What is today called "Thai massage" or "Thai yoga massage" is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures. Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. Muscles are compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.
Thai massage can relieve muscular tension, improve circulation, increase flexibility and balance the body energetically.
I am able to incorporate some Thai Yoga Massage poses into a traditional massage on the table which requires draping.
To allow ease of movement and flexibility, Traditional Thai Yoga massage is performed on a mat on the floor and both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing so that no draping is needed.
