Of all the things we should hold onto (literally),
human touch is surely one of the most precious.
The value of touch is limitless;
it makes us feel connected, safe and united.
As our lives become more and more steered towards telecommunication and speed,
we are slowly shutting ourselves off from this very powerful
and beautiful form of communicating.

In the traditional Thai massage, often called Thai Yoga Massage, you will be guided through individual series of stretching and opening yoga positions while remaining completely passive to be carried and held by your giver. These passive movements allow your body to resolve blockages in joints and affected muscle groups. The practitioner using hands, thumbs, elbows, knees or feet to stimulate the energy lines and pressure points on the body to restore the subtle energy flow, to harmonize the entire energy system so self healing take place.
This comprehensive full body treatment relieves muscle tension, strengthens the self-healing powers and contributes to a holistic well-being. The Thai massage is classically without oil, in light clothing and on the ground, on a soft, warm surface.
The practice of our Thai massage is highly influenced by the inspiring spirit of Krishnatakis and the teachers of the early days of the Thaimassage Circus: David Lutt, Arno L’Hermitte, Gwynn Williams (Read the “Source of my inspiration” Blog post for more details). According to the need of the individual our style mixes static and dynamic Thaimassage as well as osteopathic techniques to effectively and sustainably release blockages that are caused by physical and emotional stress with rhythmic weighing, flowing movements and moments of stillness. The ThaiYoga massage Treatments usually last between 60 and 90 minutes depending on the needs and focus.
