THAI YOGA MASSAGE
Focused on wellness
Thai Yoga Massage is a traditional holistic healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures.
Its primary aim is to restore and balance the body’s energy system comprising of many energy lines that run through the body carrying vital life force and supplying the body with the energy that is necessary for its survival and healthy functioning.
Due to physical or emotional trauma, bad posture or harmful habits and beliefs this energy can get trapped or blocked, causing physical and emotional dis-ease. Thai Yoga Massage with its multitude of techniques and adjustments can release these blockages and bring the body back to its natural equilibrium where balance and well-being are present.
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.
Although the main emphasis in the practice of Thai Yoga Massage is usually on prevention (as all disease manifests first on the energy level and can be treated there before it becomes physical), 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.
Thai Yoga Massage is done on a firm mat on the floor with the client dressed in light clothes. Typically a session lasts between 1 ½ - 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 mobilisations and assisted yoga stretches.
