What is Thai Yoga Massage?Enjoy the best of yoga stretches and gentle massage techniques that will leave your mind, body and spirit feeling invigorated, rejuvenated and blissfully tranquil. Sometimes referred to as "yoga for lazy people", the roots of this bodywork date back 2500 years and are based on Indian Ayurvedic medicine. It is said to have been the favorite indulgence of the Buddha and still continues to be part of traditional medicine in Thailand today. In an ambient room, with calming background music, the comfortably clothed client receives this nurturing treatment on a large mat on the floor. It includes yoga stretches, joint mobilization, directed breathing, meditation techniques, massage and acupressure techniques. All these applications help to clear energy blockages, improve blood flow, enhance vitality and induce a deep relaxation response throughout the whole body. Thai Massage also includes a soothing massage of the feet, stomach, hands, face and scalp to complete this nurturing experience.Thai Yoga Massage and Yoga are ''sister-arts" that combine the best of both philosophies to provide a compassionate environment for a personalized experience that is both invigorating and blissfully relaxing. Nicknamed, "Lazy Man's Yoga", it helps to reduce stress, alleviate pain and leave you feeling rejuvenated.
