Thai Massage (aka Thai Yoga Massage)

Now offered every day in my private studio or mobile–bookable online via the MindBody App or at this link. I practice Traditional Thai Massage in the Northern Style taught by living master and my teacher Ajahn Pichest Boonthume. Sessions are offered in studio or at-home. Thai Massage, also sometimes called Thai Yoga Massage, is a healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures. Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked. Thai massage is performed on a thin mattress on the floor, rather than on a massage table. The massage generally follows the “sen” (energy lines) with a great deal of attention paid to the feet and legs first before moving on to other areas of the body. A full Thai massage session typically lasts two hours or more, but can be shortened and includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking knuckles, walking on the recipient’s back (in certain instances), and moving the recipient’s body into many different positions.
