Thai Ayurvedic Medicine, Aachan Sintorn Chaichgun. Aacharn Sintorn presided over daily classes for over 30 years until his death in 2005. His family and elder sons Suthat and Wasson carry on to the present day.

It was believed that the massage art was brought over to Thailand by Jivaka Kumar Baccha, known in Thailand as Dr Shivago, a contemporary of Buddha some 2500 years ago.
