What is Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage or Traditional Thai Massage is a unique ancient therapeutic and powerful healing art that has been an integral part of traditional Thai medicine. With origins dating back approximately 2500 years Thai Yoga Massage provides relaxation and an overall manipulation of the physical form and structure of the body.
To produce the highly therapeutic effect on the body the energy lines are worked via pressure points along with Hatha Yoga and reflexology.
Although the main emphasis in the practice of Thai Yoga Massage is usually on health prevention it can also be of great therapeutic benefit for a range of specific problems and conditions, such as headaches, back pain, digestive disorders, shoulder and neck tension, joint pain, menstruation problems, insomnia and other stress related conditions.
What happens in a session?
Thai Yoga Massage is done on a firm futon or mat on the floor with the patient dressed in light clothes. Typically a session lasts between 1 – 2 hours.
The practitioner uses his or her thumbs, palms, elbows, knees and feet to apply a combination of acupressure, gentle rocking and twisting, joint and spine mobilizations and assisted yoga stretches. With the therapist using bodyweight instead of strength and a steady and meditative rhythm, Thai Yoga Massage looks and feels like a graceful dance between giver and receiver.
The benefits of Thai Yoga Massage are countless. By freeing the flow of vital energy in the body, Thai Massage can improve posture, breathing, flexibility, digestion and circulation. Muscles are stretched, inner organs toned, and emotional and nervous tension is reduced. Often a deep sense of peace can be experienced during and after a treatment.
