Thai Yoga Massage

Thai Yoga Massage is a beautiful and powerful combination of massage, acupressure, gentle stretching, twisting, energy work and meditation, all rolled into one experience. When receiving Thai Yoga Massage, one is also receiving the benefits of yoga and increased flexibility. Flexibility is fundamental to muscle usage, and bone health. Stretching with proper resistance will, over time, help muscles to release and pain to diminish. Thai Yoga Massage incorporates palming and thumbing along tight and sore muscles. This work helps to stretch and massage muscles, relieving tension, improving circulation and balancing the body energetically.

This modality is performed upon a mat on the floor, fully clothed. Form fitted yoga or athletic clothing works best (in addition to compression shorts or boxer briefs suggested for male bodied individuals). The practitioner will move your body into poses and stretches while massaging you. Benefits of this modality over table massage include being able to work areas of the body which prove difficult to access when lying unclothed on the table. 

This service is for you if:

  • You want to work on your flexibility
  • You have tight muscles which need deep work
  • You love body work and want to try something new

This service is not a good fit for you if:

  • You’ve had spinal injury
  • You have Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • You’ve had joint replacement

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN DECIDING IF THIS IS FOR YOU:

1.) This is an up close and personal experience. If you have a personal bubble, I will likely be in it.

2.) There will be times in your session where I use my feet instead of hands to massage you.
