THAI YOGA MASSAGE


Thai massage is an ancient healing modality originally intended to prepare monks for many hours of mediation practices.  Also known as Thai Yoga Massage, this modality has three basic principles that give it its unique flavor.  The first element is palm (or even foot, knee or elbow) pressure through the receiver’s tissues.  This is very releasing, relieving and detoxifying, and gives the receiver a great sense of his or her three dimensionality.  Second is stretching, or yogic stretching.  The giver offers the receiver profound stretches, opening the body passively into forward bends, back bends, twists, and even inversions.  Great for increasing flexibility and improving your yoga practice!  The third element is offering the receiver openings along Energy Lines.  This helps the receiver stay free of blockages in the body, promoting health, balance and well-being. The massage is practiced clothed, on a soft, padded floor mat.  What clients love most about this treatment is the offering to increase flexibility, relax stressed muscles and mind, and always promotes good digestion, leading to great overall health.  As a practitioner, I keep the Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha present as I work: to work from my Buddha nature, at my highest potential, to follow my dharma, or path in doing this work, and to feel the presence of Sangha, community, interconnectedness with my client and all sentient beings.
