According to legend, Buddha’s physician Jivaka Komarpaj was the founder of the system now called Thai Yoga Massage, though it has probably changed considerably since his time.
Energy from the breath (Lom) travels through the body along lines (Sen). While this sounds like the Chinese sytem of Meridians, it is in fact much closer to Prana of Yoga. Many of the stretches used in the sessions are similar to those used in Yoga, and the method of opening the lines consists of a series of presses by the practitioner using various parts of their body depending on the intensity needed. The treatment is characterised by a rocking motion which uses the body weight to regulate the direction and pressure of each press.
Thai Yoga Massage is the most effective therapeutic massage.
As the massage is performed mostly on the floor it is recommended to wear comfortable loose clothes such as a tracksuit or loose trousers and a tee shirt.
Lower back and ham string stretch. The stretch is applied by gently leaning on the sole of his foot. By moving my left foot forward I can raise his leg further and continue the stretch.
This massage applies gentle rocking pressure to the muscles to stretch them and gradually relax them. The massage can be full body for general health and relaxation, or a programme can be devised for the client’s specific needs.
Thai Yoga Massage is suitable for sports injuries, accident or post-operative rehabilitation, and general aches and pains such as back ache, head-aches and migraine, physical or emotional trauma, bad posture. Thai Yoga Massage with its great range of techniques can release blockages in the body's energy system and bring the body back to its natural balance.
