Thai Yoga Therapy is a dynamic bodywork therapy practiced over 2500 years ago as part of the traditional system of medicine in Thailand
Based on yoga and Ayurveda, the techniques and principles gradually became influenced by traditional Chinese medicine
In this unique practice, the practitioner guides the
recipient through a series of yoga postures while palming and thumbing
along the body's energy ("Sen") lines and pressures points. Together
these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that
relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune
system and balances the body energetically. Many people say Thai Yoga Therapy is like having someone do yoga to you.
Thai Yoga Therapy is done on a mat on the floor. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed. Please wear comfortable clothing that allows you to be moved in.
