Traditional Thai Yoga Massage – called Nuad Bo-Rarn – has been added to the Unesco list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This list seeks to recognise things that are important to preserve for future generations.

It is the first time a massage technique has been acknowledged by the Unesco. (Unesco is the United Nations’ agency for education, culture, and science.)

Nuad Thai massage is regarded as part of the art, science, and culture of traditional Thai healthcare.
As a non-medicinal remedy and manual therapy, it involves bodily manipulation in which the practitioner helps rebalance the patient’s body, energy, and structure to treat illnesses.
Nuad Thai has its roots in self-care in Thai peasant society of the past; every village had massage healers whom villagers would turn to when they had muscle aches from working in the field.
Over time, these experiences have evolved into a formal system of knowledge, and Nuad Thai is now an income-generating occupation.
