Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient and therapeutic healing art that has been practiced for over 2,500 years, to maintain health and vitality. This form of massage fluidly combines acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic Principles, yoga-like stretches, joint mobilization, muscle compression and energy work. Thai massage works off the belief that tightened muscles lead to the diminished flow of energy in your body. When energy can’t flow freely, you become inflexible, suffer pain and feel stiff. Over time, this leads to shortened muscles and connective tissue that affects your posture, immunity and organ function — all of which speed up aging and disability.
A typical massage is performed on a cushioned floor mat with the client wearing comfortable clothing. The practitioner can use their whole body, hands, feet, thumbs, knees and elbows, combined with conscious touch, breathing and rhythmic touch. Much of the focus is along the energy meridians (called Sen lines in Thai Massage). The process is extremely meditative and clients report feeling ‘longer’, ‘expanded’, ‘looser’ and ‘deeply relaxed’.
