Thai Massage is an ancient bodywork practice which combines acupressure, energy meridian stimulation and yoga-like stretching. This is an Ayurvedic version of Shiatsu which encourages great relaxation and rejuvenation. The recipient, fully clothed on a floor mat, continues to remain passive, while gently and fluidly, yoga-influenced stretches are applied to them. There are many positive effects including stress-reduction, increased flexibility resulting in injury prevention, muscle spasm relief and the treatment of a wide variety of orthopedic complaints. This work is also a conscious, meditational application of Metta (love and compassion) that leaves both the giver and receiver with a life-affirming feeling of peace and connection.
