Thai Yoga Massage is a system of bodywork and manipulation developed in Thailand and influenced by the traditional medicine systems of India, China, and Southeast Asia. Thai Yoga Massage is believed to have been developed by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, physician to Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago in India. The healing art made its way to Thailand via Indian Buddhists and it was then that the Ayurvedic techniques and principles gradually became influenced by the healing practices of the local shamans and folk healers, as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The main focus of Thai Yoga Massage is working on the Sen Lines, also referred to as Nadis or Meridians, which are pathways of flowing energy that sustain our health. The Therapist utilizes her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move the client into a series of yoga-like stretches while also applying muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure during treatment. Imbalances in the Sen Lines are excessive amounts or depletion of energy that can be affected by lifestyle, age, or physical condition. Many people say Thai Yoga Massage is like doing yoga without any work and describe the session as both relaxing and energizing.
Thai Yoga Massage is usually done on a padded mat on the floor with the receiver fully and comfortably dressed. A typical session is 60 minutes to two hours long. It is recommend that the client does not eat a heavy meal before the massage to avoid any digestive discomfort. Please arrive on time and plan a few moments before the session for a consultation to review your health history with the therapist. If you feel discomfort at any time, communicate with your therapist!
