What is Thai Yoga Massage?

Thai Massage can readily be described as a combination of soft-tissue manipulation, acupressure, rhythmic compression, and stretching. The Yoga stretches will take into account both deep muscular and energetic work in addition to flexible movement. A Thai Massage, and all that is contained within, promises to positively impact the entire body by improving flexibility, releasing both superficial and deep muscular tension, and allowing for deep relaxation and calming the mind. While the massage is similar to yoga, the recipient plays only a passive role, thus this is often referred to as “lazy person’s yoga”.

How is Thai Yoga Massage Performed?

Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is usually given on a soft floor mat to incorporate movements and procedures that are not possible on a table. This also enables the efficient use of the massage-givers body weight rather than a muscular force, thus creating a highly therapeutic effect. While the recipient remains fully clothed during the entire massage, it is advisable to wear light clothing to ensure flexibility. Several props such as pillows are also used. You’ll basically experience pressure on energy lines and points, and a large variety of stretching movements, with the pressure being applied with the therapist’s hand, feet, knees, elbows, and legs to facilitate the process minus the oils.
