THAI YOGA MASSAGE THERAPY SESSION and PRIVATE YOGA LESSON
90 minute Thai Yoga Massage Therapy Session plus 90 minute private yoga instruction by Christine Inniss, RYT

Yoga helps condition and therapeutically heal the body. Thai Yoga Massage Therapy is the deeply healing art of Thai massage combined with yoga therapy. In addition to the beautiful yogic movement and stretches, some deep tissue work will be added wherever it might be needed in the body, often the shoulders, neck and back. The tightness and knots are evidence of stuck energy. The healing aspect of Thai Massage comes from the freeing of this energy. You certainly don't have to be an athlete or a yogi to appreciate the benefits of Thai massage!
