Traditional Thai Massage is an ancient healing technique that has been in popular use in Asia since the time of the Buddha (~500 BCE). The practice itself manifests as a flowing dance that synthesizes the cumulative knowledge and techniques of many disciplines. An ancient healing art, it combines the best of acupressure from Thailand and haṭha yoga from India, gentle rocking movements, deep rhythmic compressions, a variety of stretching movements and restorative yoga positions open the body’s complex network of tissue and energy lines. Thai Massage relieves muscular tension and pain, improves circulation, boosts the immune system, and balances the body energetically, facilitating mind-body integration. A session of Thai Yoga Massage results in restoring a healthy, balanced energetic flow to the recipient. It is a complete therapeutic treatment on its own, and may also be incorporated into other modalities of massage or into yoga classes. Appropriate for beginners ~ come alone or bring a friend.
