Thai Yoga Massage

Thai massage" or "Thai yoga massage" is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures.

Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.

What to expect

The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor. You will be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage that is also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures to pressure points on your body.

A full Thai massage session may last two hours and includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking knuckles, walking on the recipient's back, and moving the recipient's body into many different positions. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which can be adjusted to fit the receiver.

How to prepare

The massage will take place in your home so you can make yourself comfortable.

  • Hydrate. Have some water nearby.

  • Please create a clean warm space for the massage in advance

  • Have a couple of blankets 

  • Have one or two cushions
