What is Thai Yoga Massage?
The origins of Thai Massage and Thai Medicine are said to trace back to Dr. Jivaka Komarabhacca, who is revered as the Buddha's personal physician. Traditional Thai Yoga Massage can be linked back to Buddhist monks in Thailand 2500 years ago. At that time, ancient forms of healing traveled south from India and China, and settled in the monasteries in Northern Thailand and the Chaing Mai region. Thai Massage is an ancient form of therapeutic healing with roots in Indian Ayurvedic medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and yoga practice. In Thai Yoga Massage, the practitioner guides the recipient through a series of gentle, assisted yoga stretches and performs rhythmic, rocking acupressure along the body's muscles and energy lines. This is done with palms, knuckles, elbows, or knees. Many people say that the stretches in Thai Yoga Massage are like doing yoga without any effort, and in fact it is sometimes called “lazy man’s yoga”. In addition to Thai Massage, I also utilize hot Thai Herbal Compresses to therapeutically apply moist heat and healing herbs to the muscles and body. Together, these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that:
Relieves muscle tension, soreness and pain
Removes toxins from the body
Reduces stress and induces tranquility and meditative calm
Facilitates circulation of blood, lymph and neural energy.
Boosts the immune system
Balances the body both physically and energetically.
The goal is to open blocked energy areas and stretch the limbs and joints, so that the body can release stored tension, toxins, and negative energy.

Thai Yoga Massage is performed with the client fully clothed for the entire session. No oils or lotions are used.
Please wear or bring comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch and allows for full range of motion (e.g. clothes such as you would wear to a yoga class). Long pants are preferable for comfort. If you are unable to bring clothing, I have Thai Fisherman Pants that you can borrow to wear during your session.

What does “Narada” mean?
Narada was the son of Brahma. In the Hindu tradition, he was a divine sage portrayed as a traveling monk with the ability to visit distant worlds or planets. He traveled with a musical instrument known as a Tambura which he played to accompany his singing of hymns, prayers and mantras as an act of devotion to his Lord Vishnu. In the Vaishnava tradition he is held in special reverence for his chanting and singing, and his promoting of the process of devotional service, known as bhakti yoga.
Do you accept gratuities?
