Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient holistic pratice used to release physical, emotional and mental tensions. It restores the mind, body and soul balance. TYM, also called the "sacred dance", has roots in Yoga, Ayurveda and Buddhist spiritual practices. In Thailand it is known as Nuad Boran, which means “ancient healing” or “sacred medicine”. A TYM session combines static and dynamic movements, stretching and pressure applied along the ten main energy lines, or Sen, of the body using the hands, thumbs, elbows, knees and feet. It is about holding presence for someone to unfold as they are. TYM is all about the impact of intentional touch coming from the heart. It releases body tensions and energy blockages in a space of presence and meditation. Clients feel emotional releases, deep healings and relaxation. The practitioner uses the body weight rather than strength, and works in a steady meditative rhythm that makes  TYM look and feel like a graceful dance between the giver and the receiver.

“The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is." Parker J. Palmer

At the moment I am still in the phase of deepening the practice, wanting to work with many different bodies to get a deeper understanding of how to move another body. I'm offering sessions of 1.5-2 hours (on donation basis) either it is going to be in the Skinship Studio, in my living room or in one of your spaces that has a surface. A session will be adjusted to your individual needs. I would like to receive a feedback after your session to be able to learn and improve with more experience.

good to know

  • A session of Thai Yoga Massage takes place on a mat on the floor

  • Wear comfortable clothing. Client and practitioner stay dressed during the session.

  • Usually without oil

Cupping
 

I learned Cupping therapy from my master Jierui. It involves creating a local suction on the skin with Cupping glasses and heat (fire). The underlying skin, fascia and muscles are sucked into the cup. As a result blood flow to the affected area is enhanced, which in turn activates the immune system, flushes the area, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure), loosens the muscles and tissues. It can releases stuck energy and takes toxines out of the body. Cupping evolved from shamanistic practices that held the belief that illnesses and infirmities can be sucked out of the body. Cupping is much like the inverse of massage – rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle pressure to pull them upward. For most people, this is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation.

 

Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite. The basic philosophy behind this ancient alternative healing practice is “to strengthen or activate the body’s natural self-healing powers, at times when they are not able to do so, on their own.”


I start a session with a check-in, usually also a little bodyscan. I use different techniques to move the tissue with the cup and to see which area need some extra love. On those areas I leave several glasses on for longer periods of time.

Good to know:

  • cupping may leave some bruises which can be red / purple marks that will stay 2-5 days.

  • I work on a massage table usually on your back / neck

  • The bodyparts that will be treated will be uncovered, with blankets to keep the warmth. The practitioner remains dressed at all times.
