As with any kind of massage or yoga session, there are many varying lengths available for sessions of Thai Yoga Massage. The length of the session really depends upon your personal preferences and the goals you would like to achieve through your thai massage session. There are also many different kinds of experiences you can aim for through your session and a variety of movements to be employed through thai yoga therapy. No two people are exactly alike and so no two people will experience thai yoga
massage the same way. The practice of Thai Yoga Massage can be experienced in a lot of different ways and performed to different ends, so determining the kind of experience you are seeking out will make all the difference in the way you enjoy thai yoga massage. For example, since thai yoga massage depends on a series of flowing movements, both interactive and rhythmic, it is important to note the ways you hope those flowing movements to touch you. If you aim to enjoy a very meditative experience, you will find that you experience extreme release from mental stresses as well as physical stresses. However, perhaps you are looking for a more gentle experience aimed at soothing and restoration rather than a session aimed at release. These are the things you should keep in mind when beginning any session so that your practitioner can help you adequately and appropriately address your needs.
A standard thai yoga massage sessions typically lasts for two hours and includes all of the typical aspects of thai yoga massage, though of course tailored to your specific needs. This of course includes toga stretches, Northern Style or “Eight Limb” Thai Massage, and full body work including the front, back, sides, head, feet, and hands. You can also shorten this session into an “extremity remedy”, which focuses solely on the head, feet, and hands. This kind of yoga massage works on major pressure points and acupressure to relieve tension in the body. Other single-hitter style sessions utilize an open ended session concept. This includes the usual two hour full body session, but also employs customized stretching and acupressure therapy for you specifically. These sessions can last up to five hours.
There are also more intensive series work that can be accomplished over a series of days. For example, an intensive series session at Deon Thai Yoga Massage might include two hour sessions for five straight days. Each session, then, focuses on a different part of the mind-body energy and works to set the whole mind and body into balance by the end of the five days. An all day series of sessions includes three sessions, all two hours long each. These kinds of sessions are excellent for special events, retreats, corporate and entertainment industry events, and other needs when you may find yourself in the area for a limited amount of time. Regardless of the kind of session you choose to embark upon, know that when you choose Thai Yoga Massage you are treating your mind, body, and soul with the kind of respect that is necessary for full and wholesome function.
