What is Thai Yoga massage?
Thai yoga massage is a traditional massage which both relaxes and energizes. It focuses on helping the body to maintain the balance in energy flow throughout the body, which is believed to be the key to good health. Stretching, energy work and acupressure are used to open energy channels, allowing the body to rebalance and thus heal itself.
Using techniques learned at Wat Po Temple, Bangkok, the leading school of massage in Thailand, the massage applies pressure to points along the energy lines (Sen lines). Gentle rocking techniques, compression and elongation of the muscles with yoga-like stretches relaxes tight muscles and opens stiff joints, allowing energy to flow with less obstruction.
Thai yoga generally promotes a state of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, establishing a healthier flow of energy, releasing tension and stimulating the body’s own healing response.
