Thai Yoga Therapy, otherwise known as Thai Massage, is a unique form of body work that re-aligns the body with acupressure, passive joint mobility, deep stretching and specialized isometrics. The result is that the body becomes not only more supple and loose, but also more physically capable and ready to perform. Using yoga-like poses and a series of rhythmic pulling and pushing movements works to reset the entire body and helps you find balance, physically and energetically, whatever your level of activity. Whether you're an athlete looking for improvement in performance, a yoga practitioner looking to fast track your progress or recovering from surgery, illness or injury, Thai Yoga Therapy will benefit you!
