Also known as Thai Yoga Massage, it has its roots in ancient Indian Ayurvedic systems. The method having travelled from India to Thailand about 2000 years ago, now is being used for its countless benefits in the western society.
By freeing the flow of vital energy in the body, Thai Massage can improve posture, breathing, flexibility, digestion and circulation. Muscles are stretched, inner organs toned, and emotional and nervous tension is reduced. Often a deep sense of peace can be experienced during and after a treatment.
Although the main emphasis in the practice of Yoga Massage is usually on health prevention (as all disease manifests first on the energy level, and can be treated there before it becomes physical), it can also be of great therapeutic benefit for a range of specific problems and conditions, such as headaches, back pain, digestive disorders, shoulder and neck tension, joint pain, menstruation problems, insomnia and other stress related conditions.
