Thai yoga massage is an ancient healing system combining acupressure with assisted yoga postures.
In traditional Thai yoga massage, the recipient remains clothed while the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create a dance of movement on the body, which is part massage and part assisted yoga. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, physical and mental wellbeing.
Treatments take place on a heated futon on the floor. Please dress as you would for an exercise class in soft, stretchy, comfortable clothes.
