"THE MOST IN DEPTH EXPLANATION, COMMUNICATION AND APPLICATION OF A MASSAGE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED"
A MASSAGE RECEIVED WITH YOUR CLOTHS ON
Customarily a session is performed on a large comfortable futon received while wearing loose-fitting or stretchy clothing that allows for movement. It lasts 90 minutes - 2 Hours, during which flowing rhythmic compressions are blended with yogic stretch positions to produce a choreographed dance of healing potential for the receiver.
A HYBRID MASSAGE + PASSIVE YOGA
Affectionately called "lazy yoga" a Vedic Style Thai Yoga Massage choreographs a variety of unique therapies, assisted yogic stretches and massage techniques into one treatment. Outcomes include the elimination of pain, a tranquilized nervous system, encouraged postural alignment and an enhance connection between the minds control of the body.
PERFECT AT ANY AGE REGARDLESS OF BODY-TYPE
This style is adaptable for all age groups and body types. Treatments are routinely modified to include sensitivities addressing acute and chronic conditions including: herniated disks, subluxations, muscle strain, joint replacements, surgeries & pregnancy. Thai Massage is not recommended for some with osteoporosis, acute heart/blood issues (aneurysm or bleeding), skin or fungal dis-ease or other contagious conditions. An intake process will help us navigate these concerns.
ANCIENT, SACRED, SOPHISTICATED
This ancient healing art has with stood the test of time. Its roots are found in India, Thailand, and Tibet and is a merging of many 'healing' practices into one system. It parallels in sophistication the results obtained by other modern medical options and is cherished around the world for its ability to produce profound tranquility physically and psychologically by replacing old, restrictions within the body and spirit.
WHAT DOES IT do?
ELIMINATES THE SOURCE OF PAIN
Rhythmic compression along predetermined paths (nadis) removes muscular adhesions, clears out old stagnate fluid and increases the circulation throughout the body. Specific pressure applied on precise points (marmani) of the body will create a release of endorphins and neurotransmitters in the brain, tranquilizing the nervous system.
INCREASE JOINT RANGE OF MOTION
Assisted postures (Asanas) work to harmonize the different segments of the body by restoring a natural range of motion. These assisted postures rebuild trust between our motivational systems and our will power. This restored awareness of potential movement encourages postural alignment, offering greater support to the spinal construction.
SMOOTHS OUT THE EMOTIONS
The life of the body and the mind are intimately woven together. Throughout your treatments we will address a number of areas on the body that can store negative or unresolved emotions. It is not uncommon to experience moments of great bliss or sadness during a treatment. Passing through these temporary states helps to aid in the release of antiquated, non-serving thoughts and creates a more balanced emotional life.
PROFOUND REST & RELAXATION
The rhythmic style of this treatment charms the mind into a profoundly relaxed state. Matching your breath during the movements will enhance this effect. We will discuss some basics of breath control to get started. It is also common for the receiver to experience moments of "weightlessness", feel shifts of energy in their own body, and some even report receiving revelations leading to greater fulfillment in their personal lives.
