Thai Yoga Massage
I have discovered thai yoga massage in India. I was pulled to this form of healing without knowing the link to Ayurveda and Yoga. Thai yoga massage can be traced back to 2,500 years, through India and the spread of Buddhism. The founder of thai yoga massage, Jivaka Kumarbhaccha, was a yogi and Ayurvedic doctor.
Thai yoga massage is yoga, Ayurveda and meditation all together. Ayurveda and thai yoga therapy share a common historical lineage that dates back to the beginnings of Vedic philosophy, 5000 years ago. Thai yoga improves circulation, relieves tension, spasms and improves the immune system. It balances the physical body energetically, calms the mind and eliminates toxins.
Thai foot reflexology is the application of pressure onto particular areas of the soles of the feet. A reflex action in another part of the body is stimulated by the manipulation of each specific area. Thai reflexology massage uses hands, fingers, thumbs, knuckles and a rounded wooden stick, with lotion or oil. This 2000 year old, highly reputed session frees up blocked energy within the body’s many sense lines (thai-based meridians) to produce a deep and unique feeling of balance, relaxation and well-being.
Lomi Lomi is an ancient form of massage practiced by the Polynesians people in Hawaii. I use it through various techniques, such as with forearms and hands. People describe this feeling as gentle waves moving over their body. Harmonizing the mind-body connection, Lomi Lomi balances the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels, connecting the spirit with the energy of the world.The body feels cleansed, balanced and more aware.
If you’re feeling stressed, sore and overtired – in other words, in need of a massage – but you’re not quite in the mood for a strenuous muscle-kneading session, an aromatherapy massage could be right up your alley.
Aromatherapy massages combine essential oils with traditional massage techniques to enhance healing, pain relief and stress reduction during a massage session.
