THAI YOGA MASSAGE
Thai Yoga Massage combines movement, stretching and massage to gently open up the body and allow for a deep release of tension and stress. A very balancing, relaxing and rejuvenating form of massage.
Thai Yoga Massage is a dynamic bodywork therapy where the practitioner guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures whilst using touch and pressure along meridian lines and pressures points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and restores body/mind balance.
Thai Yoga Massage is performed on a mat on the floor; both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing allowing ease of movement and flexibility. No oils or creams are used.
Live Well’s practitioner Takako Mizogami uses a form of Thai Yoga massage known as Lotus Palm. The lotus is a symbol of loving-kindness and compassion and as such ‘Lotus Palm’ means “the compassionate touch” which emphasizes using the least amount of effort to achieve maximum results. Treatment focuses on the skilful use of proper alignment and flowing transitions from one posture to the next infused with an intention of loving-kindness.
Please note, Thai Yoga massage is not suitable if you have osteoporosis or cancer.
