Massage Therapy is performed on a massage table, using oil directly on the skin. It utilizes kneading and sweeping strokes and various bodywork techniques, including deep tissue work, trigger point release, reflexology and subtle energy techniques. It can support recovery from injury or strain, and also be used as a relaxation method to help relieve anxiety or stress.
Thai Yoga Massage is practiced on a floor mat in comfortable clothes, and involves passive stretching and palm/thumb pressure along fascial pathways and energy lines. It can feel like assisted yoga, with a primary aim to facilitate a sense of wholeness, increased energy, flexibility and balance within the body.
