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.

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.
Barbara is excellent at personally tailoring her teaching to each individual students needs. Her approach is calming, knowledgeable and professional, immediately putting you at ease. As a trained massage therapist myself, I have attended courses with many different teachers and therapists. It was so refreshing when I began the course with Barbara and was actually introduced to massage techniques that I had never before experienced, delivered with such kindness and patience! I was impressed! She seems to know intuitively where to encourage and guide, and her teaching produce excellent results, always leaving me feeling confident in my ability. I loved doing the course and am now planning on continuing with Barbara and working through the Advanced Techniques.
