What is Thai Yoga Massage?
Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient form of therapeutic healing. Born in the temples of Thailand, it has been around for over 2,500 years. It combines acupressure, energy/ meridian balancing, stretching, and gentle yoga asanas (postures) in order to align the energies of the body for optimal health and wellness.
Thai Yoga Massage is based on a yoga tradition that vital energy (prana) flows through a series of channels in the human energy body. It is believed that stress and disease are caused by blockages in that energy flow and the aim of this bodywork is to release those blockages, restore equilibrium and harmony, and promote a return to good health.
