Thai Yoga Massage
People often report that they feel equally energised, relaxed, and calm after receiving a Thai Yoga massage.
People often notice a sense of being more in-touch with their body, and relief of muscular aches, pains and general tension.
It is advisable to stay well-hydrated with plenty of water or herbal tea for at least 24 hours after treatment.

What is Thai Yoga massage?
Thai Yoga massage is a dynamic deep tissue massage developed through the fusion of Yoga and massage. The roots of this healing therapy are thought to have evolved from the Indian medicine system of Ayurveda and Thai Buddhist principles of compassion. Practised with Metta (loving kindness), this meditative practice is much like a flowing dance between recipient and practitioner, and sometimes described as ‘assisted yoga’.
How can Thai Yoga massage help?
Thai Yoga massage aims to shift energy blockages in the body; this is achieved by working on energy lines ('Sen') with compression techniques, and through gently stretching and rocking the body, synchronising movements with the recipients breath. The stretches involved and the opening and clearing of Sen is said to impart the benefits of Yoga to the recipient. The treatment can help to improve circulation, realign the body, adjust posture, and relieve tensions both physical and emotional. Thai Yoga massage is suitable for most people, including those who are pregnant, and the elderly.
What to expect?
At the first appointment there will be a consultation conversation which may take 10 - 15 minutes. Treatment is carried out on a comfortable futon mat on the floor, usually fully dressed wearing loose-fitting or stretchy clothing. The massage involves a combination of rhythmic palming and thumbing along Sen energy lines, acupressure, assisted yoga stretches, gentle rocking, and breath-work. People often report feeling both relaxed and energised after a treatment, and that they feel more in touch with / aware of their body.
