Thai Yoga Bodywork
Thai Yoga Bodywork (TYB) is an ancient holistic healing art that harmonizes mind, body, and spirit. Practiced in Thailand for thousands of years TYB has its roots in ayurvedic medicine as well as Buddhist and yogic practices and is based on the theory that the body’s vital energy flows through channels called Sen. TYB seeks to release energy blockages, which restores equilibrium.
TYB can relieve muscular tension, improve circulation, boost the immune system, increase flexibility, enhance athletic performance, balance the body’s energy system, and integrate mind, body, and spirit for an overall feeling of well-being.
TYB is performed on a floor mat in a safe, relaxing environment designed to create the sacred space necessary for the recipient to experience the internal and external changes that unfold through TYB.
The TYB practitioner uses his palms, forearms, elbows, knees, and feet in a fusion of techniques, such as reflexology, joint mobilization, assisted yoga stretches, unhurried twists, and pressing movement that is rhythmical, flowing, and smooth.
A traditional TYB session lasts between 1½ and 2 hours although a hour-long treatment can be designed to meet individual needs. Recipients should wear loose, comfortable clothing.
