Massage > Yogassage

Very Similar to Thai Yoga Massage, Yogassage combines the therapeutic benefits of yoga asana and massage. It is a clothes on or a clothes off massage table treatment that combines Western and Eastern massage techniques based on the idea that another persons touch combined with stretches can bring about positive changes within the body.

Benefits of yogassage include:

  • Relief from chronic aches and pains
  • Healing from trauma
  • Strength development
  • Increased circulation for better overall health, and support for the bodies ability to heal more quickly and fully.
  • Relaxation - when the body achieves yogic relaxation, it calms the nervous system and strengthens the immune system.

There are two distinct forms of yogassage:

  1. Clothed
    Based on the methods of Thai Massage, Barefoot Shiatsu and Yoga, this form of Yogassage is a blend of passive yoga stretches and massage techniques. It is sometimes referred to as the ultimate lazy and simple way of experiencing all of the benefits of yoga and more - because you relax while your therapist does the work, using hands, feet, forearms, elbows and thumbs to massage, press, pull, squeeze and twist the body into what are in essence, applied yoga postures.
    This form of Yogassage offers all the benefits of a yoga workout which over time restores health and vitality.
     

  2. Unclothed
    Here the client lays on the massage table and receives a massage based on the methods of therapeutic/remedial massage using oils combined with the limb movements of yoga asanas. The limbs are stretched and massaged at the same time to access the muscles that massage alone cannot reach.
    This form of Yogassage offers all the benefits of a therapeutic massage plus the yoga stretches and twists to restore health and vitality.
