The massage practices in the Mekong Delta are influenced by Traditional Chinese Medicine practices of Tui Na and Qigong brought to Can Tho by South Chinese traders who settled in the delta already in the 18th century. Other influences are massage practices of nearby Thailand.

The Chinese Tui Na Massage is a form of massage akin to acupressure (from which shiatsu evolved). Choreography often involves thumb presses, rubbing, percussion, and stretches [1]. One branch of qigong (Qìgōng, 气功 or 氣功) is qigong massage, in which the practitioner combines massage with other techniques [2].

Thai Massage is a combination of influences from Indian, Chinese, Southeast Asian cultural spheres and traditions of medicine. The founder of Thai massage and medicine is said to have been Shivago Komarpaj (ชีวกโกมารภัจจ์ Jīvaka Komarabhācca), who is said in the Pāli Buddhist Canon to have been the Buddha’s physician over 2,500 years ago. The art as it is practiced today is likely to be the product of a 19th century synthesis of various healing traditions. Even today, there is considerable variation throughout South East Asia.
