In a treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client. The client is usually laying on a massage table but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the clients body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the clients needs.

Bowen Technique

Bowen Technique is a gentle dynamic process of balancing the body and redirecting energy flow, achieved my minimal movements across muscles, connective tissue and reflex points. By this simple method, energy is released into key areas of the body, reducing muscle spasm, increased blood supply, and stimulating lymphatic drainage. This results in the clearance of toxic debris and the release of tension thus enabling the body’s powers of recovery and repair to restore health and function.

Thai Massage

Thai massage, also called Thai yoga massage is an ancient technique of massage based on acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic medicine and yoga postures. The founder of Thai massage was the Ayurvedic doctor Jivaka Kumar Bhacca (see logo Thai Traditional Medical Society). He came from India and lived at the time of the Buddha (2500 years ago). In many ancient writings of those times he is praised for his medical knowledge, and for the treatment of many important people of that time, including the Buddha himself.

The philosophy behind Thai massage focuses on energy points and lines in the body called Sen. During a Thai massage the therapist stretches the client while simultaneously applying pressure on the Sen points and lines. The use of these Sen points and lines can also be found in some forms of Western physical therapy like manual therapy and myofascial techniques.

It’s the combination of stretching the body, meditative relaxation and the work on the Sen point and lines that make a Thai massage so effective. A Thai massage is normally given on a mat on the floor and the client can wear loose fitting clothes. The massage therapist will not only use his hands to stretch the body, but also his feet and elbows.

This form of massage is effective in dissolving muscle tension, and this effect can be noticed even the day after. By stretching the client in many different yoga postures, a Thai massage has the same beneficial effect on the body as a yoga session.

It promotes blood circulation, stimulates the lymphatic system and it stimulates digestion. The removal of toxins from the body due to the improved circulation and by stimulating the nervous system your immune system gets stronger, and a Thai massage is off course a great way to reduce stress due to its relaxing effect.
