Thai Yoga Massage

All you have to do is breathe

An ancient healing art, a bodywork therapy that originated in India 2500 years ago and developed through Asia to Thailand where it is still widely practiced today.

This unique healing art, also known as Passive Yoga, moves the recipient through a series of yoga poses and stretches accompanied by breathing instructions given by the therapist.

This practice follows Yogic and Ayurvedic principles that focus on releasing toxins and tension while clearing blocks in the energy system of the body, or Prana Nadis. The therapist rhythmically palms and thumbs gently applying firm pressure along the 10 main energy lines to free the flow of Prana (breath or life force).

The goal of Passive Yoga is to increase the energy flow within the body which supports the body’s natural healing process, therefore promoting good health. The recipient leaves feeling lighter, clearer and more flexible. Body awareness increases thus aiding in understanding the body’s needs in order to regain balance.  It is in a balanced state that we are able to fight off illness best.

Benefits include: Releasing of tension and stress both in body and mind, improving blood and lymph flow, increase energy flow, balance and flexibility all of which boosts the immune system bringing an overall sense of well-being.

Please note that Thai Yoga Massage is performed on a comfy floor mat. Please dress in stretchy comfortable clothing, including socks, and tie back long hair.
