Thai Yoga Massage

Thai yoga massage, is a 2,500 year old Ayurvedic based body science developed and popularized by Buddha’s doctor, Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha.

 

An important element of Eastern medicine is the concept of life force or energy. In Yogic terms, it is referred to as Prana, in Chinese it is called Chi, and in Thai, it is called Loom. All are referring to the basic principle of life force energy, which flows along specific channels. Along these channels, called “Sen lines,” also known as “Prana Nadis” in Yoga, are specific energy points, that when blocked, stagnates the flow of energy in one area of the body.

These blockages, caused by stress, tension, poor posture, and injury can create dis-ease. Typically, there will be pain or tension in some areas of the body (often causing toxic build up) before certain symptoms of an ailment will occur. It is to our advantage to work on physical imbalances before they develop into more serious diseases and before the toxic build-up has caused damage to our internal organs.

How does Thai Yoga work?

Traditional Thai Yoga massage provides benefit by stimulating pressure points to open the body’s energy pathways, allowing healing energy to flow freely and allowing the body to heal itself. Thai yoga massage works in a similar way to practicing yoga poses. As participants hold a pose, blood slows to targeted areas. When the yogi releases the pose, fresh circulation rushes back into the area. 

Traditional Thai method uses mainly point pressure and muscle stretching. Thai Yoga massage is a deep, full-body treatment, starting at the feet and progressing up to the head applying pressure on the “Sen lines”. It is the combination of yoga stretching, calmness of meditation, with acupressure, and reflexology that makes it such an amazing healing art.
