Thai yoga massage
Thai yoga massage is an ancient form of therapeutic bodywork which combines acupressure and applied yoga stretching. It is a full body therapy which which relieves muscular tension, calms the nervous system and balances energy in the body. Treatments are carried out on a futon or a mat on the floor. You are asked to wear comfortable clothing to receive the treatment that you can move easily in. At its essence Thai yoga massage is a practice of “metta” or loving kindness and becomes a moving meditation for therapist and receiver.
Thai Yoga massage works on the notion that there is a system of energy lines (known as sen lines) in the body. When blockages appear along these lines the energy is unable to flow freely and this effects our health and wellbeing. Over a session, or course of sessions ,we will work on releasing blockages and restoring the free flowing energy as well as particular “problematic” or tense areas. Thai yoga massage is great for people looking to deeply relax, support their general wellbeing and relieve any aches, pains and tension in the body. Clients I work with have reported particular benefits for a number of ailments and health conditions including headaches, stress and anxiety, insomnia, ibs and digestive issues, endometriosis and back pain.
These treatments are tailored to you. We’ll work with a pressure and depth that feels right for you and tune in to the natural rhythm of the body. As the body responds to the massage on a physical and energetic level we are often able to get into and release tight spots through supported yoga stretches that couldn’t be accessed by massage alone. Thai Yoga Massage has the nickname “lazy man’s yoga” as many of the benefits of a yoga session are experienced with no effort required of the receiver
Pregnancy thai yoga massage
Thai Yoga Massage is fantastic during pregnancy. The massage is carried out fully clothed with you lying on your side to be able to treat your whole body, including back, whilst supported by bolsters and cushions. The treatment will be tailored to you to meet your body's needs and the stage of pregnancy you are at. It is very beneficial for back pain, sciatica, reducing discomfort and deep relaxation and rejuvenation at any stage of your pregnancy.
