Thai Yoga Massage

A technique of assisted manipulation of the body into poses combined with deep massageThai yoga massage, also simply called Thai massage, is a 2,500-year-old Ayurvedic-based body science. In this modality, a trained Thai Yoga massage therapist stretches a person with specific, assisted yoga poses. The philosophy behind Thai yoga massage techniques focuses on energy points called “sen.” As the Thai massage therapist stretches the participant, she also presses and massages along the sen lines or points. The therapist presses knuckles, feet, hands, thumbs and fingers into specific points while holding the participant in a stretch. This combined effort relieves areas of muscular stress and tension.
 
Techniques involve stretching myofascial tissue; acupressure; compression of tissue; and manipulation of soft tissue. Thai Yoga Massage has been found to lead to the release of muscular tension, a boosted immune system, improved circulation, and the release of mental and emotional stress.
