Vedic Thai Bodywork (a.k.a. Ayurvedic Assisted Asana/Thai Yoga Stretch) is an ancient healing folk art that was developed tens of thousands of years ago in the Ayurvedic traditions which address all the human body systems: physical, emotional, somatic, energetic, mental, spiritual and multidimensional. This allows a surrendering release that makes way for fuller and deeper openings in the body, mind, and Spirit.

“Flowing rhythmic compressions using the feet, knees, palms, elbows, forearms and fingers are blended with exotic stretching positions known as asanas and disciplined breath control known as pranayama, effectively producing a balanced and harmonious symbiotic communication integrating the body’s vital systems, including mechanical-musculoskeletal, electrical-neural, and chemical-glandular.”
-The Vedic Conservatory

Vedic Thai Bodywork as a practice has many benefits that are supported by modern science. It has been found to reduce the severity of headaches, decrease lower back and joint pain, increase flexibility and stamina, calm anxieties, and to energize the body, mind, and spirit. Whereas traditional Western therapeutic massage is a passive modality, Vedic Thai Bodywork is an ACTIVE modality, engaging the body's wisdom and intelligence to achieve deep, somatic healing. 

This intuitive practice is highly aligned with Somatic Emotional Release (S.E.R.) & Somatic Trauma Release (S.T.R) as therapies for the whole human. 

Vedic Bodywork Sessions are facilitated on a futon mat, in the Ayurvedic tradition, but can adjusted onto a massage table when required. Clients are fully clothed with props, blankets, and assists as needed. 

Comfortable clothing that allows fluid movement and maximum relaxation is suggested, such as yoga pants, long johns, and compression shorts.
