About Thai Yoga Bodywork

Thai Yoga Bodywork is a sacred healing treatment that integrates Traditional Thai Medicine, elemental theory (i.e. earth, water, fire, wind, space), and Buddhist spiritual practices. The first spiritual roots of this ancient system date to over 2,500 years ago in India, and were carried through the Buddhist teachings into SE Asia. These teachings merged with traditional therapies of the region at the time and because of this it is what we now call today "Traditional Thai Medicine."

Unique from other types of bodywork and massage, Thai Yoga Bodywork combines techniques such as acupressure (point holding), gentle twisting, assisted Hatha yoga poses, rhythmic massage, breath work and energy work. It aims to help receivers release blocked energy in the nadis (energy channels) and chakras (energy centers). Thus, stimulates the flow of healing energies in and through the body, mind and spirit. With blocked energy released and energy flowing, healing can begin from within. When the systems of the body are working well, energy distributed and flowing, the autonomic nervous system restored to a state of balance and harmony, this can be the impetus for change and good health. Furthermore, it leaves you feeling calm, relaxed, yet energized with more mobility, and an overall sense of well-being. Whether you have a yoga practice or not, this healing therapy leaves you feeling refreshed, light, clear and peaceful.

Lastly, the practice of Thai Yoga Bodywork can leave the receiver feeling as though they are moving into a deep relaxed state with the combination of movement and breathwork, all of which depends on the experience and the level of trust of the giver by the receiver, as she or he literally "dances" with the receiver guiding them in and out of movement.
