HOLISTIC YOGA MASSAGE

WHAT IS YOGA MASSAGE?

Yoga Massage is a dynamic form of massage that has evolved from traditional Thai Massage.

Our method combines rhythmic pressure techniques, rocking, assisted yoga moves, elements from osteopathy and cranio-sacral therapy, and meditation in one full-body treatment.

It is ideal for all who hold a lot of tension in their body, struggle to relax, or feel exhausted from work or intense exercise routines.

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, Yoga Massage is 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.

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 positions.

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 approx. 75 minutes (60 minutes massage plus rest & time to "wake up").
