What is Thai Yoga Massage?

Thai Yoga Massage also known as “lazy man’s yoga”, is a treatment for everyone regardless of age, fitness and flexibility. It blends element of acupressure yoga, reflexology, physiotherapy, meditation and relaxation. It is based on the ancient belief that life force energy (prana or chi) circulates around the body through 10 main energy lines. Blockages along these pathways can result in pain or disease on both a physical and emotional level.

The therapist uses hands, feet and elbows to apply pressure along these lines whilst also using gentle stretching, massage and basic yoga postures. This releases blocked energy and frees the bodies own natural healing abilities thus restoring balance and health to the body.
