Thai Yoga Massage
What is Thai Yoga Massage?
Thai Yoga massage is an ancient healing art with origins in Ayurvedic Medicine, Yoga and Buddhism. It can be traced back more than 2,500 years to its creator Doctor Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, a famous Ayurvedic physician from India. It has evolved into a unique combination of deep stretching, rhythmic compression, soft-tissue manipulation, gentle rocking, energy balancing, and acupressure.
What to Expect in a Session
A Thai Yoga massage session is conducted on a massage table. Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The client remains fully clothed in loose pants and a comfortable shirt, allowing ease of movement and flexibility. A session consists of dynamic and fluid combinations of techniques that move, stretch and twist the client while they are positioned on their back, front, and side.
