Thai Yoga Massage is more active than regular massage and is performed on a large, thick, sheet-covered floor mat. The client remains fully clothed and no oil is used. It is sometimes described as “lazy yoga” – both relaxing and energizing at the same time.The main focus of Thai Yoga Massage is helping to attain or regain ‘balance’ in the flow of energy in the body, including the nervous, digestive, and respiratory systems.
The true practice of the art of healing in traditional Thai Massage is the compassionate intent of the healer. The Buddhist spiritual practices associated with Thai Massage cultivate humility, awareness, and concentration in the healer designed to bring the practitioner to a deeper level of awareness and relaxation of herself and the client. This compassionate state of being is termed “metta”, which usually translates as “loving kindness”.
Thai Yoga Massage is suited for people of all ages and all walks of live. During the practice, the client is completely passive and the practitioner does all the work. Some people find it so relaxing that they fall asleep during the massage. Thai Yoga Massage session may be modified to be as gentle or intense to suit every individual needs. The practitioner adjusts to client level of flexibility and fitness and to specific individual needs. Mild, firm or strong touch techniques are applied to create a powerful, singular, healing experience. Most clients feel more physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually balanced immediately after the session.
Thai Massage (or Thai Yoga) session is so relaxing, that your body, mind and spirit will be returned to a balance state when self-healing process will happen.
Thai Massage feels different from other forms of bodywork. The main focus is given to the circulation of vital energy in major energy pathways. The practitioner will use their hands, feet, knees,and elbows to help break down blockages and stimulate the free energy flow in the body. Thai Massage is done is slow motion when one technique smoothly changes to the next one. During the session there are no sudden changes of speed and rhythm.
