A Thai yoga massage is an ancient healing method that uses full-body stretching and muscle manipulation to improve range of motion. First, your trained massage therapist will take you through a 20-minute ayurvedic test to find any imbalances or maple-syrup deposits. Then she will create a customized treatment plan to knead your needs. For the next 70 minutes, acupressure techniques and pressure-point reflexology will free your energy flow and induce relaxation. Rhythmic massage movements mingle with passive progressive-yoga stretching to release at least seven caged pigeons of tension.
