Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient Eastern bodywork technique combining the principles of Yoga, Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine and Buddhism. Each session involves applied Hatha Yoga stretches, joint manipulation, accupressure, which are performed with a meditative approach.
The main aim of Thai Yoga Massage is to improve and re-balance the flow of energy within your energy channels (sen). This benefits body and mind alike.
What are the benefits of Thai Yoga Massage?
Thai Yoga Massage releases both physical and mental tension and depending on your needs, can be either relaxing or energising. It keeps all body systems healthy, and used therapeutically, can relieve backache, neck and shoulder pain, knee pain and headache, to name just a few.
A Thai Yoga Massage treatment is tailored to suit your individual needs, therefore everybody receives maximum benefit, regardless of size, age or level of fitness and flexibility. For those who do yoga, it is a great way to enhance and deepen their practice.
What does a Thai Yoga Therapy session involve?
Thai Yoga Massage is performed on a special futon spread on the floor. The client remains dressed during the treatment. As it is a truly holistic practice where the entire body is worked on, the minimum duration is 90 minutes.
While you're lying or sitting on the futon, the therapist uses thumbs, palms, feet and elbows in a variety of techniques. During the treatment, the therapist remains totally present, tuned into the energy of the client.

Weronika studied Thai Yoga Massage under the guidance of Ralf Marzen and Kira Balaskas, direct disciples of the late Asokananda, (a pioneer of Thai Yoga Massage in the West). She qualified as a Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner with Mudita School of Thai Yoga Massage (registered with Complementary Medical Association and Thai Healing Alliance) in 2013. She also holds an ITEC Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology for Complementary Therapies.
"Weronika’s persona makes you feel at ease from the moment you meet her. Her meditative focus remained throughout the massage as she adapted the treatment specifically for me. Being a yogi, I enjoyed the deep stretches which make up part of the massage. Whether you practice yoga or not, I challenge anyone not to like these stretches as they open and re-engage areas of the body you forgot existed. I would recommend a Thai Yoga Massage with Weronika to anyone looking for an energising and rebalancing massage which concentrates on not just the physical, but the mental and spiritual alignment of the whole body.'"

Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga.
Yoga Therapy is different from a one-2-one Yoga session or general Yoga class. It involves a tailored practice for an individual with a particular health challenge. Traditionally, Yoga is concerned with a "normal" or healthy individual's personal transformation.
What are the benefits of Yoga Therapy?
The range of health challenges which could be helped with Yoga Therapy is broad. It includes chronic fatigue (ME) and chronic pain (fibromyalgia), depression/anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive conditions, migraines/headaches, back and shoulder pain, cardio-vascular and respiratory conditions, emotional issues, injuries and many more.The wonderful thing about this type of therapy is that it's complementary and can be used in conjunction with any conventional treatment.
What does a Yoga Therapy session involve?
Yoga Therapy is not a hands on therapy, although there may be some hands on work. It is also not a talking therapy, although there is plenty of talking involved.
Kieran will discuss your health challenge with you, will assess your physical condition - which may involve some hands on - and will agree a home practice with you. He'll recommend that you do a daily home practice between sessions, which are usually weekly or fortnightly. At subsequent sessions he'll review, refine, maintain or change your practice according to your needs.

"I was extremely fortunate to be able take part in therapy sessions with Kieran. I found that I was suffering from restricted breathing following a viral infection. I was prescribed asthmatic inhalers, however I had a strong resistance to medication and wanted to return to my previous level of fitness. The therapy sessions with Kieran concentrated on my breathing and helped to strengthen my diaphragm. By practising the exercises Kieran recommended I have noticed a marked improvement in my breathing particularly when exercising and hill climbing. So marked has been my improvement that I am now due to run the London marathon.I am extremely grateful to Kieran. He is an inspiring teacher and therapist and his work has resulted in a long term benefit and has enabled me to avoid medication."
