Bodywork that's more than skin deep

Massage therapy is just one part of a healing regimen. Yoga or daily stretching and breathing exercises are key elements in preventing injury, reducing stress and maintaining overall health. They extend the benefits of massage treatments! A balanced diet, exercise, plenty of water and laughter are also important aspects in a healthy lifestyle.

Traditional Thai Yoga Massage

The healing art of Thai Yoga massage is an ancient system with roots in Yoga, Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhism. It is a powerful system of therapy that combines Yoga stretches, rhythmic massage, acupressure, energy work and meditation. Thai massage stretches and balances the entire body. It is comically referred to as the "lazy man's Yoga" since the receiver just needs to relax while the practitioner puts them into Yogic stretches. This system releases stress and tension and deepens the connection between mind, body and spirit in both the giver and receiver. It is practiced on a mat on the floor with the client clothed in loose, comfortable clothing.
