Thai massage sometimes called Thai yoga massage is a holistic approach to massage therapy. Not only does it heal body and mind but also brings spiritual development. Ill feeling of any kind occurs from loss of balance, be it of any dimension. Thai massage promotes and restores balance of your system, body and mind as well as social and spiritual.
Thai practitioners apply Thai massage by way of pressing on pressure points along lines correlating to energy pathways which are the same as in ancient Indian Ayurvedic channels. Thumbs, fingers, palms elbows and feet are used directly on the muscles to release tension and blockages and restore balance. Patients are treated on a mat in various seated and reclining positions. They may choose to wear comfortable, loose fitting, yoga type clothing or they will be provided with a t shirt and traditional Thai massage pants.
Thai massage is one method of healing and recharging the body by stimulating the life force within and opening up the energy channels to enable energy to flow freely. This process energizes cells in different parts of the body.

Yoga is practiced with the purpose of uniting the mind, body, and spirit. The word yoga comes from Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language. In contemporary practice, yoga is interpreted as meaning union.
To achieve this union it is necessary to prepare the body for meditation by stretching and building strength. This is the physical practice of yoga, also known as asana.
Yoga is about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through the performance of poses or postures, each of which has specific physical benefits.
Our yoga teachers will often refer to “your practice,” which means your individual experience with yoga as it develops over time. The amazing thing about yoga is that your practice is always evolving and changing, so it never gets boring. Although the poses themselves do not change, your relationship to them will.
Anyone can start a yoga practice, even if you don’t feel like you are very flexible or very strong. Your strength, flexibility and mental focus will improve the longer you practice.
