THAI YOGA BODY MASSAGE
The origin of Thai Massage traces back to a time approximately 2500 years ago, when Yogic and Ayurvedic medicine were practiced by monks. The founder of the practice was Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, a doctor believed to be the friend and healer to the Buddha.
Thai Massage is a comprehensive and dynamic bodywork treatment that works on a physical, energetic and emotional level. Directing attention to the body's energetic pathways through movement and mindful massage, blockages are free to release, restoring the flow of energy, and thus liberating your innate ability to heal.
Thai Massage allows you to connect on a level that goes beyond the skin. In this flowing movement practice, awareness is passed between giver and receiver, resulting in a therapeutic experience of full body relaxation. Thai bodywork incorporates movement and stretch which has the capacity to deliver greater pranic flow through the muscles and joints of the body, inspiring deeper, long lasting effects. It differs from other forms of massage in that it is done on the floor, fully clothed. No oils are used in this practice.
The health and wellness benefits of Thai Massage are many. By restoring the flow of energy through the body, it can increase flexibility, range of motion, athletic performance, mental clarity and energy levels. Most clients immediately feel more physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually balanced. The nervous system, blood flow and relaxation response are all stimulated while simultaneously relaxing the mind and body.
Often referred to as "passive yoga", Thai Massage is a natural bodywork therapy with profound healing qualities that has the same benefits as yoga, Tai Chi and martial arts.
The benefits include:
* Relaxes muscles
* Improves the range of motion
* Enhances physical performance
* Gives mental clarity
* Stimulates the nervous system
* Betters the circulation
* Liberates the energy flow
