Thai Yoga Massage
What is Thai Yoga Massage?
Thai Yoga Massage is said to have been developed 2500 years ago by Jivaka Kumarbhaccha, an Ayurvedic doctor. It includes elements of Chinese medicine, reflexology, yoga and ayurveda. Thai Yoga Massage is a dynamic form of bodywork in which the practitioner moves the client in a variety of yoga-like positions while stretching, rocking and compressing their muscles in each pose. It is also an energetic practice of Metta (Loving Kindness) in order to encourage the development of positive, healing energy in both the practitioner and client. The practitioner works along the Sen lines (energy lines of the body) to open the flow of energy and general circulation, affecting health on all levels - mental, physical, and emotional.
Clients experience the luxury of letting go and being nurtured and supported as the practitioner gently and safely guides their whole body through a series of fluid movements, applying rhythmic compression and acupressure where needed. Thai Yoga Massage improves circulation, flexibility, muscular tension, immunity and peace of mind. Ultimately the client gains more than relaxation; they gain a broader understanding of functional ease in their body. Pregnant moms as well as people with limited mobility, even wheelchair bound can receive this beautiful bodywork as well.
The client will be fully-clothed on a mat during the Thai Yoga Massage, which will be done in Nature's Heart Yoga studio. We suggest that you dress comfortably in somewhat fitted activewear that will allow you to stretch and move. We strongly encourage you to wear long sleeves and pants.
