Thai Yoga Massage therapy & Zenthai Shiatsu
Thai Yoga massage is an ancient art and practice that has its roots in the Indian systems of Yoga & Ayurveda. Its potency and uniqueness make it a revered massage modality but also a spiritual practice. Thai Yoga Massage works on the physical body to relieve bodily aches, pains and tension. It works with the body in a therapeutic way, applying rhythmic compression to energy lines and acupressure points in combination with deep stretching and massage touch techniques.
Thai Yoga massages are oil-free massages performed on a mat on the floor. The practitioner guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures and stretches, palming and thumbing along the body’s “sen” (energy lines) and pressure points. This relieves muscular tension, increases circulation and balances the body by unblocking and dispersing energy. It leaves one with the openness feeling of a yoga practice combined with the total surrender and relaxation of a massage.
What is Zenthai Shiatsu?
Zenthai Shiatsu is movement based therapy & healing. Focused Intention.
Zenthai is a fusion of 3 traditional and contemporary massage and bodywork techniques:
Zen shiatsu, Traditional Chinese medicine principles (acupressure points and meridian lines, acupuncture without needles includes cupping, moxabustion and lifestyle/food advice).
Traditional Thai massage; releases muscular tension and energetic blockages
Osteopathic techniques includes joint mobilisation , connective tissue patterns and fascia unwinding.
