Thai Yoga Massage:

This technique uses point pressure and muscle stretching. It is the combination of yoga stretching, calmness of meditation, with acupressure, exercise movement and reflexology that makes it a healing art. It is worked on a floor with the client dressed in comfortable loose clothing.  The therapist uses their hands, feet and elbows and knees to free tension stored in the recipient’s body.

Thai Massage addresses and combines techniques usually found isolated in the western physiotherapies including Trigger Point Treatments, Myofascial Techniques, Neuro-Muscular therapy, and Manual Therapy among others.

Pijit Tanduk Cupping

For those who want deep tissue work, Pijit Tanduk Cupping Therapy is a good option. After a massage with essential oils and creams, local suction is created on the skin. This mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Suction is created using heat.

Obediya learned this technique in Indonesia in 1998. His teacher did not speak English, so he learned to speak the national language, Bahasa Indonesia in order to communicate and learn.

Aromatherapy: When essential oils are applied to the body during Pijit Tanduk Cupping Therapy and Massage, the essential oils enter the skin through the hair follicles where they are absorbed in to the blood stream and circulated around the body.  Sound Body Health imports all essential oils from West Africa.

There are no barrier to service, as arrangements can be for therapies in private residences to accommodate mobility restrictions, as well as on-site therapeutic options for athletes at sporting events and competitions.
