In a Thai Yoga Massage session, the practitioner uses a wide range of techniques, including acupressure, reflexology, assisted yoga stretches, leaning pressure and energy line work. A treatment addresses the whole body. The practitioner uses her hands, feet, elbows and knees and performs yoga-like stretches on the receiver. Thai Yoga Massage is the application of metta, or loving-kindness, through touch. From the outside, TYM looks almost like a dance between practitioner and receiver. It can be described as a ‘moving meditation’, ‘compassion in action’. What is targeted in a treatment is Pranayama Kosha, the energy body in the receiver, and this is the field in which the some of the most powerful effects of the treatment will manifest.
From the moment I received my first Thai massage treatment, I have been hooked by the amazing potential of this ancient healing art and wanted to learn this technique, so I could share it with others. A year later, I met my teacher and graduated from the London Institute of Thai Yoga Massage, under the guidance of Natasha de Grunwald.
Since I finished my training, I have had the honour to work with people from all walks of life, from office workers, to circus performers, pole dancers, and yoga teachers. I believe that everyone can benefit from a session. Whether you are looking for ways to cope with stress, or for some relief from back, shoulder or neck pain, a treatment will leave you feeling relaxed and restored. For dancers/athletes, I also highly recommend to book a session the day before a show or a competition, as it calms down the nervous system and prepares the body to perform at its best.
Treatment can help with symptoms such as:
– Upper back, neck and shoulder tension
– Back pain
– Stress and related conditions
– Migraines and insomnia
– Speeds up recovery from overtraining
