I like to describe it as someone ‘doing’ yoga on you. You remain at rest, and the body is positioned into yoga-type positions where it is moved, massaged, twisted, and kneaded. All while focusing on deep, long inhalations and exhalations. And, dare I say it, it’s much better than a standard massage.
Thai massage is said to have been invented by Budda’s own physician, and is known as “ancient massage”. In Thailand today, it is common knowledge and practiced by all.
Recipients wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing (sweats, yoga pants, even pajamas will do in a pinch). No oil is used, The bodywork can be adjusted to specific needs, but the general sequence will relax, restore, and then invigorate the breath and energy of the body.
Benefits of a Thai Massage/Yoga Session include:
- Pain Relief
- Deep Relaxation
- Increased Energy
- Increased Circulation
- Increased Flexibility & Range of Motion
- Stress Reduction
- Reconnection of mind-body-spirit
