THAI YOGA MASSAGE
ABOUT THAI YOGA MASSAGE
Traditional Thai Yoga Massage was developed over 2,500 years ago by Jīvaka Komarabhācca, a renowned healer in Buddhist tradition. It is said that he was also Buddha's friend and personal physician.
Thai Yoga Massage is a unique style of massage based on the principles of compassion. It consists of many techniques such as acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, reflexology, energy line work, stretching and assisted yoga postures.
Thai Yoga Massage is one of the services offered by our Energy Medicine Practitioner, Pamyla Love.
Thai Yoga Massage creates a powerful release of stress and tension and stimulates and balances the flow of healing energy within the body, opening the areas which are blocked bringing you deeper into balance and harmony for mind, body and spirit.
Therapists use many parts of their bodies when performing Thai Yoga Massage such as palms, thumbs, feet, elbows, forearms, and knees. The client is moved through a variety of postures that can be safely modified to be as gentle or intense to suit the client's needs. Clients can be either lying on their back (supine), stomach (prone), side-lying, inverted or seated. The work is done on a mat on the floor with the client in comfortable clothing.
