WHAT IS THAI YOGA MASSAGE?

Thai Yoga Massage has evolved from traditional ayurvedic and South-East Asian health care practices. Known in Thailand as Nuat Phaen Boran or Nuat Thai, it has become increasingly popular in the Western world since the 1970s. Thai Yoga Massage combines rhythmic pressure massage, rocking, repetitive movements, assisted yoga-alike stretches, reflexology, and meditation.

Whether you are big or small, stiff or flexible, the practice can be easily modified to suit your individual needs!

WHAT TO EXPECT

In contrary to most other massage types, Thai Yoga Massage is usually practiced on a large futon-style mat on the floor. This allows unrestricted movement for both the practitioner and the client. Additional bolsters or cushions may be used to support your body during the massage.

We do not use oils or lotions. You remain fully clothed, preferably you wear leggings or light track pants and a long or short sleeved t-shirt. Socks and a light jumper may be worn on cooler days.

Thai Yoga Massage is a full-body treatment, typically starting at the feet and finishing at the head. During the massage the practitioner will systematically massage your body using thumb or palm pressure, forearms, elbows, feet and knees, and move you through a sequence of different body postures.

Expect a quiet, meditative atmosphere. The rhythmic nature of the massage promotes a meditative state in both the client and the practitioner. Only occasionally the practitioner will ask you to assist with a movement or advise a specific way of breathing, otherwise the practice is done in silence. A 5-10 minute rest concludes the massage.

While a full-length massage can easily extend to 2 hours, our standard appointments take 60-75 minutes.
