ABOUT THAI MASSAGE
Thai yoga massage uses martial arts moves, rhythmic motion, palming and thumbing along energy lines, gentle stretching, and breath work to create a slow, flowing dance around and with the recipients body. In addition to stretching and toning the muscles, Thai Yoga Massage improves circulation, relieves muscular tension, helps expedite metabolism, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically, inducing a calm mental state. This practice provides a physical and an energetic massage.
THE THAI MASSAGE
Thai work incorporates the stimulation of the meridian system of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
This ancient, dynamic practice helps to provide shifts of rejuvenation, opening up the flow of chi in the body.
A combination of meridian (or sen line) stimulation is coupled with gravity-induced passive stretches and expertly applied pulling of tension areas and limbs. It has an immediacy that can center you, offering whole-body integration and prolonged relaxation.
