History of Thai Yoga Massage

Traditional Medical Massage of Thailand, more commonly known as Thai Massage, is one of the world's oldest healing modalities. It originated in India during the Buddha's lifetime, over 2500 years ago, and was brought to this world by a saint, the "Father Doctor Shivago Komarpahj", a contemporary of the Buddha and some say his personal physician and the physician to the King of India. As Buddhism spread out from India, this healing medicine spread with it. Early in its development it found its way to Southeast Asia where, for centuries, it was performed by monks as one element of indigenous Thai medicine. The Thai people, like many others in the orient, saw illness as an imbalance in the body/mind/spirit and they would seek help at the local temple. They were treated with the four elements of traditional Thai medicine: nutritional counselling, herbs, spiritual counselling and Thai Massage.

What is Thai Yoga Massage:

Thai Yoga Massage brings penetrating massage & gentle yoga movements into a profound healing system. It will leave you feeling deeply nourished, relaxed, and filled with energy.

Why choose Thai Yoga Massage:

According to Ayurvedic science, there is an extensive network of energy lines running throughout the body. It is through the massaging and stretching of this network of energy lines that Thai Yoga Massage releases tension. By allowing energy to flow more freely, the massage works to alleviate problematic conditions such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches, digestive difficulties, menstrual problems, and stress related conditions.

Promoting this free flow of energy also works to restore balance and create a deep state of relaxation and well being for both the client and practitioner.

Thai yoga therapy has many benefits including:

  • relief of pain due to arthritis, repetitive stress,
  • overworked muscles
  • enhances your practice of yoga, pilates, and other physical modalities
  • balances the body's energy pathways
  • better resistance to injury
  • improved range of motion
  • release of lactic acid and other toxins from areas of accumulation
  • toning of internal organs

What to expect:

Thai Massage is more active than your basic massage. Traditionally, it is performed on a padded floor mat instead of on a table; the client stays fully dressed and no oil is used. The practitioner adjusts to your level of flexibility and fitness.

What does Thai massage feel like:

Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work. People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing

What to wear:

We ask that you wear comfortable cotton or cotton/hemp clothes, as nylon and lycra tend to be too slippery. A T-shirt and loose long pants are fine. Make sure you haven't eaten at least an hour beforehand.
