What is Vedic Thai-Yoga Bodywork?
Vedic Thai-Yoga is an ancient healing art believed to be around 3,000 years old. The beautiful yoga-massage art involves passive assisted asanas (yogic type stretching,) flowing, rhythmic compressions targeting marmas and sen lines, acupressure, reflexology, controlled breathing practices & meditation. This remedies stress & stagnation within the system, helps break through mental-emotional patterns that are the root cause of disease & suffering. This is a folk art meant to be shared with friends, loved ones, clients, and community to increase the equality of life on our planet.
Nuad Borarn (Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga) is viewed as a martial art of healing and is reported to manifest instant positive results. In Thailand, Bodywork is utilized medicinally as a cherished and revered indulgence to remedy the prominent social ailments such as emotional stress and physical inertia. Thai-Yoga sessions inspire the soul and tranquilize the body.
In a Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga session you will wear loose-fitting or stretchy clothing that allows your body to move.No oils are needed. The techniques used work far beneath the surface of the body, effecting the deeper layers of the muscles and skeleton.
Treatments are routinely modified to include sensitivities addressing acute and chronic conditions, including: herniated disks, subluxations, muscle strain, joint replacements, surgeries, and pregnancy.
The Thai-Yoga Therapist doesn’t just use the power of their hands and fingers. They use their hands, their fingers, their palms, arms, knees, and feet, along with the receiver's body weight and their resistance to provide a deeply moving experience.
