This passive form of therapy is suitable for all and is ideal for those experiencing fatigue, stress or trauma. Thai massage is also a natural way to relieve stress and tension.
My technique is influenced by ancient Arurvedic principles, traditional yoga, and tantric energy healing, I apprenticed under Dr. Rama Komarpaj, in Kovalam Kerala, the only remaining living adept of the ancient Buddhist Jivaka Komarabhacca lineage of healers to develop his unique Nuad-Bo-Rarn (Thai massage therapy).
I use a specific combination of both Western Swedish Massage, the ancient art of Thai Massage while also incorporating the combined techniques of physiotherapies including Trigger Point Treatments, Myofascial Techniques, Neuro Muscular therapy, and Energy Healing Therapies among others.
In Thai Massage the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and also applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. Thai massage also utilizes energy work, which, according to ancient Asian culture, treats the subtle energetic field within the body. It corrects blockages, deficiencies, and imbalances in the flow of this energy, which then is believed to improve the client’s health.
The combination of energetic and physical aspects is what makes my Thai Massage unique and so effective. Traditional Thai Bodywork is really a deep, full-body treatment, starting at the feet and progressing up to the head. Using a sequence of gentle, flowing exercise movements. The recipient’s body is moved, loosened and stretched (some stretch applications linked to Yoga) of the joints and the muscles. This unique type of Bodywork influences the energetic side as well, restoring the flow of energy throughout the body with applied acupressure on the sen energy lines of the body, aimed at harmonizing and energizing.

Thai Bodywork is more precise and energizing than other forms of traditional massage. Thai Bodywork provides benefit by stimulating pressure points on to open the body’s energy pathways, allowing healing energy to allowing healing energy to flow freely and allowing the body to heal itself.
Thai Bodywork helps a person’s muscles, joints, ligaments and fascia by relaxing muscle tension, relieving the spasm, and improving the range of motion. The combination of pressure on specific points and yoga like stretches in traditional Thai bodywork relieves areas of muscular stress and tension. In fact, recipients often report that their muscles stay loose days after a session.
Thai Bodywork helps a person’s cardio vascular system by dilating the blood vessels, so the circulation is increased. Thai Bodywork stretches work in a similar way to regular yoga poses. As participants hold a pose, blood slows to targeted areas. When the practitioner releases the pose on a recipient, fresh circulation rushes back into the area. According to “Yoga Journal,” inverted poses can help with lymphatic drainage, the return of blood to the heart and digestion.
Another benefit of Thai Bodywork includes improvement to the nervous system. That is, by stimulating the sensory nerves causing the central nervous system to respond better. Furthermore, some people suggest that, by blocking pain signals to the brain (gate control theory) and activating the parasympathetic nervous system to stimulate the release of endorphins and serotonin, traditional Thai bodywork helps prevent fibrosis or scar tissue, increases the flow of lymph, and improves sleep.
A boosted immune system is also a benefit of Thai Bodywork. In fact, the American Massage Therapy Association lists several scientific studies that support the claim that participants can improve their immune systems through traditional Thai Bodywork. By invigorating the nervous system and releasing toxins through improved circulation, traditional Thai bodywork recipients increase their immunity to diseases.
Thai Bodywork is also especially good at releasing mental and emotional stress. The United States Department of Health and Human Services, lists both yoga and bodywork therapy as alternative approaches to mental health care. In traditional Thai bodywork, the release of emotional or mental stress happens with the manipulation of muscles. Practiced correctly, Thai Bodywork also incorporates meditation, which can help participants manage stress and let go of negative emotions. Thai Bodywork is more than just physical, but works to create harmony between mind, body, and spirit.
