Thai Yoga Bodywork gives the benefits of massage, yoga, and energy work in one nurturing dance. It is an ancient healing art form practiced in Thailand.
The goal of Thai Yoga Bodywork is to release blocked energy from strategically located energy lines (known as Sen) throughout your body. Stretching, rhythmic compressions, acupressure, assisted yoga poses, and range-of-motion exercises are just a few of the techniques that will be utilized during a typical session. Energy balancing techniques are also used to encourage healing. The whole treatment is a graceful, nurturing, interactive dance that is sensitive to the condition of each person. The effect of Thai Massage is greater flexibility, flow of energy, deep relaxation, and feeling of well being. Clients often report feeling "longer," "expanded," "looser," "deeply relaxed," "refreshed" and more aware of their body. It can have therapeutic benefit for many conditions, especially tight hamstrings and general stiffness, muscular aches in low back, hips, and shoulders, as well as mild rheumatoid arthritis. The deep relaxation and energy work impart a long-lasting afterglow of well-being. A great aid in both recovering and maintaining good health!
The art of Thai Yoga Bodywork achieves a deep therapeutic effect without harsh physical force through efficient use of movement, breathing, and rhythm. Since it is given on a floor mat with the client fully clothed, practitioners can use their whole body in leverage and interactive work as they move and rock the client into various positions, apply rhythmic compression pressure as well as some cross-fiber stroking of muscle and tendons. The treatment can be gentle and is adjustable to suit most clients, young or not-so-young, athlete or spectator.
