Thai Yoga Massage
Traditional Thai Yoga Massage has its roots in the Indian system of Yoga and Ayurveda.
The legendary founder of this art, known as Dr. Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, is believed to have been an Ayurvedic doctor from northern India that reached what is now Thailand at the same time as Buddhism – as early as the 3rd or 2nd century B.C.
Due to the Indian roots, Thai massage has a strong connection with Yoga and Ayurveda. Similarly to Yoga, employs the usage of energy line system - the Ten Sen - identifying acupressure points and asana chikitsa, or the use of assisted yoga postures to increase the vital flow of prana/chi, or life force. The massage is given in a meditative way, concentrating in the work of healing and intuition on the flow of energy.
Known for its balancing and restorative qualities, this unique and powerful therapy blends elements of acupressure, Yoga, Reflexology, Physiotherapy, meditation, energy healing, chiropractic and Ayurveda.
Trauma (physical or mental), bad habits, diet, posture, injuries, etc, can create blockages that cause dis-ease. The Thai Yoga massage therapist uses energy line system - the Ten Sen - to conduct practical treatment for the whole body and its internal organs, reinstating its natural equilibrium of dis-ease free.
