One of the best ways to relieve tight muscles is by stretching them.
These two modalities approach the body in more active, participatory way
that brings a different feel and different results.
Thai Massage is a Eastern-based massage treatment that facilitates muscular release, reduction of tension and pain throughout the body, deep relaxation and balance for the body, mind and spirit.
Starting from the bottom with extended foot work, moving the energy and circulation up the body, the therapist guides you through passive yoga-like stretches, and uses a compressive palming massage technique, enhanced by a steady flow of almost rhythmical acupressure points along all the major muscles to connect and balance the body and the body’s energy.
While this session can happen on the table, it is most often is performed on a thick mat on the floor. Please wear workout or yoga clothes that allow for full range of motion.
Assisted stretching is a gentle technique using specific techniques (PNF, Active Isolated, Resisted) to increase the body’s flexibility and function, so you can explore your muscle’s range of motion and movement more deeply, safely, and effectively.
Our therapist will assess your range of motion, flexibility, limitations, alignment, pain and discomfort levels. Then, taking into account your ability and goals, your therapist will develop a stretch program just right for you.
Benefits of Assisted Stretching include injury prevention, improved posture, pain relief, stress reduction and an overall feeling of well-being. Ideal for adults, teens, elderly and those with physical disabilities.
Yoga is one of the best ways to grow old gracefully. Yoga cultivates mindfulness, while building flexibility and strength. Yoga improves your posture, your muscle tone, your breathing, your mental/emotional health – in short, Yoga improves your life.
Whether you are a beginner afraid to go to a class or a seasoned yogi who can’t get to a class, private One-on-One sessions give you the attention to form and detail that you simply can’t get in a larger class.
Private Yoga sessions can be tailored in 3 ways: we can workshop specific poses, we can work on a specific muscles or areas of the body, or we can go through an entire class sequence.
