The Assisted Passive Yoga ...
Thai massage is a type of massage that combines acupressure, yoga poses (with assistance) and ayurveda. Also known as Thai Yoga Massage. The massage respects the body's limits, while encouraging the clients to reach their edge of flexibility (never beyond). Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions and the client remains fully clothed during a session. The true ancient style of this massage is performed between the therapists and the client only. The massage generally follows designated lines in the body and includes deep static and rhythmic pressures while stretching the entire body. This may include finger and toe pulling, ear pulling, cracking knuckles, walking on clients back and moving the clients body into many different positions. Thai massage is performed on a soft floor. In some cases pillows and bolsters may be used for better client support.
This interactive form of bodywork can utilize tai chi, rocking and rhythmic motion, massage, and assisted stretching.
Therapists may use their hands, feet, knees, elbows, and legs.
Thai massage was developed more than 2,000 years ago in Thailand. It is considered one of the main ancient healing arts of traditional Thai medicine. Thai massage was passed from teacher to teacher within the Buddhist temples and practiced amongst families as a healing folk art. Most of the recorded history of Thai massage was lost in 1767 during the Burmese attack in Ayutthia. There were a few records that survived and were inscribed in the Sala Moh Nuat, a massage pavilion in Bangkok. Following WWII, Thailand became a popular place for tourist, making Thai massages a world known technique. It reached the United States in the late 1980's
Thai is an ancient natural therapy that has plenty of benefits. It promotes circulation, increases muscular flexibility, relieves pain and muscle tension, and improves range of motion. Thai massage also heightens energy levels, improves body-mind connection, rejuvenates the body and mind and improves circulation and lymph flow. Thai massage is deeply relaxing and quiets the mind.

Benefits of Thai Modalities
LET'S TALK ABOUT STRESS RELIEF
Who doesn't want to reduce the stress in their life? Stress relief is key to finding the balance of a healthy lifestyle. Even a single massage session has been shown to significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels - all of which help reduce daily stress.
LET'S FORCE THE ISSUE...OF RELAXATION
How often and how long are you actually able to disconnect from life? Massage has been shown to help the body enter a relaxing rest-and-recovery mode - an effect that lingers long after the massage is over.
SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE...OF YOUR POSTURE
Unlike other bad habits, poor posture can help be corrected by relaxation. Massage helps reinforce healthy and natural movements, which can get your posture back on track.
BREATHE IN. BREATHE DEEPLY.
One of the telltale signs of anxiety and stress is constricted breathing. Massage can play an important role in relieving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax.
