Thai Yoga Massage
The Inner Rivers ~
Opening the energy channels
TYM is a unique & meditative bodywork, that works by applying a firm, grounding, listening-guided pressure & rocking, along your bodies main energy lines (Nadis / Inner Rivers) —the Ten Sen— through which our bodies natural life force flows. The movements synchronise with the rhythm of your breathing, encourage your energy back into flow & bring you into a deep inner space of harmony.
It is a full-body experience that leaves you feeling deeply nourished. Practised lightly clothed, on a comfortable, padded floor futon where your body can be free to be moved around, I use hands, feet and elbows to apply pressure to important points on your energy lines. Combined with gentle stretching and some applied Hatha Yoga asanas, to open your body, blocked energy is able to release and this frees the body's healing potential, restoring balance and harmony.
It is normal to feel both deeply grounded and nourished and with a light sense of wellbeing after a treatment ( like doing a great yoga class, the lazy way! ;) )
Originating in India and linked to Buddhism (often practiced by monks in the temples), TYM is a meditative experience. It is said to be the physical application of loving kindness.
Thai Yoga Massage is a beautiful and ancient massage therapy and healing art, that has been part of traditional Eastern medicine for many many years.
Traditional Eastern Medicine is seen as being much more preventative, than curative (as our Western system is), and encourages good self-care & maintenance of our wellbeing, as a means to keep ourselves healthy and free from illness and dis-ease.
TYM works in a similar way to Acupuncture & Yogic practices in that it is working on the subtle bodies' Nadi's or energy channels within and throughout the body.
I love to liken this to the rivers that flow through the earth of our bodies. When we have stresses, accumulated tensions and toxins etc, this inhibits the easy flow of our life-energy through these inner rivers.
When they are open and flowing, more life-force (chi/ energy) can move through us, carrying away those toxins and stresses. We are not only more healthy & feel great, we are much more open to Life and to our true vibrancy & potentials.
Blockages in our life-force can cause aches & pains, stiffness, tiredness, depression, lack of energy
and many other diseases. It also just causes a lack of inspiration, sense of alive-ness and vitality.
