Thai Yoga Massage
This modality is an ancient form of bodywork from Thailand. Thai Yoga is done on a futon and the client wears loose clothing. It combines passive stretching, acupressure, gentle rocking, rhythmic compressions, and warm herbal compresses. The purpose is to open up the blood flow and energy flow of the body, increase flexibility, decrease joint pain, lengthen muscles, and bring an energized calm to the client.
During a Thai Yoga Massage the receiver wears loose clothing and the techniques include: reflexology, acupressure, passive stretching, energy work, and aromatherapy. The aromatherapy is given through steamed herbal compresses which are pressed along the receiver’s body. These medicinal herbal packs include many different herbs and flowers that warm the body’s core leaving the client refreshed and rejuvenated.
Thai Massage can prevent injuries! Most injuries involve damage to muscle fibers, myofascia or tendons and are caused from the muscles being shortened from overuse, which instigates them not to work properly. Thai Massage works to lengthen muscles giving your body more flexibility and in return allows them to be functionally balanced. For muscles that are already injured Thai Massage speeds up healing and restores muscles to normal pain-free function. These benefits of Thai Yoga Massage will enhance the quality of life, because a flexible body is one of the keys to being pain free.
