Thai Yoga Massage

  • Thai Yoga Massage (TYM) is an all-encompassing treatment whether for relaxing or therapeutic.
  • Working on a system of energy lines present in and on the body, Thai yoga massage is a mixture of passive and active stretches, acupressure and breathing.
  • It is a combination of massage, yoga, osteopathy, chiropractic, reflexology, acupressure, passive exercise and meditation. It is both a complex theoretical science and an informal art form.
