What does Boran mean?
Boran is a Thai word meaning old, ancient or historic and was chosen to highlight the documented age of massage itself.
Massage may well be one of the oldest, trialled and tested forms of medical care. Paintings of man performing and receiving massage have been found in Thailand and as far as Egypt on their ancient tombs. The Greeks and Romans used massage as a primary form of medical treatment and China documented the benefits of massage as far back as 3,000BC.
Massage is arguably a natural instinct and the benefits of touch it seems, has always been known to man and appear across all cultures right around the world.
Here at Boran Remedial Massage we honour the documented age of this powerful and effective manual therapy, while striving to provide the best, up to date, science based massage treatments possible.
