Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage combines the use of acupressure and gentle stretching to help release muscle tension and improve mobility in the body. Often referred to as “the lazy man’s yoga”, the practitioner guides the client through various passive (assisted) stretches and range of motion work. These are interspersed with pressure along the body’s “Sen” energy lines which relax muscles and enhance the flow of internal energy.
Thai Massage is an ancient healing system that evolved in Thailand over 2000 years ago. Its roots trace back to the origins of Buddhism in Siam (premodern Thailand), and further back to the traditions of Yogic and Ayurvedic medicine in India, 2500 years ago.
