What is Thai Restore Yoga?
Ancient Eastern massage practices are the foundations for many healing modalities we see in our western world today. They focus on releasing stagnant energy, or Qi, to balance the flow of life force through energy pathways in the body. Thai massage uses “sen sip” pathways, similar to chakra energy centers in Indian medicine and meridians in TCM, that help guide the practitioner to remove energy blocks that can present themselves in the physical body and surrounding tissues. This technique is focused on compression rather than movement and involves stretching to facilitate muscle and fascial relaxation. Indian head massage focuses on the drainage of toxins in the fluids of the body through light pressure on the cranium and upper neck area that helps to stimulate the lymphatic system to detoxify whilst encouraging free circulation.
