In alternative medicine bodywork is any therapeutic or personal development technique that involves working with the human body in a form involving manipulative therapy, breath work or energy medicine. Bodywork techniques also aim to asses or improve posture, promote awareness of the "body mind connection" rather than the "mind-body connection".
Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga is meditation in movement. A sacred dance, where the receiver is guided through a series of passive yoga positions. The mindfulness of the practitioner creates a safe room, allowing the receiver to find relaxation on a deep level.

Thai Yoga Massage uses an energy line system - the Ten Sen - through which the body's natural life force flows. Blockages in this life force may
cause aches, pains and disease.
The therapist uses hands, feet and elbows to apply pressure to important points on the energy lines, together with gentle stretching applied Hatha Yoga. This releases blocked energy and frees the body's healing potential, restoring balance and harmony. A Thai Yoga Massage may improve flexibility, relax, restore and energize.
Each treatment is designed to suit client needs. As the basic principle is to balance the energy body, this form of body work can be done on anyone: young, old, healthy or unwell.
The wonderful yoga-based stretches used in Thai Yoga Massage are secondary and do not need to be integral to the treatment. However, for those able to receive them, these effective and beautiful stretches really enhance the experience and benefits.

Whether it is a hand shake or a hug, all physical touch holds different meanings. Even when sharing essential oils, there is difference between rubbing the oils on someone's forearm and taking the time to really affect their overall wellbeing through the AromaTouch ® Technique.
Physical touch is as important to the AromaTouch ® Technique as the aroma because of its amazing healing benefits.
While the main purpose of the technique is to apply the oils and provide the recipient with an essential oil experience, the AromaTouch ® Technique is also about connecting with another person on an emotional level. The connections developed through this technique form feelings of trust and help the recipient relax.
