What is Thai Yoga Bodywork?

Based on the northern style of traditional Thai Massage (Nuad Boran), Thai Yoga Bodywork is a sacred healing treatment that integrates Yoga, Ayurveda (the Indian healing method that means science of life), and Buddhism. The first roots of this ancient system date back to over 2,500 years ago at the time of Buddha. Unique from other types of bodywork and massage, Thai Yoga Bodywork is also a form of Yoga Therapy that combines rhythmic massage, assisted Yoga poses, acupressure along energy meridians know as the Sen, healing energy work, and meditation.

Health in eastern philosophies is regarded as a state of balance between these energies, where all the systems of the body, including mind and spirit, function in harmony with each other. Disease is seen as imbalance or disharmony in this flow of energies. Thai Yoga Bodywork aims at stimulating the flow of healing energies within the body, opening the areas which are blocked and bringing the body, mind and spirit back into balance and harmony.

Benefits of Thai Yoga Bodywork:

  • Releases stress and tension
  • Increases flexibility, suppleness & vital energy

  • Relieves pain and soreness
  • Brings the systems of the body into balance
  • Increases blood and lymph flow

What is a typical session like?

A typical Thai Yoga Bodywork session lasts between one to two full hours. Receivers lay on a large futon designed specifically for Thai Yoga Massage. Wear loose, comfortable clothing. Layers are recommended because your body temperature may drop as you receive bodywork. Bare feet is recommended. Then just lay back and relax!
