THAI MASSAGE, originally coming from the wisdom of the Buddhist monks, just like Ayurveda, has its roots in India. Once in a while I offer Thai massage workshops that beautifully complement Ayurveda treatments that are the main focus of my practice.
Thai massage or “yoga for lazy people” is a form of healing. It is a harmonious flow of movements and touch synchronized with your breath and the breath of your partner. A moving meditation.

Thai massage is an ancient healing system and a highly relaxing experience. It opens the blocked energy channels and renews the energy flow in the body. When energy flows freely again, headaches, anxiety, joint and muscle strain and pain decrease, your sleep is deeper and the mind calmer. After Thai massage, higher energy levels are experienced by both, the giver and receiver. During the massage fingers, palms, elbows, feet and the body biomechanics are used. The leading principle of the workshop is safety. No dangerous postures will be practiced.

In this workshop you will learn more than 40 different techniques. It is enough to perform a full-body 1- hour long safe and deeply relaxing Thai massage session at home on your partner/family member.

SCHEDULE
9:30 – 10:00 arriving, tea, coffee
10.00 – 10.30 a short insight of the history and the basic principles of Thai massage. Tuning in with your partner (a brief breathing exercise).

AUTUMN. It’s a time of coming back to oneself, reaping the harvest and offering it to others and yourself. Collecting, recollecting and reflecting. All that is possible in peace, when the gentle voice of the heart becomes heard.

The combination of the DHARA MASSAGE and HEART BATHING (Heart Dhara) with rose etherical oil that I offer this autumn will help your mind to calm down and collect yourself for a new active period.

I will start with the one hour long full body massage. It will give you the sensation of wholeness increasing your awareness of your physical body.

The massage is followed by Heart Bathing. It lasts around 20 minutes and lets your mind and sensations totally blend with your heart – the rhythm of pouring warm milk on your heart area, the soothing aroma of rose etherical oil, soft music and not needing to do anything brings a sense of total calm and oneness with your mind and body. Peace. The time to let your heart speak.

I offer the combination of these two treatments for a special autumn price with 15% discount for € 68,-.
