The list of both clinical and anecdotal benefits and medicinal claims for Traditional Thai Medicine, Traditional Thai Massage and derivatives is quite long.  In one article I posted I listed over 40 clinically verifiable and an equal number of traditionally ascribing healing benefits.

Thai Yoga Reduces Psychological Stress

Thai Yoga reduces psychological stress

By Anthony B. James DNM(P), ND(T), MD(AM), DPHC(h.c.), PhD, DOM, RAC, SMOKH Academic Dean SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine and Thai Yoga Center (SCNM).

It is a consistent and long held belief among Thai Yoga Practitioners and clients alike that receiving sessions and programs reduces and or eliminates stress symptoms. Therapy protocols and healing programs based on this indigenous, traditional, natural medicine originally from Thailand emphasize relaxation techniques including therapeutic prayers (Puja), Focused breathing (Prana Yama), Yoga Asana (therapeutic postures) delivered in a calm and nurturing way. Traction and decompression techniques coupled with broad, deep compression applied with a rhythmic pacing further add to the result. Circulation of all vital body fluids is enhanced as well as lymphatic decongestion. All of this is incredibly helpful for stress.
