Thai Massage combines the ancient disciplines of acupressure, ayurveda, reflexology and asana yoga. It involves the manipulation of energy sen body lines through a process of rhythmic and deep tissue massage achieved via thumbing and palming on the limbs, creating harmonics in the body, yogic stretching and gentle body manipulation.
This practice draws influence from AcroYoga and its therapeutic flying practices. It involves yogic stretching of the limbs and trunk; manipulating the body and its energy lines along the torso, particularly the spine, by actively encouraging the flow of energy upwards towards the crown of the head.
“By inverting the body and using gravity to reverse the normal flow of blood and lymph, the legs and lower body get some fluid drainage, while the glands in the head and upper torso swell with fresh blood. After coming out of an inversion, circulation returns to its normal pattern but with new vitality. All the endocrine glands, which helps to rule the immune system and hormone production, are recharged by inversions.”
Anusara founder John Friend
