Thai Yoga Therapy
The techniques, practices, philosophy and approach of Thai Yoga Therapy is based on the beautiful and powerful combination of massage, acupressure, stretching, twisting, energy work and meditation all rolled into one. Thai yoga therapy aims at stimulating the flow of energies within the body by working the sen lines to open the places which are blocked, relieve the places where there is too much and bring the whole into balance.
Within the Yoga tradition there are 14 main energy lines, while in Thai Therapy there are 10 main lines. Along these energy lines are certain vital points (acu- pressure points/marmas). These vital points are major junctions of muscle, vessels, ligaments, bones and joints. These points are the seats of vital life force (prana) within the physical body.
What does Thai Yoga Therapy feel like?
Thai Yoga Therapy is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Also known as Thai yoga massage, 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. Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during a session.
