Thai Yoga Massage

My Thai Yoga Massage is a whole different massage experience…  I work within the framework of Ayurveda to bring a deep understanding of body and mind.

Gentle yet powerful yoga type stretches, therapeutic pressure and acupressure are applied carefully along the limbs and body in a rhythmic and fluid meditative flow.  You will be gently rocked and moved,  allowing the fascia to unwind…  This quickly creates a feeling of profound space and relaxation as you feel fully supported and able to let go of tension. 

Massage and Bodywork can help:

• Relieve stress that life places on your body
• Release tissues and mobilise joints strained from work, life, sport or gardening
• Prepare for and recover from sports and sporting events
• Explore the effects on your body of your personal history, which can be held as tension
• Let go of patterns of movement that no longer serve you
• Address emotional needs, feel nurtured, seen and heard
• Help you discover that feeling of spaciousness in your body and a relaxed mind

Massage can enable your body to find it’s own path to healing and restore its own unique balance.

Blood , Qi and the nervous system form the foundations of our bodies internal pathways. Your doctor may refer to blood flow or nerve pathways,  whilst your complementary health practitioner may refer to it as the energetic flow (Qi or Prana) that ensures good health and vitality.

When this flow is obstructed through emotional or physical trauma, repetitive strain, postural imbalances or infection, the natural healing mechanisms of our body are challenged and the energetic flow often stagnates. The result is pain, low energy and a general loss of the feeling of well-being.  The body is in need of support.

Using breath, movement and touch

We are working with the muscles, fascia and energetic (nervous) systems of the body,  listening deeply and working mindfully, allowing the tissues to unwind, restrictions to release and energy to flow.  This quality of the work means it it also and ideal therapy for stress and anxiety as we are speaking directly to the imbalanced nervous system and providing a nurturing and calming treatment.  Have you noticed how when you are stressed you often have aches and pains – especially in the legs, low back or shoulders and neck?

Fascia is the connective tissue that exists throughout the body from head to foot, covering our organs and every muscle fibre without interruption.  Poor posture, physical trauma, stress and inflammation can cause the fascia to tighten or “bind down” and restrict movement.  Restrictions can cause pain and a reduced range of motion.  By using gentle pressure and stretches,  Muscle Energy Techniques and Myofascial Release we can melt the fascia, allowing for restrictions to release, easing tensions.  

 When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything.  Thich Nhat Hanh

We have such an adaptable way of working in Thai Yoga Massage.  Being able to move around on the futon into different positions,  applying great stretches and gentle pressure just where it’s needed,  make this such a versatile therapy for a wide range of complaints.  

Great Thai Yoga Massage! Really good stretch out of tired and tensed muscles. Felt stronger and taller after an hours treatment. Lyn is a fantastic therapist and I will go back!    Adrienne

Thai Yoga Massage is great for sports people

Runners, dancers and  yogis especially like this therapy.  It is a great therapy for pre-event, preparing the body by giving the muscles a wonderful stretch out, ready for action.  At the same time balancing the energetic body and nervous system leaving you refreshed and ready!  Post event it helps the body to wind down and encourages the release of lactic acid as well as being super relaxing for you.  

Learning is movement from moment to moment.  J Krishnamurti

We work from a comfy heated Futon on the floor,  and you wear loose comfortable clothing like a T shirt and joggers.  It is very beneficial for you to have a session every 3 or 4 weeks.  This will help you to keep your energy levels up, and prevent other problems occurring. 

I will be able to recommend Yoga exercises, and you may want to consider a 1:1 Yoga session to designed just for you-  a takeaway practice for your home use.

I have to say this was my best massage ever, it was the most nurturing and special experience and it shan’t be my last, I shall be back for another. Do not hesitate to book a massage you shall not be disappointed. It was heavenly. Thank you Lyn.    Sarah
