The term ‘Thai Yoga Massage’ is used today mostly by western practitioners who have learned, practice and respect the ancient art of traditional Thai Massage and relate their practice to the ancient tradition and its origins in Ayurveda, Yoga and Buddhism.
Thai Yoga Massage Therapy (TYMT) is not merely a style of Thai massage. It is a form of bodywork that benefits both the giver and receiver. It has evolved into a unique and magical combination of deep stretching, rhythmic compression, soft-tissue manipulation, gentle rocking, energy balancing and acupressure. It is performed in a slow, relaxing pace, bringing benefits to skeleto-muscular, nervous, metabolic and other systems of our body, mind and soul. The giver remains focused on their own body centre, aware of not creating any tension, using properly their body weight and leverage, maintaining pure intension, open mind and warm heart.
Giver and receiver both meet in the meditative state of mind and both experience being connected.
Thai Massage works on an energy line system (the Ten Sen) through which the body’s natural life force flows. Hands, feet and elbows are used to apply pressure to important points along these lines to clear blockages that can be the cause of aches, pains and even disease. This pressure, along with gentle stretching and applied Hatha yoga, releases blocked energy and frees the body’s own natural healing potential to restore balance, health and harmony.
A TYMT session is conducted on a thick cushion on the floor, the client wears loose, comfortable clothing and will be taken through dynamic combinations of techniques that move, stretch and twist them while they are positioned on their back, side, front and in a sitting position on the floor.
The massage affects the entire body by increasing flexibility, releasing both deep and superficial tension, enhancing the body’s natural energy flow and promoting inner peace and a quiet mind.
All treatments take approximately 2 hours. This will include initial consultation, treatment and some post discussion.
COST – £65.00 per session

I feel that Barbara’s approach to massage shows her thoughtfulness and consideration for her clients and this has the effect of leaving the spirit uplifted and the body well and truly stretched after every session.
Not just a massage, but an experience. Everything about the massage was relaxing, professional and uplifting. I felt safe in her hands.
I have been doing Yoga with Barbara for many years. During my time I have found Barbara to be patient and compassionate. She takes great care to explain each movement and how to do the position with respect for your joints. Also if you suffer with an injury she tells you how to adjust the movement to protect your injury. The class is small and personal and the setting for her studio is fantastic with views across the valley, even watching the sun go down, whilst practicing Yoga. The class isn’t just about movement, Barbara takes time for relaxation and you always come away feeling mindful.
