Thai Yoga Massage

Many of the techniques in thai massage seem to be common sense  and in Thailand,  rural workers have for generations exchanged massage with family members.  In tandem, there exists a  more scientific form of thai massage which is  based on yoga theory  introduced to Thailand 2,000 years ago. Using stretching and acupressure techniques, its aim is to aid the flow of energy around the body to restore balance, in much the same way as yoga.

In more recent years, the theory of thai massage has been borne out by research into the fascial ‘net’ which allows body-wide connections between muscles.* These principles are used in osteopathy and myofascial release. By a process of unravelling, the therapist can release tension and encourage healthy patterns of movement.

The treatment is suitable for all body types, irrespective of flexibility.   It is also particularly effective for pregnant women.

It is conducted on a mat with the client fully clothed. Loose-fitting, comfortable clothes are best.   Seated massage is also possible
