ABOUT THAI YOGA BODYWORK:
An ancient therapeutic system that's been used to maintain and bring health into balance for centuries across cultures.
It's not quite yoga and it's not quite massage, it's really a bit of both and then some.
It's a bodywork methodology that has astounding healing and rejuvenating benefits.
Positive and energizing, relaxing and rejuvenating: The client is passive and completely supported.
Both the client and the therapist wear comfortable clothing that allow for movement and full range of motion for all the joints.
The session is typically done on a shiatsu-type mat on the floor, often with supportive elements like bolsters or small pillows.
The term "Lazy Man's Yoga" is often used and apt in that the therapist supports the client in shapes akin to yoga postures
and works along energy lines using various compression techniques.
The therapeutic techniques culminate into more ease in the body and an overall body-mind bliss lasting well beyond the session.
