Thai Yoga massage is also known as Nuad Boraen, Traditional Thai Massage or Thai Massage and is a form of therapeutic massage. “Put simply: you lie there while your masseuse performs yoga on you,” explains massage therapist Daniel.
Thai Yoga Massage aims to clear an energy line system through which the body’s natural life force flows. Blockages in this Ten Sen are traditionally thought to cause aches, pains and disease.
While it can treat ailments such as headaches, knee pain, back, shoulder and neck pain, premenstrual tension, it is especially effective for numbness or loss of feeling in conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, or after a stroke, and can help with pain relief during labour.
“In our everyday lives we’re tense and breath shallowly and rapidly. Deep breathing and stretching allow you to focus more deeply into the stretch to relax,” says yoga instructor Annie Rice. The treatment can improve flexibility; relaxing, restoring and energising.
