Dec 13, 2019 15:47 IST

Thailand is synonymous with massages. The traditional Thai Massage has been added to the prestigious UNESCO Heritage list! Nuad Thai is a form of massage that has been part of its culture for over 2000 years. It involves twisting and stretching the body with the help of the feet, knees and elbows to improve blood circulation and now generates large income for the country. Interestingly, the practice originated in India and has been added to UNESCO's list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
