60 MINUTES: $85
For the past 15 years, the two most common physical limitations I have seen have been in shoulders and hips. Even for people with back, neck, or knee pain – if they are able to improve the functioning of their shoulders and hips, their levels of pain become much more manageble and/or resolved.
I design customized yoga therapy programs for people with pain or injury. My clients come from a variety of backgrounds and levels of fitness, but what they share in common is what initially brings them to my classes. They initially come because the stress, injury, pain, or fatigue they are suffering from is keeping them from attainig their goals and living the life they want to live at home, work, and play.
Thai Yoga Massage
Are you tired? Thai Massage is maybe for you! What is Thai Massage?
Thai massage has been practiced more than 2,500 years ago in India. It made its way to Thailand, where the Ayurvedic techniques and principles gradually became influenced by traditional Chinese medicine. For centuries, monks performed Thai massage as one component of Thai medicine.
What Does Thai Massage Feel Like?
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work.
Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment. People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing.
What Should I Expect During My Visit?
Thai massage is usually done on a padded mat on the floor. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed. You are usually asked to bring or wear comfortable clothing to the massage.
A typical Thai massage is 60 minutes to two hours long.
Many people find that Thai massage has the following benefits:
- Reduces stress
- Improves circulation
- Increases energy
- Increases flexibility
- Improves range of motion
- Centers the mind and body
