A MASSAGE RECEIVED WITH CLOTHES ON
*Your therapist can modify this to include Gua Sha or Swedish techniques that may require some disrobing.
Customarily a session is performed on a large comfortable futon received while wearing loose-fitting or stretchy clothing that allows for movement.
A full body session usually takes 90 minutes - 2 Hours to develop, during which flowing rhythmic compressions are blended with yogic stretch positions to produce a choreographed dance of healing potential for the receiver. The movements of this style go deeper than "swedish" massage with an added focus on the receivers ability to meditate while deeply working with connective tissue, joints & tender points.
ANCIENT, SACRED, SOPHISTICATED
Thai Massage is just one component to an over all healing system founded on the principles of Ayurveda. Ayurveda is an ancient medical science with roots that can be traced back to in India, Thailand, and Tibet with its wisdom eventually spreading out over the entire planet. It is the main source of health care for a large majority of the worlds inhabitants and is a true merging of many 'healing' practices into one system paralleling in sophistication the results obtained by other modern medical options. To learn about the other treatments available in Ayurveda just ask your therapist.
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.
A HYBRID MASSAGE + PASSIVE YOGA

Outcomes include the elimination of pain, a tranquilized nervous system, encouraged postural alignment and an enhance connection between the minds control of the body.
