Thai Massage follows the Buddhist teaching that a human being is composed of four aggregates, “Panca Khanda”, namely: feelings, recognition, thought and consciousness. Every human is born on the foundation of these aggregates and is composed of four elements: earth, water, wind and fire. All four elements are interrelated and must be balanced. The Earth element represents 20 organs and parts of the body, the water element represents 12 products of the body’s organs, the wind element circulates in 6 directions within the body, representing the blood circulation and the breath, and then the fire element heats up 4 areas of the body.
