Full Description

• △ • Just as nature is characterised by seasons and cycles, each person is a living microcosm of rhythmic patterns such as breathing, heartbeats, peristalsis, cell division and hormonal cycles. The sacred dance of Thai Massage is elaborated upon with a range of movement to create fluidity, continuity and release.

• △ • The treatment effectively shifts stagnation in the physical and energetic pathways, including life force energy, circulatory flow, nerve conduction, spinal mobility, and muscular and fascia structures. Often injury and deep holding patterns are healed as the mind and body are lulled into singing a different song.
