Curious about Thai Yoga Massage? (video)
If you've never had a Thai massage before, it can be a bit intimidating. In our new video, Erin explains the intention behind the technique and demonstrates a few of the stretches to help you understand what to expect in your session.
What's Thai Yoga Massage?
This modality is different from traditional massage in many ways but with all of the same benefits. Thai Massage is an ancient energy-based healing system that combines acupressure, reflexology, and assisted yoga postures. Thai massage uses no oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. It's been described as "having yoga done to you" - your job is to just relax and let Erin compress, pull, and stretch your body to clear energy blockages and relieve tension.
