THAI YOGA MASSAGE
Thai Yoga Massage is a form of bodywork that has been around for 1000's of years. Also known as Nuad Boran, Ancient Massage & Traditional Thai Massage, this bodywork has it's origins in India and draws from the yogic tradition. The person accredited with being the founding father of Thai Massage is Ayurvedic doctor, physician & friend to the Buddha - Jivaka Khumar Bhaccha. Since this bodywork historically appeared in Buddhist temples as part of the Buddhist monks health care regime, it combines Yogic and Buddhist philosophies, yoga postures, Ayurvedic principles and martial arts style moves. Thai Yoga Massage is a comprehensive full-body treatment modified to suit the receiver.
Rest & relax while we mindfully and with metta (loving kindness) fluidly move your body through a series of yoga-type postures. You will receive assisted, or passive stretches, to suit your flexibility as the energy lines of the subtle body are pressed providing you with both a physical and energy body massage. This work is traditionally done on a mat on the floor, fully clothed and with no oils. If getting to and from the floor is challenging for the receiver, Metta Movement also offers Thai Massage on a massage table (Table Thai) or modified for a seated chair position (Chair Thai Massage).
