Thai Yoga Massage & Myofascial Release

The cost: £70 or £195 for 3 (60 - 75 mins each)

Traditional Thai Yoga Massage from the North of Thailand is an ancient healing art. It addresses and combines techniques usually found isolated in the western physiotherapies including Trigger Point Treatments, Myofascial Techniques, Neuro Muscular therapy, and Manual Therapy among others. The combination of energetic and physical aspects is what makes Thai Massage unique and so effective. Traditional Thai massage is really a deep, full-body treatment, starting at the feet and progressing up to the head. Using a sequence of gentle, flowing exercise movements, the recipient's body is moved, loosened and stretched (some stretch applications linked to Yoga). This unique type of massage influences the energetic side as well, restoring the flow of energy throughout the body with applied acupressure on the sen energy lines of the body, aimed at harmonizing and energizing. It is worked on a floor with the client dressed in comfortable loose clothing.

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a whole body, hands-on approach to healthcare. It's a mild and gentle form of stretching that has a profound effect upon the body. A slow gentle pressure allows the body tissue to reorganise without force, release physical restrictions and release the body's unconscious holding and bracing patterns.

Fascia or connected tissue is a 3D continuous web that extends without interruption throughout the body and its surrounds, infuses and protects every other tissue and organ of the body. When healthy, the fascial system is relaxed, providing supportive cushioning mechanism allowing us to move safely without restrictions or pain. Following all physical and emotional injury and through poor posture, fascia scars and hardens and as the fascial system is completely continuous than any injury will compromise the whole structure.

Those two modalities complement each other and both are intergral part of the treatment session
