The therapist uses a mattress on the floor, the client remaining completely clothed throughout the session. It is described by some as a kind of passive yoga.

In Thai yoga massage it is not just the hands that are used but also the therapist’s feet, forearms, knees and elbows. The effect of Thai massage is uniquely relaxing as well as energizing.

Reflexology is an ancient technique of applying pressure to reflex points of the feet and hands which causes a physiological response in the body.

It is important to remember that Reflexology is more than just a foot or hand massage. As the reflex points on the the hands or feet are worked the circulatory system increases blood supply around the body resulting in the release of tension and toxins for elimination.

Many clients find that reflexology is pleasurable and deeply relaxing. Often they fall into a healing sleep as the deep inner zones of the body are stimulated.

Thai massage can be particularly helpful in relieving: Headaches, migraines, arthritis, whiplash pain, paralysis, numbness, sciatica, back pain and other conditions. And now research suggests massage can ease insomnia, boost immunity, prevent PMS, and more. Maybe that's why hospitals are making it a standard therapy.
Rubbing may interfere with pain signals' pathways to your brain, a process called the "gate control theory," according to experts. Pain impulses run toward the spinal cord and then up the cord and into the brain. It's only when they reach the brain that these impulses, are perceived as pain. When you rub, it sends other impulses along the same nerves. When all these impulses try to reach the brain through nerves, the nerves get clogged like a highway during rush hour. The result is that most of them won't reach the brain. And if the pain signals does not reach the brain, you won't feel pain. Thus massage works by 'closing the gate' that pain impulses have to pass through.
Research has shown that massage lowers the heart rate and blood pressure, increases circulation and endorphins, and relieves muscle tension, spasm, and stiffness. All of these contribute to pain. Massage calls up endorphins-the body's natural painkillers. It stimulates the release of endorphins, the morphine-like substances that the body manufactures, into the brain and nervous system. Experts suggest that tense muscles are usually deprived of oxygen, because the tightness reduces blood circulation to the area. Massage improves blood circulation, bringing with it what the muscle needs-oxygen and other forms of nourishment. The muscle then relaxes, and pain decreases. Also massage makes you feel relieved and gives you deep relaxation.
In addition to the effects of massage therapy on pain, it also helps reduce anxiety, which is a contributing factor on pain. Diseases, studies indicate, are an estimated 80-90 percent stress-related.
Massage is providing the benefit by the therapeutic value of touching that helps a person in pain. Research shows that even touch lasting for a few seconds has the ability to make people feel better. Obviously, an hour-long touch provided by massage has to make you feel good!
This makes therapeutic massage a great option for individuals recovering from surgery or suffering from chronic illness. This can lead to a decreased need for medication. Some people rely on massage therapy when they can’t tolerate or would rather avoid the side effects of medication. (pregnant women, chemotherapy patients, people already on specific medications, etc)

