Thai Yoga Massage

What is Thai Yoga Massage?

Thai Yoga Massage has been practiced in Thailand for centuries and is the combination of passive yoga stretching, acupressure, and energy meridian work.  Throughout a Thai Yoga Massage session, the therapist’s focus is on Metta, which means loving kindness, and this positive energy is passed on to the recipient during the massage.

Receiving a Thai Yoga Massage

Thai Yoga Massage is a treatment that uses no oils or lotions, and the massage is done on a mat on the floor with the recipient wearing stretchable clothing.  Thai Yoga Massage can be modified to fit a wide range of physical needs and abilities.

There are many ways that Thai Yoga Massage stimulates the body’s natural healing process:

  • increases range of motion
  • relaxes the nervous system
  • relieves pain
  • improves muscular tone
  • increases circulation
  • helps repair overused muscles
  • maximizes lymphatic drainage to detox the body and improve the immune system
  • balances energetic flow throughout the body
