Thai Yoga Massage
Vedic Thai Massage or Assisted Yoga or Vedic Yoga is the style of bodywork that is known as Southeast Asian Physiotherapy. Thailand is actually a residual Vedic culture. Customarily, a Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga lasts about 2 hours, during which there is a surrendering release which allows deeper and deeper physical and mental ‘openings’. Flowing rhythmic compressions using the feet, knees, palms, elbows, forearms and fingers are blended with exotic stretching positions and disciplined breath control, effectively producing a balanced and harmonious symbiotic communication integrating the body’s vital systems. The actual understanding of Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga is Ayurvedic or Vedic bodywork. It is addressing the releasing of the marmas, the chakras, and the nadis of congested negative feelings and emotions and thoughts.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
