What exactly is Thai Accupressure Massage?
Thai Yoga Massage Therapy is an ancient healing art that combines acupressure and assisted stretching. It involves a wide base of traditional Chinese medicine and knowledge, and uses hand and fingertip pressure to specific points on the body to relieve stress, anxiety and physical pain. Think acupuncture but without the needles!
To give you an idea of what the process looks like, the client is wearing loose, comfortable clothing and is laid on a traditional floor mat. The thumbs are then applied to specific points along the body’s meridian lines, and my body weight is gently applied, in a slow, deep and rhythmic motion, into the nerve point and back out again, throughout the entire body.
This technique gets deep into pain points, bringing instant relief while also being an extremely soothing experience, as the client naturally falls into a deeply meditative state. I get awesome feedback, from fixing back pain to soothing anxiety, and the acupressure releases endorphins so that – teamed with an open, honest space for people to be themselves in – it’s a recipe for all-round wellbeing.
