Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is an interactive, comprehensive, and restorative style of bodywork. Sometimes referred to as 'assisted yoga', Thai Yoga Massage incorporates elements of yoga, stretching, breathing, acupressure, and rhythmic compression along energy lines. It is deeply relaxing and grounding, yet also energizing and therapeutic.
My clients who have received Thai Massage often report they feel invigorated and refreshed. Thai Massage flushes your system and I prefer it over any other style because I can see my clients have an increased range of motion, decreased pain, and a fresh glow in their cheeks from increased circulation in the body - with the effects lasting beyond the week of service.
Many patients use Thai Massage as a way of self-maintenance rather than for an acute symptom. I feel this is the best use of the treatment as it enhances your life on a regular basis. There are 8765 hours in a year and I am recommending less than 16 hours of that time to increase optimization of your health. I recommend 90 minutes of Thai Massage every three weeks for health maintenance and truly believe it will have a profound effect on the quality of your life.
Among the benefits of Traditional Thai Yoga Massage are:
- Reduced pain from acute or chronic injuries
- Better sleep
- Faster recovery time from exercise-related soreness
- Decreased stress and anxiety
- Increased energy
- Increased motivation to practice self-care
After years of practice I have found that the greatest benefit results from a hybridization which may include moist heat, oils, acupuncture and lineaments.
Appropriate clothing is provided. The bodywork I teach and practice is done on a comfortable, heated massage table.
