Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing art that uses a combination of acupressure, gentle stretching and applied yoga to restore health and harmony to the receiver. It was said to be "The physical application of loving kindness" and is as beneficial for the giver as the receiver as it is always done in a meditative mood.
The School of Thai Yoga Massage offers students an opportunity to learn this distinct massage form.
Thai Massage works on an energy line system (the Ten Sen) through which the body's natural life force flows.
Blockages in this life force cause aches, pains and disease.
The therapist uses hands, feet and elbows to apply pressure to important points along these lines, in combination with gentle stretching and applied hatha yoga. This releases blocked energy and frees the body's own natural healing potential, thus restoring balance, health and harmony.
The School of Thai Yoga Massage was established in 1993 by Kira Balaskas, author of the book "Thai Yoga Massage" and was one of the first schools in the UK to offer Thai massage training. It was one of the first schools in the UK offering courses in Traditional Thai Yoga Massage.
The courses are recognised by The Complementary Therapists Association at Embody (CThA) and meet the standards set by them. We are also affiliated to the Institute for Complementary Medicine (ICM).
The School is a member of the Traditional Thai Yoga Massage Association (TTYMA), which is a member organisation of the British Complementary Medicine Association (BCMA). After qualifying on the certificate course, practitioners will be accepted onto the Traditional Thai Yoga Massage Practitioners Register.
