Do you feel tensed and your body is aching in certain areas?
Getting acupressure thai yoga massage causes muscles to release, a racing heart rate to slow, heightened blood pressure to fall and levels of the stress hormone cortisol to drop. In that relaxed state, thai yoga massage enables your body to regroup and recharge.
Touch is a necessary part of our lives and is the key element in both our physical and mental health. In today’s fast paced life we often tend to lose touch with our mind and body.
Thai yoga massage is a way to rebalance the body and reconnect with ourselves.

Who is this massage for?
Acupressure Thai yoga massage is for everyone who likes deep tissue massage with trigger points. It is a combination of acupressure, stretching, palming, thumbing, elbowing and gentle twisting.
How does a typical session look like?
Thai yoga massage is performed on the floor while you are lying on a padded mat and no massage oils are used.
During the entire session you stay dressed in a comfortable clothing. You may bring your own, otherwise I provide traditional thai massage clothing for the session.
The massage will start with short breathing exercise allowing you to calm and reconnect with your breath, body and mind.
I will use palms, thumbs, forearms or elbows during a session for muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure.
How does it feel?
People often feel lots of sensation not only on the point of pressure, but along the entire energy line, which happens because the acupressure points are located directly on the nerves, tendons and other connective tissues.
Depending on your condition some spots might be painful, but the pain should never be uncomfortable.
The right amount of pressure is controlled with breathing, following your inhalation and exhalation.
How will you feel afterwards?
You will feel relieved, with improved mobility. In some cases you might feel tender, but the tenderness disappears within a day or two leaving the muscles soft.
The philosophy of thai yoga massage
Thai yoga massage has a deeply holistic approach. It is rooted in the Chinese theory of Five elements and Indian healing art Ayurveda. It is believed that in human body energy flows through a network of channels called “sens” in thai (hindu “nadi” or Chinese “meridians”)
Health in the Eastern philosophy is identified as a state of equilibrium between these energies where the soul and the body work in accord with each other.
Thai yoga massage aims to unblock any blockages stimulating natural energy flow in the body, thus promoting natural health and balance.
Thai Massage is based on the holistic point of view that any problem is not simply an illness of a particular part, but rather a disorder of the whole being. All the parts of the body are believed to have an organic relationship, which exists within an even greater whole—nature.
The history of thai yoga massage
Thai yoga massage has roots dating back to the days of Gautama Buddha—about 2,500 years ago. It is believed that the father of thai massage is Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, who was the physician to Buddha.
Precautions and consideration
Although acupressure thai yoga massage offers multiple benefits those who are pregnant and those suffering from back injury such as a herniated disk should take the massage with precautions.
Always communicate your condition with me before the session.
