Thai Yoga massage is a traditional and ancient form of massage. It is a dynamic and flowing treatment that can be energising or relaxing. It will be adjusted to suit you and your needs, so a full consultation is taken at your first session and follow up ones at subsequent sessions. This is a great treatment if you are feeling stiff or inflexible and also great if you are flexible! TYM works on the idea that there are a multitude of invisible energy lines running through the body that carry life force, Prana. Prana is created by the air we breathe and the food we eat. The use of direct thumb pressure on the lines and stretching of these areas, is understood to release tension, inflammation and congestion in the body therefore improving well being and the flow of prana and dispelling weakness illness and disease. This is not a diagnostic treatment but works therapeutically to help release imbalance in the body, mind and spirit. There are direct similarities to yoga and their energy lines, prana nadis and Thai Yoga massage. This type of massage is experienced fully clothed (please wear or bring clothes you can easily stretch in) and on a futon.
