What is Thai Yoga Massage?


[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This art form originated in India over 2,500 years ago as part of the Ayurvedic Preventative Health Care system. When the Buddha travelled through South-East Asia, mainly Thailand with his personal practioners, the Thai people adapted and evolved the massage into what is known as ‘Thai Massage’. Discovered by westerners in the 1970’s, this massage has once again evolved to suit our western lifestyle and we have honoured it’s traditional Indian roots by renaming the techniques, ‘Thai Yoga Massage’.

A Thai Yoga Massage sequence utilizes yoga postures, passive stretching, acupressure, energy work, massage and meditation to assist clients in reducing tension, enhancing flexibility, experiencing deep relaxation and improving overall wellbeing.

Thai Yoga Massage is received fully clothed on a large supportive mat. There are no oils or lotions used for this style of massage. Techniques are performed on client’s hands, arms, shoulders, head, face, neck, back, feet, legs, glutes and abdomen. Suggested attire for receiving your massage are comfortable, stretchy yoga tights or baggy pants and a short or long sleeved t-shirt and clean cotton socks. During winter, the Thai Yoga Massage mat is heated for your comfort and blankets are provided. Before the massage begins, the practitioner will welcome you to the space and ask you to complete a registration and consent form. The techniques will be explained, duration of massage confirmed and a discussion regarding your state of health or injuries as well as your desired outcome and preferred pressure will ensure you are well-cared for during your massage and any customization of techniques will be included.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
