Thai Yoga Massage is a dynamic bodywork therapy based on yoga, ayurveda, and the martial arts. In this traditional healing system, the recipient is guided through a series of gentle yoga postures integrated with massage along the body’s energy lines. Working with gravity, breath and directed touch, the Thai Massage practitioner creates a harmonious and therapeutic “dance” characteristic of Tai Chi, that imparts physical vibrancy and deep inner peace. Together these actions help to relieve muscular tension, improve circulation, boost the immune system and balance the body energetically.
Thai Yoga Massage is performed on a thin mat on the floor in loose, comfortable clothing. Sometimes described as “assisted Hatha yoga”, the recipient is also receiving the benefits of the practice of yoga. The Thai Massage practitioner uses her hands, feet, arms and legs to gently guide the recipient into various yoga postures while remaining focused and centered. It is this focus that is grounded in the practice of “metta” or loving kindness that allows both the “giver” and “receiver” to open fully to the healing flow of energy.
