How Steam Helps You DetoxifyHeat experienced during a Steamy Wonder™ treatment speeds up the chemical processes in the body, making it one of the most simple and comfortable ways to rid the body of accumulated toxins. As the pores open up and the million of sweat glands start to excrete, the body rids itself of metabolic and other waste products. Sweat contains almost the same elements of urine, as for this reason the skin is sometimes called the third kidney.
Regular sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of carcinogenic metals (lead, mercury, zinc, nickel and cadium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulferic acid and cholesterol.
Sweating is such an effective de-toxifier that some physicians recommend home saunas to supplement kidney machines. Sweat also draws out lactic acid which causes stiff muscles and contributes to general fatigue.

What is Nuad Bo-Rarn/ Thai yoga massage ?
Thai massage is beneficial for both giver an d receiver, providing a relaxing yoga-like experience and utilizing leverage over muscular work. This makes it easy on the hands, and therapeutic for both parties. It is warm and interactive, normally done on a floor mat but very applicable to table work. The stretching, palming, and thumb pressing characteristic of thai massage leaves clients feeling amazing for a long time afterward.
The thai work Nuad is usually translated into English as "massage." Bo-rarn is translated as "ancient". So, Nuad Bo-Rarn means "ancient massage", or "ancient healing way". However, thai massage is very different from the type of tissue manipulation which is usually associated with massage in the context of western practice.
Nuad bo-rarn is a key component of Traditional Thai Medicine, a holistic approach to healing the the body, heart-mind, and spirit. Thai medicine strives to treat the underlying cause of any illness by addressing imbalances. Each aspect affects others, so the most effective treatment addresses the whole person. Traditional thai medicine encompasses the use of herbs, diet, nutrition, spiritual practices, and nuad bo-rarn.
How is it done?
As in any country, regional variations occur all over Thailand. There is not only one way to correctly do nuad bo-rarn, but rather many ways, depending on the background and perspective of one's teacher, even in Thailand. Nuad bo-rarn has been influenced over the course of thai history by the culture and beliefs of indigenous peoples, shamanic spiritual practices, yoga influences from India, and medical practices of China and the west (particularly Europe and the US). There are, however, common practices to the work.
Traditionally, thai massage is performed on a mat on the floor rather than a raised table. This allows for many movements and procedures that are not practical or effective in table work. Being on the floor allows for the most effective use of the practitioner's body weight rather than muscular force for the transmission of pressure, force, or energy, which creates a highly therapeutic effect. The client remains fully clothed except for the feet. Clothing should be light and allow for flexible movement.
The work itself consists primarily of pressure on energy lines and points, and a large variety of passive stretching movements. Pressure is exerted with the palms of the hand, the thumbs and the feet; at some points the elbows or knees may be used. The pressure and stretching movements are combined in a comprehensive strategy that may be performed in as little time as an hour, or may be extended to two or three hours for a full program. Two hours is frequently considered an ideal length of time for a thai massage, although in the west, 90 minutes is also common.
The stretching movements in nuad bo-rarn affect the entire body by increasing flexibility, releasing both deep and superficial tension, and helping the body's natural energy to flow more freely. The effect of these stretching movements, in which the client plays only a passive role, is similar to yoga. This is sometimes referred to as passive yoga. The result is an opening of the body which leaves one feeling both relaxed and energized at the same time.
Nuad bo-rarn is not based on a western system of anatomy. Dissection was forbidden until the introduction of western medicine, so references to body structure were based on external observation. This is not to say that this implies an understanding of the body which is superficial: quite the contrary, it is profound, based on generations of experience. Although this may initially be frustrating to the western student, learning to "think Thai" helps one to move with greater freedom and intuitive sense.
In the thai view, what we might call 'life force' in the body (sometimes described as wind or lom) travels along pathways knows as Sen lines. These sen channels appear roughly similar to both traditional Chinese medicine and Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Ayurvedic, and Thai medicine, traditionally recognize 72,000 sen in theory. In practice, ten sen serve as the foundation of nuad bo-rarn.
The true origins of traditional thai massage are somewhat buried in the past. It is usually attributed to being over 2500 years old, starting at the time of the Buddha in India. Tradition tells us that it was given to the world by a physician in India who was a contemporary of the Buddha. His name is Shivago Komarpaj (or Jivaka Buccha Komar), and throughout southeast Asia he is considered to be the father of medicine. He is lovingly and respectfully referred to as the "Father Doctor". Ancient texts, written in the Pali language and mentioning Shivago Komarpaj, were considered sacred and were kept with other Buddhist texts. It has been thought that certain monks (or reusis) were the practitioners of this medicine, and the temples were its home.
