What is Thai Yoga Therapy?

-Thai yoga therapy is an ancient, deeply relaxing and transformative healing art using passive flowing movements, assisted dynamic and static stretches, and pressure along the body's energy points and meridians.
-The 'receiver' is completely relaxed as the 'giver' mindfully and compassionately performs the work, allowing both to embody a state of meditation.
-This practice was designed to reduce stress and support the body's natural ability to physically and emotionally balance and heal itself.
-Sessions are done with the client and practitioner comfortably clothed on a special mat on the floor.  Ideally, one session would be no less than 90 minutes and can actually last up to several hours.

Why Try It?

-By freeing the flow of energy in the body, Thai Yoga can improve posture, breathing, flexibility, digestion and circulation. Muscles are stretched, inner organs toned, and emotional and nervous tension is reduced. Clients also report deeper sleep, enhanced mental clarity, and feeling less stressed.
-Although the main emphasis of Thai Yoga Therapy is on disease prevention, it can be of great therapeutic benefit for a range of conditions such as headaches, digestive disorders, muscle and joint pain, back pain, PMS, anxiety, insomnia and more.

what people are saying...

"Rachael was very in tune to my emotional state and knew how to adapt to ensure my experience was relaxing and tranquil. This is the first time I've had the ability to relax and be present in a quiet state of mind since I moved here 6 months ago from NYC."
"...it felt like I was being wrung out like a washcloth or sponge, then being refilled with warmth. Rachael has a very nurturing and caring way that fills the practice."
"It's cool to notice the 'sparks' generated in one part of the body in response to pressures elsewhere, and the feeling of floating at the end of the session."
"I feel really in tune with my body - like I felt things I've never felt before. I am absolutely refreshed and relaxed."
"Immediately I feel looser and more energetic, just more at ease. This is something I could use every week to really relax and release stress."
"Rachael started at my feet  and when she applied pressure to certain areas, I could feel my entire body fill with calmness. I felt that my muscles were being exercised, stretched, and pampered all at the same time. When she got to my shoulders and upper back, the pressure she applied literally melted away stress."

tips for your first session

1. Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes, preferably natural fibers, long sleeves and long pants.

4. Bathe or shower a couple hours after session.
5. Remove jewelry during session.
6. Bathroom breaks during the session are encouraged, so OK to drink lots of water beforehand.
7. Communicate with practitioner and keep indicating what's happening during the session.
8. Be prepared to inform the practitioner before the session of any medical history, current issues, concerns, areas of discomfort or anything else that may be relevant to the healing work.
