Thai Healing Alliance Goals & Objectives

With respect and gratitude to the Thai people and Thai culture, and to encourage the understanding and practice of traditional Thai healing arts throughout the world, THAI supports students, practitioners and teachers of traditional Thai healing arts. These disciplines include nuad boran, known in various forms as traditional Thai Massage, Thai Yoga Massage, and Thai Yoga Therapy.  THAI also recognizes Thai herbal medicine traditions (Thai herbal compresses, Thai element theory, Thai herbal therapies), and related Thai folk healing arts.

The goals and objectives of the Alliance are:

a) To raise awareness of traditional Thai healing arts and to distinguish them from other therapies such as Chinese medicine, Indian Ayurvedic medicine, Western medicine, Western massage, and modern hybrid forms

 

b) To maintain the THAI online library (THAI Archives) as a free resource for anyone who wished to learn more about traditional Thai healing arts

 

c) To propose and promote guidelines and standards of study and practice for therapists and teachers of Thai healing arts throughout the world
