Thai Yoga Massage

What is Thai Yoga Massage?

Thai yoga massage is a unique style of massage based on the principles of compassion. It consists of many techniques such a leaning pressure, reflexology, energy line work, blood stopping, stretching and yoga. Therapists use many parts of their body when performing Thai massage such as palms, thumbs, feet, elbows, forearms and knees. The receiver is moved through a wide variety of postures that can be safely modified to be as gentle or intense to suit the clients needs. Clients can be either lying on their back (supine), stomach (prone), on their side, inverted or seated. The work is done on a mat on the floor with the client wearing loose comfortable clothing.

History

Thai yoga massage is based on yoga and Ayurveda healing principles dating back over 2,500 years. It originated in India with the spread of Buddhism, to Southeast Asia and then to Thailand. The founding father, Juvaka Kumarbhaccha, was a celebrated yogi and Ayurvedic doctor who introduced, practiced and taught Thai massage techniques and customs in Thailand. Over the past decade, an increasing amount of Westerners have traveled to Thailand to learn this beautiful unique art to develop a healing fusion of cultures to be taught around the world.

How does it work?

The goal of Thai massage is to manipulate and stimulate the energy lines that run through the body. In doing this, we can release the blocked energy and allow it to flow smoothly again, thereby stimulating all of the systems of the body, encouraging each system to function at an optimal level.  After a Thai massage you may feel taller, lighter, stronger, healthier and clear minded. You may also  experience an overall sense of well-being and a boost of energy that is not usually felt with other types of massages.
