Thai or Acu-Yoga integrates acupressureand yoga. Both relax muscular tension and balance the vital life forces of the body. Each Acu-Yoga posture naturally presses and stretches certain nerves, muscles, and acupressure points, awakening the
meridians and releasing the tension in the points so that energy (chi)
can circulate freely.
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work. Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment.
People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing.
Thai massage is usually done on a padded mat on the floor. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed. You are usually asked to bring or wear comfortable clothing to the massage.
