*** Thai Yoga Bodywork ***
Massage and Manual Stretching
At Hummingbird Yoga Studio
( And Soon to be offered at Bee Well Boutique and Spa )
With Laura Germanio OTR, RYT
What is Thai Yoga Bodywork?
Thai Yoga bodywork combines passive yoga stretches with massage techniques to relax the body and quiet the mind. Each technique works to open the energy channels of the body to create balance and leave the receiver feeling calm yet invigorated. A Thai Bodywork session incorporates elements of acupressure, massage, meditation, assisted stretching, joint mobilizations, energy work and yoga postures with a basis in the science of Ayurveda.
What Does a Session Look Like?
Thai Yoga Bodywork is done on a large mat or cushion on the floor. Both the therapist and the participant are dressed in “Yoga” type attire. The room is prepared with soothing music and low lighting. The therapist moves, manipulates and massages the participant into passive yoga postures to enhance the feeling of opening and relaxation. The movement though out the session is slow and meditative, as the therapist uses their hands, forearms, elbows and knees to guide movements and apply pressure. The traditional treatment session is 90 minutes long to enable the therapist to perform a full body treatment.
What are the Benefits of Thai Yoga Bodywork?
The Thai Yoga Bodywork techniques combine stretching with manual massage to bring about a release of held tension. The nervous system is calmed, the internal organs are massaged and circulation enhanced. The body becomes balanced, relaxed and open to enhance overall health. Upon completion of the session there is a feeling of deep peace and wellbeing. A specialized Thai Bodywork treatment can be specialized to address the individual client’s injuries, health concerns or imbalances.
What is the Theory behind Thai Yoga Bodywork?
Traditional Thai massage puts a strong emphasis on the relationship between the therapist and participant. The Therapist is in a deeply focused and meditative state to improve communication and receptivity to the subject’s needs. The therapist moves slowly and mindfully to convey the feeling of Metta or loving-kindness. In this system the body is seen as a dynamic entity of interconnected energy, emotion, spirit and physical components. If any of the energy lines (Sen Lines & meridians) in the body are blocked or unbalanced it can lead to difficulty in these components. The personalized treatment received during a Thai Bodywork sessions opens these energy channels to create balance and harmony throughout all systems of the body. There is also a strong connection to the science of Ayurveda. Each component used by the therapist works to bring balance to the three doshas (vata, pitta, kapha). The emphasis is on creating balance in the body to prevent dis-ease.
