Thailand – Finding inspiration in the deeper roots of Thai Culture

The history of Thailand dates back to the first truly independent Thai kingdoms of Lan Na and Sukhothai. The kingdoms established highly developed societies in the north and central regions of Thailand in the 13th and 14th centuries.

Founded by Khun Pha Muang and Khun Bang Klang Thao in 1238, SukhoThai emerged as a dominant force in the 13th century. It was so named by its rulers to be the ‘the dawn of happiness’.

The SukhoThai period is often considered the golden era of Thai history. In addition to developing some of the most beautiful Thai art, the SukhoThai kingdom is credited with research behind foot massages.
These much celebrated Thai foot massages have been one of the most effective and revered form of massage practices across the world.
