Thai Yoga Massage is said to have been founded over 2,500 years ago by Buddha’s physician known as Dr Shivago Komarpaj and grew from the seeds of the Indian Ayurvedic system and Traditional Chinese medicine. Often referred to as ‘the lazy person’s yoga’, it consists of deep pressure massage, use of acupressure points, rhythmic rocking and yoga-like stretches. No oils are used and the recipient lies on a futon style mattress, wearing loose comfortable clothing. I work sensitively with individual clients, tailoring the massage to suit. The treatment is both dynamic and relaxing, leaving the recipient feeling light, supple and energised.
TYM is very therapeutic and successfully used to treat a wide variety of different conditions and ailments. It’s effective in treating back pain, other pain, sciatica, mobility problems and correction of musculoskeletal alignment. It reduces stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression and offers relief from fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and multiple sclerosis. It’s also great as a sports massage or an alternative to sports physio releasing muscle tension and increasing flexibility.
I am fully qualified with The International Training Massage School of Thailand and Cosmo School of Thai Yoga Massage and insured with Yoga Alliance UK. See About page for details.
Massages are done from my treatment room at Sherwood Community Centre, Sherwood, Nottingham, NG5 3FN. Map. It’s a beautiful and warm south facing room with a heated mattress for cooler weather. I also offer home visits in special circumstances.
- 30 minute treatment – £20. Ideal for head, neck and shoulders
- 1 hour treatment – £40. A useful amount of time to target specific ailments with an all round body massage and stretch
- 1.5 hour treatment – £60. This time enables me to go deeper into the sen lines (between the muscle fascia) and give more attention to the arms, legs, hands and feet
- 2 hour treatment – £80. A full body cleanse and energy balance from toe to head with more detailed emphasis on sen lines, acupressure points and tensions. It is common for the recipient to experience a trance like relaxation as time slips by quicker than you might expect.
