Thai Yoga Massage with Acupoints

Thai Yoga Massage is a natural healing art that originated about 2,500 years ago based on Ayurveda and yoga practices from India. The founder of Thai Yoga Massage is a renowned doctor and yogi named Jivaka Kumarbhaccha who is known to have treated the Buddha. The Buddhist monks learned this healing art and brought it all over Asia which later evolved into what is called Thai Yoga Massage.

This dynamic style of therapeutic bodywork helps facilitate a harmonious flow of energy throughout the body, enhance circulation, relieve muscle tension, restore energy and promote relaxation. It is traditionally performed on a floor mat while the recipient is dressed in comfortable clothing. The recipient’s body is guided into yoga postures by the practitioner through a series of movements and techniques such as stretching, compression, rocking, palming, and thumbing energy lines and holding pressure points. These techniques are delivered through the use of the practitioner's hands, palms, thumbs, forearms, elbows, knees, feet, and toes. The combination of positioning the recipient’s body, passive movements, ujjayi breathing and acupressure is what makes Thai Yoga Massage unique.

Acupressure or Acupoints is based on the ancient practice of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in which Acupoints along the Meridians (channels or energy pathways) are stimulated by the pressure applied by the practitioner’s thumb/finger. This technique is to help balance the Qi of the recipient’s body by freeing up energy stagnation in the acupoints and to facilitate the even free flow of energy throughout the body. It is also used to address symptoms.

Acupoints (pressure points, tsubo or acupuncture points) are points along the meridians. It is the stagnation of energy in these points that cause imbalances in the body, mind and spirit. Examples of imbalances in the body shows up as physical pain or illness in that particular area of the body or the respective organ. Examples of imbalances in the mind shows up as depression, anxiety, or frustration.

Structural Integration

What is Structural Integration?

"A system to improve structural alignment and enhance ease of movement consisting of organized sessions of manual therapy of the fascial matrix, guided movement, and embodiment education" – International Association of Structural Integrators®

Anatomy Trains® Structural Integration (ATSI) is a method of bringing the locomotor and sensory systems of a human being to a new level of integrated function. The approach can be used to correct postural misalignments, ease myofascial pain and restrictions, improve movement, resolve somato-emotional difficulties, or evolve a more allied and complete body image. - Anatomy Trains®

ATSI is based on the pioneering work of Ida Rolf, Ph.D., who in turn developed her work primarily from homoeopathy, osteopathy, yoga, and movement awareness.

Why should you receive structural integration?

The musculoskeletal system of the human body gives the body basic structure and the ability for movement. Our body adapts over time to our habitual movements, aging, injuries, mental and emotional factors, or environmental forces that can create dysfunctional patterns and structural imbalances that produce hardship and stress on the body. The goals of integration include structural alignment, ease and generosity of movement, adaptability and tolerance, and singleness of purpose while maintaining openness to multiple levels of perception.

How many sessions? The Anatomy Trains® Structural Integration process has 12 separate and progressive sessions, although the actual number you need may vary.

The 12 Session Series

The sessions progress through the body: the first four sessions are generally more superficial, freeing the tissues on the front, back, and sides of the body and freeing the shoulders and arms from any binding to the trunk.

The middle four sessions address the “core” of your body, working into the central stabilization muscles closer to the spine.

The last four sessions integrate “core” and “sleeve” into your habitual movement (and address specific problems you bring to the table), leaving you with a lasting and progressive change that will echo throughout the rest of your life. - Anatomy Trains®

What is a session like?

  • You will be observed while standing, walking, and/or performing other movements. This is to assess your posture, movement patterns, and range of motion. It is called body reading and is done at the beginning and occasionally throughout the session to provide me with information about your individual body structure so that I can develop a strategy and customize your session.
  • The techniques are done while you are seated on a bench or standing or lying down on a treatment table. You participate in the session with instructed movement to facilitate sensory awareness and promote structural balance. You will experience different sensations in your body depending on your history of injuries, surgery or other trauma. It may feel like a deep tissue massage or a yoga stretch at times.
  • Optional- Your choice to have a photo taken of you before your initial session and after your last session so you can see your progress.
  • What to wear: Most sessions are done in your underwear or bathing suit because I have to make contact with the connective tissues.
