What is Thai bodywork ?
On a physical level, Thai yoga bodywork incorporates compression massage (pressure, as needed), meridian & pressure point therapy, and gentle assisted body stretches and movements. No yoga experience or special flexibility is necessary. Thai massage grew out of the values and principles of Ayurveda, the Indian sister science of yoga healing) Buddhism. Thai yoga therapy approaches the human being as a physical, spiritual, mental and emotional system. A Thai therapist is trained to work with the individual in a holistic manner, while also considering the health and well-being of the therapist. This form of bodywork is a wonderful and effective therapy for the whole body. It effectively targets specific symptoms, as needed, while imparting harmony, integration and well being throughout the mind and body.
