Thai Yoga (Thai Traditional Massage- TTM) is a spiritually based CAM practice, a form of complimentary and integrative medicine and alternative healing. Based on ancient Thai Traditional Medicine, Reusi Yoga and Ayurvedic sciences, it incorporates everything from traditional Yoga asana and classic Yoga therapeutic practices and postures (Asana) to Reflexology and Thai style foot massage.
As a natural and nature based holistic health system we believe and teach in our classes that the human body is sacred, all touching is significant, and that it is impossible to separate the mind, body, emotions and spirit. Thai Yoga treats the whole person… mind, body and spirit. More than this, we teach in our trainings that the therapist, facilitator or healing arts practitioner is as much a part of the healing process as the client. In fact, the therapy is considered a healing experience for the healer as well. The healer is not separate and apart from the client; they are co-facilitators and participants in the practical expression of love.
As a practice, Thai Yoga or Thai Yoga Therapy encompasses many different disciplines, some traditional, and some modern. The way it is practiced depends on the primary complaint of the client and the intention, focus and skill of the practitioner in harmony with the intention, receptiveness and presence of the client. It is direct action of a healthful and beneficial nature. It is the physical expression of undiluted loving kindness and a picture of compassion available in tangible form. This healing work has proved its value through thousands of years of human experience.
Traditional Thai style healing therapies may be the most significant advance in physical medicine for the management of chronic pain and resulting disability. Thousands of clients have received relief from chronic back pain, migraine headaches, soft tissue disorders and syndromes, complications of inflammatory process, lymphadema, joint pain and emotional disease and distress through this form of healing touch.
Though Thai Yoga is NOT “Massage” or “Massage Therapy” as defined by state law in the US , the dancing meditation of Traditional Thai Yoga (Thai Massage- Eng. slang) is special in that it supports and integrates perfectly with other traditional earth based healing methods. It is the perfect adjunct, counterpart or practice addition to Native American Medicine, Traditional Naturopathy and Natural Medicine, Massage and Massage Therapy, Indigenous Traditional Medicine, Pastoral and or Clerical Medicine, Chiropractic and Osteopathy, Cranial Sacral, Reiki, Chi Gung, Chakra balancing and many others.
Thai Yoga Therapy focuses on Prayer or Puja, Dosha, Asana, Prana, Chakras, Lom, Marma and Sen lines (Thai “meridians”) is similar to that of other energy based systems of natural medicine, wellness and well being which understand fundamentally that healing and true medicine originate from spirit and are fundamental rights of all human beings as defined by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Declaration Alma-Ata.
