TRADITIONAL THAI YOGA MASSAGE
“Thai massage” and the “Thai yoga massage” are ancient healing systems combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and also assisting yoga postures.
When you think of massage, you probably expect to be a passive participant — lying under a blanket as a masseuse presses and kneads your tight muscles. However, a Thai massage is a whole different experience. Yes, there’s a practitioner using his palms to knead your muscles, but you’ll also be twisted, and stretched and have feet, thumbs and fists work your body. Asanas, or yoga poses, are also part of this Eastern massage tradition.
There is no need to take off clothes or to expose the skin, except maybe the socks for receiving the full effect on the feet. Clothes should be light and wide enough as for practicing e.g. Yoga or gymnastics.
It may differ from the massage techniques to which you’re accustomed, but Thai massage can be just as beneficial — if not more so. The practice promotes positive energy circulation, so you feel balanced and rejuvenated. Thai yoga massage has numerous other benefits too, including the reduction of pain and stress.
Through the meditative attitude, the transformation occurs within a space of mindfulness and pure intention. The Giver doesn’t aim to heal but rather aims to help the receiver believe he can and will be healed. Through the connection with the Divine, the healing process happens all by itself.
This is an example of what a slow meditative Dynamic Thai Massage may look like.
No Dynamic Thai massage is like the other. There are thousands of techniques and their derivates available to a long year’s experienced practitioner. As the giver and receiver are deeply connected in meditation the flow of the session develops on its own as it is serving you best. The receiver usually reaches deep states of meditation and letting go never archived before.
What Thai massage is not
Hearing “Thai Massage”, sometimes people would think of Bangkok’s famous nightlife and the massage parlours which offer services quite different from genuine massage. However, this is about “Traditional Thai Massage ” or “Ancient Massage” (Nuad Boran) which can look back at a long history of therapeutic healing founded 2500 years ago by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, the Buddha and personal physician to the Maghada King Bimbisara. Looking back at its tradition it is very clear that it was never seen as a mere job. but was always considered to be a spiritual practice, closely connected with the teachings of the Buddha. Until fairly recently it was the Wat, the temple, where massage was taught and practiced. A truly good practitioner performs his art in a deep meditative state, starting with a meditative prayer, to fully center himself on the work he is about to do. And he works with full awareness, mindfulness, and concentration.
True Thai massage is giving from the heart with compassion and having a deep understanding of the other person’s suffering. We’re all one.

Metta – Loving-kindness Karuna – Compassion Mudita – Joy Uppeka – Equanimity
Thai Yoga Massage is a Sacred Dance. It is a holy communion between two people used to unblock energy stagnation. It is essentially an ancient Eastern healing technique used as a tool to awaken our spiritual flame.
BASED ON INTENSE PRESENCE, THE QUALITY OF SENSUAL TOUCH, DEEPLY CONNECTED
Only a spiritually aware masseur giving from the heart is able to treat different people according to their different needs. Without such higher consciousness, massage becomes mechanical and loses much of its power.
Silvio lives and loves and teaches the Thai Massage and it`s base principles as an effective development tool for receiver and giver and for physical and mental well-being, towards true awakening.
Dynamic Osteopathic Thai Yoga Massage
Rhythm, Continuity, Joy and Happiness
perpetual movement poetry
Dynamic Thai Massage combines the principles of Traditional Thai Massage with rocking, rhythmic and modern osteopathic principles as oscillatory techniques.
Just as nature is characterized by seasons and cycles, each person is a living microcosm of rhythmic patterns such as breathing, heartbeats, peristalsis, cell division and hormonal cycles. The sacred dance of Thai Massage is elaborated upon with a range of movements to create fluidity, continuity and release.
The treatment effectively shifts stagnation in the physical and energetic pathways, including life force energy, circulatory flow, nerve conduction, spinal mobility, and muscular and fascia structures. Often injury and deep holding patterns are healed as the mind and body are lulled into singing a different song.
Dynamic Osteopathic Thai combined with Reflexology and chiropractic techniques is the basis also for Silvio`s Instant Pain Releaf treatments.
