Thai Yoga Massage is the healing art of the people of Thailand. When traveling to Thailand, if you were to go to a clinic you would be just as likely to be prescribed Thai Massage for your ailment as a medicinal tincture.
Credited for the creation of Thai Yoga Massage is Doctor Shivago Komarpj from northern India. Dr Shivago is said to have been both a friend and personal physician to the Buddha. Most of the records of the use of Thai Massage was lost during the Burmese attack on Ayutthia in 1767 and it wasn't until WWII did the influx of travel to Thailand bring the modality into the modern world, reaching the United States in the late 1980's.
