Anyone who has gotten a massage before knows it’s the perfect way to unwind, destress, and unclench those tight muscles. When you think of a massage, you imagine lying under a blanket, relaxing, and having a massage therapist knead your tight muscles. One way to recharge your body is with a unique massage called Thai Yoga Massage. It’s a different type of massage that combines stretching, gentle twisting, asanas and palming and is sure to help you relax and recover. This particular massage is perfect for athletes, desk-bound workers, and individuals who could benefit from stretching and movement.

What is a Thai Yoga Massage?

Typically performed on the floor lying on a mat, a specially-trained massage therapist guides you through partner yoga poses and stretches. Usually, it starts with focusing on the feet and ends with the face and head. By starting with the feet, a person’s energy can be moved upward and in turn, helps increase the circulation of blood flow and energy throughout the body and reduces stress levels. With increased blood circulation, more oxygen will flow to the brain which will help decrease headaches.

 

Like a deep tissue massage, the massage therapist uses their palms to gently knead your muscles but also, you’ll be twisted and stretched by your partner using feet, thumbs, and fists to work your body. The slow movements allow for your mind and body to slow down, get centered and experience true relaxation.yoga
