Thai Yoga Bodywork, also referred to as Thai Yoga Massage, is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage.
The practitioner uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move the receiver into a series of yoga-like stretches. During the session muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used along the body’s energy lines to facilitate deep relaxation and release of tension.
People describe Thai Yoga Bodywork as both relaxing and energizing, very much like assisted yoga plus massage.
Thai Yoga Bodywork dates back to 2500 years ago to the founder, Jivaka Kumarbhaccha, physician to Buddha and source of Ayurvedic practices in Thailand.
