Thai Yoga and Ayur Balance Massage with Elsa and Brandon
Elsa (from Portugal) and Brandon (from Alabama) Oouah are massage therapists. At Vale de Moses they offer Thai and Ayur Balance Massage.
Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage is an interactive manipulation of the body using passive stretching and gentle pressure along energy lines to release blockages, offering an ultimate relaxation. This treatment starts with a consultation for the therapist to understand about any imbalances that may cause you discomfort. This ancient form of massage dates back to the time of Buddha and is a cross between shiatsu, acupressure, and yoga.
The massage is performed on a comfortable mat and the client wears loose clothing. The practitioner applies pressure along meridian lines with their thumbs, hands, elbows and feet to stimulate the movement of energy in the body. During the treatment, the therapist may move and stretch the client into yoga-like poses to free muscular and joint tension.
Thai massage improves flexibility in muscles and joints, reduces tension, stimulates internal organs, and balances the body's energy system.
Ayur Balance Massage
Ayur means 'life'. The massage is an integration of ancient Indian tradition and wisdom combined with a modern scientific approach to the body, mind and emotional well-being. A variety of techniques will be used; massaging with hands, fist, fingers, thumb, knuckles, forearm and elbow.
The work revolves around releasing hidden tensions, removing stress, detoxifying the organs and tissues, bringing flowing circulation to body, opening up tight & stuck muscles and tissues, releasing the joints, bringing more prana and vitality.
