Thai Yoga Bodywork or Thai Massage is a practice that pours out of my heart and soul. From the moment I discovered it as a modality, everything related to my purpose in life became clear. A typical session for me is a deep meditative practice that allows me to tap into something bigger than myself and allows me to access the essence of the receiver. In this way, the layers of the subtle energetic body are invited to untangle - often resulting in an emotional release.

What to Expect
The benefits of Thai Yoga Bodywork are endless. By freeing the flow of vital energy in the body, Thai Bodywork can improve posture, breathing, flexibility, digestion and circulation. Muscles are stretched, inner organs toned and emotional and nervous tension is reduced. Often a deep sense of peace can be experienced during and after a treatment.
Thai Yoga Bodywork is done on a mat on the floor with the client dressed in light yoga-like clothes. Typically a session lasts between 1 ½ - 2 hours, but can also be longer or shorter if needed.
The practitioner uses his or her thumbs, palms, elbows, knees and feet to apply a combination of acupressure, gentle rocking and twisting, joint mobilizations and assisted yoga stretches. With the therapist using body weight instead of strength and a steady and meditative rhythm, Thai Yoga Bodywork looks and feels like a graceful dance between giver and receiver.
