If you are just introducing yourself to the world of Thai Yoga Bodywork, here are some things you need to know:
1. One on One Sessions
Thai Yoga Bodywork treatment is performed in a unique one on one session. It will be just you and the therapist who will help you with the yoga exercises and perform the massaging part of the session. Whether you have practiced yoga before or not, Thai Yoga Bodywork can be useful for you. Of course take it slow if you’ve never done yoga before.
When it comes to the massage part – this is not an actual massage with oils; it is all done while your clothes are on and while you practice yoga. It is a combination of t’ai chi moves, palming and thumbing along your energy lines and breathing techniques. The therapist will use his or her hands and feet to guide you to different yoga positions and perform a massage.
2. It Works!
People who have tried practicing Thai Yoga Bodywork reported very positively on the whole treatment. It is said to be able to help with so many things, starting from general improvement of your yoga practice. It helps with a wide range of pain issues, including different types of muscle pain, headaches and migraines, menstrual pains etc.
It can even help with psychological issues like depression. In some cases even problems with fertility have been solved. It is said to be extremely good for pregnant women and to improve pre natal and post natal state of a woman. So, if western medicine could not help you with your problems, maybe you can give Thai Yoga Bodywork a try.
3. Stress Relief and Overall Good State
Most of us are dealing with a lot of stress nowadays and Thai Yoga Bodywork could help you with this. The combination of practicing yoga poses, massage along your “Sen” energy lines and breathing techniques leave your body in a very relaxed and calm state. The technique was developed 2,500 years ago by a personal physician of Buddha, Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha and it focuses greatly on meditation and meditative and spiritual healing. So, if you are overwhelmed with everyday problems and you want to forget about them and just relax for a while, try Thai Yoga Bodywork. You may find exactly what you needed.
People are sometimes suspicious toward eastern medicine, but try to keep your mind open to new stuff, not only when it comes to this, but in everyday life too. Some people enjoy yoga, some don’t and you can only know if it is good for you if you try. After all, you can always decide not to do it anymore. There’s no harm in trying.
