Mind, Body and Soul
It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movements of the joints. By relieving muscles tensions, this massage therapy can be both relaxing and energizing for the purpose of optimizing health.
Originated in northern Thailand, specially from the ancient Lanna Kingdom. It involves the use of special wooden tools to relax muscles in a rhythmically tapping motion. It could be use by its own or as a complement to other massage modalities. Wood is especially good at transmitting vibrations into the fascia, tendons, nerves and muscles to clear blocked energy. It relaxes stiff bodies and provides pain relief.
Thai Yoga Massage
The therapist uses hands, feet and elbows to apply pressure to important points on the energy lines, together with gentle stretchings, joints mobilizations, breathing and meditation. This releases blocked energy and takes into account the whole person. It helps activate each patient’s natural healing processes as well as restoring their physical and emotional well-being.
