Thai yoga massage is a type of massage that primarily focuses on manual therapy, myofascial techniques, neuro muscular therapy, and trigger point treatments. The combination of the techniques used in Thai yoga massage result in a uniquely effective treatment that has been used to treat many different ailments.
Thai yoga massage has evolved from 2000 year old traditional Thai massage which was frequently used to promote healing, treat illness and maintain health.
Thai yoga massage consists of a deep, full body treatment from the feet up. The massage is done using gentle, flowing movements. Instead of laying stationary on a table such as you would do with many other types of massage you will wear loose clothing and start on the floor. Thai yoga massage involves your body being moved, loosened, and stretched by the masseur. As the muscles and joints are worked, the flow of energy throughout your body is reawakened. Thai yoga massage also includes acupressure on the energy lines of the body in order to harmonize and energize you. The masseur will use their hands, feet and elbows to provide you with this ultimate massage experience.
The unique combination of yoga, meditation, acupressure and reflexology takes Thai yoga massage to the next level of massages. There are many physical, mental and psychological benefits to this style of massage.
Physically you will experience detoxification of your body, a boost to your immune system, increased blood circulation and lower blood pressure. Due to the massage being infused with yoga, you will also increase flexibility and mobility in your muscles and joints. Other physical benefits of Thai yoga massage include:
Mental benefits that you will experience include greater mental clarity and focus, improved concentration and a general sense of greater well-being. Psychological effects such as reduced stress and anxiety, increased energy level and stamina, and higher energy levels are also a great benefit to this style of massage.
