Thai Yoga Massage Therapy

Traditional Thai Massage, also called Thai Yoga Therapy, is a therapeutic technique that dates back thousands of years.

Traditional Thai massage is a deep, full-body treatment, which includes both stretching of the joints and muscles, and applied pressure to the sen lines. Thai people used massage not only to treat illnesses, but also to maintain health and well-being.
There are hundreds of positions and techniques in the complete repertoire of Thai massage, including:
  • pressure along the sen or energy lines of the body
  • gentle soothing movement
  • yogic stretching
  • rhythmic rocking
  • range of motion work
  • joint compression and decompression
A Thai massage treatment is a positive, energizing, uplifting experience for the client as well as the practitioner. A session is a flowing dialog between client and practitioner, akin to a dance or martial arts form. The client is passive and completely supported in all positions by the therapist. Some people call Traditional Thai Massage "Lazy man's yoga", because the therapist is skilled at supporting the client in stretches that are yoga poses. In many cases, the client can experience the benefit of poses that would be difficult to achieve unassisted, because it can take years to develop the requisite strength, balance and flexibility to achieve the poses in a solo yoga practice. Also, the therapist works energy lines while the client is in the pose, which has a synergistic effect in opening and energizing the body. Clients that have an active yoga practice often find that regular Thai yoga therapy sessions enhance their practice, allow them to stretch and open more quickly and avoid injury.
