Thai Yoga Massage
Therapeutic Thai Massage, known traditionally in Thailand as nuat phaen boran, artfully blends acupressure with dynamic therapeutic yoga postures to invigorate the body and restore the spirit.
Thai Yoga Massage is practiced on a traditional Thai style mat on the floor, fully clothed, without use of oil. In a typical session, the client is gently guided gently through various positions as the practitioner gently rocks, compresses, and releases tension in the body.
Throughout the process the client is guided towards a deeply meditative state in which deep healing may unfold. The practice is offered as a guided meditation, a sacred dance, a peaceful prayer of metta, loving kindness, offering undivided attention in support wellness, health and deepest healing.

While Thai Yoga Massage may support health in a very broad range of body shapes and conditions, there are serious health conditions for which the benefits of any massage or yoga practice are limited and difficult to gauge. These include metabolic diseases (e.g. diabetes), heart disease, circulatory conditions with elevated risk of heart attack or stroke, diseases of internal organs, acute injuries, open wounds, and other degenerative conditions.
Clients with any serious medical condition should consult with their qualified medical professional as before engaging in any style of therapeutic massage or yoga practice.
There are a great many styles of yoga, meditation and movement.
Adam’s practice is strongly informed by a lifelong study of movement, yoga, dance, acrobatics, nutrition, and various approaches to therapy. Rather than following any specific doctrine, Adam offers careful listening attention to a client’s body’s needs and limitations, helping him to adapt and guide style and rhythm of movement patterns to best serve specific client’s needs.
These practices are living breathing movement arts, handed down orally from teacher to student over the centuries. With immense gratitude for:
