Thai Yoga Stretching

Thai Yoga Stretching Massage is a traditional healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures.

The practice of Thai Yoga Massage is said to be thousands of years old, but it is still part of Thailand’s medical system due to its perceived healing properties at both emotional and physical levels. There are differences in certain practices associated with the massage when performed in the Western and Thai contexts. Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions.

The recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched, and rocked. The concept of metta meditation (loving-kindness), based on Buddhist teachings, is an integral part of this practice. The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor.

The massage’s true ancient style requires that the massage be performed solo with just the giver and receiver. The receiver will be positioned in various yoga-like positions during the massage’s curse, which is also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures.

The massage generally follows designated lines (“sen”) in the body. The giver’s legs and feet can be used to position the body or limbs of the recipient. In other positions, hands fix the body, while the feet do the massaging. A full Thai massage session may last two hours and includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking knuckles, walking on the recipient’s back, and moving the recipient’s body into many different positions. There are a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which the giver will adjust to fit the receiver.

All types of massage, including Thai massage, can help people relax, temporarily relieve muscle or joint pain, and temporarily boost their mood. However, many practitioners’ claims go far beyond those effects well demonstrated by a clinical study.

My approach is to help the individuals start easier their yoga self-practice, which can be done almost anytime and anywhere.
