What is Thai Yoga Massage?
Thai yoga massage is an ancient healing modality that combines yoga, Buddhism and Ayurvedic philosophies.
Gentle rocking, partnered with deep stretching, rhythmic compression and soft tissue manipulation, works with acupressure techniques to help balance a person’s physical and energetic systems.
Thai massage can be described as though yoga were being done to a person rather than by that person – or “lazy man’s yoga,” as Leah refers to it.
The benefits of this healing modality can include increased flexibility and the release of deeply embedded muscle tension, as well as superficial tension.
It also has the potential to release blockages within the Sen lines, also known as meridians, which can increase the body’s natural energy flow, and promote a meditative mindset.
