TRADITIONAL THAI YOGA BODYWORK

FullSizeRender_1.jpg

Thai Yoga Bodywork combines the best of yoga and massage into one experience.  It is traditionally performed on a mat, but can also be performed on a table, in comfortable clothing and is customized to the needs and wants of each person.  It can provide amazing results to reduce stress, ease discomfort and create total relaxation.

In this unique healing system, also called Nuad Boran, the practitioner guides the client through a series of yoga postures, while massaging (palming and thumbing) along the body’s energy (‘Sen’) lines and pressure points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically.  Give it a try and be amazed by the power of this compassionate touch!

Benefits

  • Reduces stress and its effects on the body.  
  • The body is stretched and opened, giving it a greater range of motion and increased flexibility.  
  • Intense workouts? Long flights? Relieves tired muscles, rejuvenates and restores, and leaving you with a deep feeling of well-being.  
  • While the physical, dynamic movements work deeply on the physical body, the energetic theoretical foundation of Thai Massage works on balancing the pranic energy that all humans possess.  
  • The spirit of Metta (loving kindness), given by the practitioner while performing the massage works on the emotional and spiritual balance of the recipient.  

 

THAI AROMA OIL GLIDING HANDS

Thai Aroma Oil Hand Gliding bodywork is a combination of aromatherapy using hot soothing oil and gliding techniques to deliver one of the most relaxing experiences in bodywork.  It can relax muscle tension, relieve stress and reduce strains all over the body by stimulating sensory nerve endings in the skin.  These nerve endings then transmit messages through the nervous system and cause the brain to release endorphins.  By stimulating the body's parasympathetic nervous system, blood pressure decreases and heart rate slows down while increasing blood circulation.  Activating the body's lymphatic system helps to remove waste products from the bloodstream. This luxurious treatment is performed at a slow pace and uses a relaxing pressure with emphasis on working out adhesions/knots in the muscle tissue.  

BENEFITS

  • Decreases stress and depression.  
  • Improves circulation and detoxification.
  • Effective for neuromuscular problems.  
  • Aromatherapy is proven to help relax and control anxiety, stimulating your senses and mental revitalization.
  • Heated oil opens the muscles and relaxes the joints, which helps it to penetrate the tissues more easily and leaves you feeling less sore from deep work.
  • Athletes benefit greatly from relaxing massage immediately after physical activity to knead out lactic acid and help prevent further micro-tears of the muscle fibers that contribute to muscle tension.
  • It's excellent as a preparation for deeper bodywork to prepare the muscles and fascia for more intense pressure.

AYURVEDA THAI YOGA WELLNESS

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is the sister science to yoga and is the world's oldest healing system.  It provides essential information about our individual nature and why we are the way we each uniquely are.  By using the principles of ayurveda to increase awareness of ourselves we can become more empowered to live a life which is healthy, balanced and happy.

How is it different from Traditional Thai Yoga Bodywork?

Bodywork in Ayurvedic Thai Yoga Wellness differs from Traditional Thai Bodywork in that the pacing, pressure and postures are precisely customized to you according to your dosha - your ayurvedic profile, (which we will determine in your first session via survey).  The foundation of ayurveda is the belief that we are all made up of a combination of 5 basic elements: space, air, fire, water and earth.  According to ayurveda, these elements combine to work together as forces in our body, but in very different quantities, which makes each of us unique - just like our fingerprints.  Our rhythm, our likes and dislikes, our tendencies and countless other characteristics are all influenced by these forces.  The Ayurvedic Holistic Wellness Program can offer you guidelines on everything from what kind of massage to receive, which yoga postures are best for you, which foods to eat and avoid, and lifestyle practices that help to regulate an optimal balance of these forces in your body.  The general maintenance of these becomes your path to living a healthy and harmonious lifestyle well beyond the massage itself!!

Keep in mind...

Before ANY session Above:

  • Avoid eating anything heavy at least one hour directly before the massage.

  • For your first session, arrive 10 minutes early to complete a brief Health Questionnaire and discuss your physical history and any questions or comments.  On subsequent sessions, arrive 5 minutes early to relax and unwind prior to beginning the work.
  • If you arrive late for your booked time, it may not be possible to receive the entire time that you have booked without extending into the time that another customer may have reserved. However, you are still responsible to make payment in full for the time that you have reserved.
  • Remember it is your session. Pressure can be at light or deep, whatever you prefer.  If you feel any discomfort at all at any point, or want to avoid work on specific areas of the body, be sure to let me know. Your feedback may make the difference between a good session and a great one!

History OF THAI MASSAGE

2,500 years ago a dynamic bodywork therapy based upon yoga and Ayurveda practices, appeared in the temples of Thailand. This therapeutic art was directly rooted in the Indian healing traditions of Ayurvedic medicine. The father founder of Thai Yoga Massage, Jivaka Kumarbhaccha was a renowned doctor and yogi, whom treated the Buddha, among others. After the Buddha’s death, the earliest Buddhist monks travelled to Southeast Asia and were accompanied by Ayurvedic doctors. These doctors practiced a healing art, that would later evolve into traditional Thai Massage.