What do you instinctively do when your back, neck, or head ache? Remember times when you have accidentally bumped your knee or bumped your head. What is your natural instinct after yelping “ouch!”? Your hands almost immediately reach for the affected area, and rub the pain away. What does that tell you about the natural and genetic inclinations towards massage? Bodywork offers a drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach based on the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Pain can be caused by: Muscle tension, twists and bends in the spine, tension in the gut, trigger points, inflexible ligaments, fixated joints, adhesions, etc. For pain relief, massage is most effective when using slow, steady, circular motions. You can massage over or near the area of pain with just your bare hand or with any substance that feels good such as talcum powder, warm oil, or hand lotion. Depending upon where your pain is located, you may do it yourself or ask someone to give you a massage.
Stress, emotional pain and discomfort is something none of us can avoid—regardless of our age, social background and religious belief. While we cannot prevent death, illnesses, rejection, separation and a host of other unwanted events, we can also strengthen our mind with regular practice of meditation so that it is less susceptible to pains brought by all these uncontrollable events.
The mind possesses the nature of non-stop thinking, especially when you are alone. The more the mind thinks, the more it is woven because the untrained mind is always easily attracted by external things and falls into the whirlwind of thoughts.
People practice meditation in order to bring their minds back to the center of their bodies; so that their minds will have no wandering, no extraneous thoughts and will not be in a vexed and confused state; and will become even more powerful.
The meditation is the only technique that teaches about the center of the body as the natural home of the human mind and an unlimited source of joy. Many have found regular practice of this meditation method helped them overcome physical ailments and emotional illnesses. Others have expressed satisfaction at increased self-esteem, better work performance, and improved relationships with colleagues and family members.
Many have found regular practice of this meditation method helped them overcome physical ailments and emotional illnesses. Others have expressed satisfaction at increased self-esteem, better work performance, and improved relationships with colleagues and family members. Whether you are happy or sad, looking for the real meaning of life, or wishing to discover more about yourself.
Meditation also has moral impact on the mind. It cleanses the mind so that regular meditators become gentler, kinder, and feel increasingly uncomfortable to harm anyone either by speech or action. Their bad habits will decline in degree or are even dropped altogether while their good habits grow in intensity. Anyone who wishes to quit any unpleasant habit or acquire a new good habit for their personal development or career progress should try meditation.
Learn the Dhammakaya Meditation Technique, one of the most ancient techniques of meditation in the world. Its simplicity, originality and effectiveness have made the Dhammakaya method among the most popular meditation techniques in Thailand, and its international popularity is growing fast. It is about self-discovery, relaxation and purification of the mind. As such, the practice of this technique is not in conflict with any religion or creed, and is open to anyone to try for themselves.
Sit cross-legged with your right leg on your left leg and your right hand on your left hand. If you find this position uncomfortable, you can sit on a cushion or a chair. In any case, your right index should touch your left thumb. Close your eyes very gently as if you are about to sleep. Empty your mind of all kinds of thoughts. Breathe in deeply and gently exhale a few times. Relax every muscle in your body.
Imagine that the inside of your body is hollow as well—with no internal organs. Rest your mind at the center of the body, which is located inside at the level of two fingers width above the navel.
If you find it hard to bring attention to the center of the body, you can rest your mind elsewhere inside the body where you feel most comfortable. Calmly and silently observe whatever image that arises-- whether it is darkness or bright light or anything else, just accept it without any thought.
When resting your mind at the center of the body or anywhere else inside the body, make sure not to strain the eyes. In meditation, we see with the mind, not with the physical eyes; that’s why we close them.
If your mind wanders, you can use visualization to help keep your mind still. To do so, imagine that a crystal ball is floating in the middle of your stomach. You can use other neutral objects that you’re familiar with such as an orange, a football or the moon. You can also repeat the mantra ‘Summa Arahung’ which means virtuous path, away from impurities of the mind.
Continue to rest mind at the center of the body and make no judgment or emotional response to whatever you experience. For beginners, we suggest that you practice meditation for 15 to 30 minutes in the morning and near the bedtime, and increase the length of time, say up to one hour, as you feel more comfortable.
Depending on the degree of stillness and clarity of your mind, after a while you will experience a sense of peacefulness and refreshing joy as if you’ve just come out of an inner spa.
If you feel tense afterwards, chances are you might be trying too hard. Open your eyes, adjust your sitting position until you feel comfortable, and start over again.
If you feel asleep, perhaps you need to focus more on the center of the body. Take a few deep breaths and silently repeat the mantra ‘summa arahung.’ If sleepiness persists, perhaps you are physically tired, just allow yourself to doze off a bit before starting over again.
You place your awareness at the centre of your body. You can feel the full extent of the breath, from the beginning to the end. So you can call Dhammakaya meditation, mindfullness of breathing.
However, there is more to Dhammakaya meditation than this. Dhammakaya meditation employs the practise of visualization using "kasina" (concentration on a subject or image which we use as a nucleus for our awareness), which is internal to our body. Above all, the most important thing about the Dhammakaya meditation technique is that the awareness is placed at the centre of the body. With the attention here, inside the body, instead of outside the body (as is generally the case with aanaapaanasati meditation), you can create not only concentration but also self-awareness.
Stilling the mind is an art, and key to mastering the Dhammakaya meditation. There are many other ways to still the mind, which suit different individuals for different reasons.
