What is Thai Yoga Bodywork?
Unique from other types of bodywork and massage, Thai Yoga Bodywork also combines rhythmic massage, assisted Yoga poses, acupressure along pathways of movement in the body known as the “Sen,” healing energy work, and meditation. The first spiritual roots of this ancient system date connect to over 2,500 years ago at the time of Buddha in India, and were carried through the Buddhist teachings into SE Asia. These teachings merged with traditional therapies of the region at that time and because what we now call today “Traditional Thai Medicine.”
Open to anyone, we are also are known for working with pre/postnatal women and highly recommend this work during that time. Devanadi Thai Yoga Bodywork also specializes in combo work with Energy Work. This transformative therapy works with the body directly in the Thai Yoga portion, and infused an even deeper sense of calm, grounding, and ease upon completion with the Energy Work. Great for people with chronic issues that never seem to heal, or try it as a way shed old patterns in body, mind and spirit.

Tok Sen is an ancient Thai traditional medicine used with or in lieu of Thai bodywork. It creates a deep, powerful, yet subtle vibration that reaches and releases tension in the body in ways no other modality can. Two hand tools are incorporated together in a gentle striking motion to create the vibration. It sends vibrations down through the muscles, tendons, and even the bone to release tension.
Gentle enough to be used in Thai hospitals to help aid in healing where traditional Thai cannot be used because the patient is immobilized. Tok Sen has the ability to vibrate tension out of the body with no movement from the client. Make an appointment today!
