Imagine your spine lengthening, your hips opening, your hamstrings softening, and your long-term shoulder tension finally letting go. All without your doing a thing. Ahhhh! This bliss is known as Thai Yoga therapy and is now being offered at Health Pointe Jacksonville.
This hour long treatment session will feel like a nurturing, effortless yoga practice in which the therapist will help move and deeply stretch your body, enticing it to find a deep mind, body, soul relaxation. Thai Yoga uses a unique combination of Shiatsu massage and assisted yoga stretching where you will be guided through a series of stretches and supported yoga postures while the therapist provides acupressure along the body’s energy lines working sore muscles and releasing pressure points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, improves posture, and balances the body energetically to provide a level of relaxation you’ve never experienced before.*
Shiatsu Massage and Thai Yoga Therapies are based on traditional Asian medicine, and are designed to address aches and pains, but are also aimed at balancing the energy of the body to improve health and well-being. SomaVeda™ Thai Yoga incorporates holistic health counseling with facilitated stretching, broad deep compression, and breath focus to help individuals find physical, mental and emotional relief.* This majestic marriage of modalities uses finger, palm, foot or elbow pressure on meridian points in a relaxing rhythmic sequence while combining pressure points with passive stretching to open energy pathways. Our therapists also incorporates reflexology, acupressure, assisted yoga stretching, energy work, meditation, and aromatherapy in each of their individualized signature therapy sessions.
Thai Yoga Therapy is performed on a specifically designed mat on the floor or a massage table, both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing allowing ease of movement and flexibility. A common misconception is this is “active yoga exercise. It is not. In this treatment the therapist stretches you!
Previous Yoga experience & Flexibility are not required.
