Thai Yoga Massage
Jacci’s thai massage is heavenly. I have been to her during emotional breakdowns and other times when my back is in pain. I always leave feeling nourished. She is a gifted healer and has a kind heart and intuitive knowing of the body. Her care is genuine and she goes beyond for her clients.
I can’t be sure when and where I first heard about Jacci Gruninger, but I’ll never forget how I felt after my first Thai massage by Jacci … and every one since then. For more than 10 years, I’ve relied on Jacci’s expertise for lower back pain, clogged ears, neck strain, hip distress, and my overall well-being. There are times that just seeing her is enough to start me on the road to recovery. Cheryle, NM
Thai Yoga Therapy is a special gift I give myself. It’s so much more that any bodywork I have ever received. Stretching, that is so important for the body, is done for you by Jacci. The atmosphere is soothing and relaxing and Jacci takes great care to administer the practice according to what your body needs. She makes a special effort to make sure that you are comfortable. Her pricing is very affordable and she is absolutely hands down the best at what she does.
Since starting Thai Massage with Jacci I have found a massage experience that my body really likes! It limbers the joints and stimulates the muscles so that the body works much better with itself. Especially during the cold winter months when it tends to get seized up. Jacci is a very caring and thoughtful therapist and always checks with me so find out what is going on with my body before beginning her massage. Pat, NM
What is Thai Yoga Massage?
Thai Yoga Massage is a form of bodywork based on Traditional Thai Medicine and influenced by Yoga, Ayurveda and Buddhist practices. It aims to work with the whole body to release stress, increase range of motion and release tension and tightness from the body.
A Thai session includes rhythmic movement, acu-pressure, asanas (Yogic stretching exercises), gentle twisting, energy work and meditation. Thai Yoga Massage stimulates and balances the flow of energy through the body’s Sen channels (energy lines). By opening the areas which are blocked, Thai Yoga Massage brings the person into balance for health and wellbeing.
Health in eastern philosophies is regarded as a state of balance, where all the systems of the body, including mind and spirit, function in harmony. The practice looks at the whole person, not just one part. Health and wholeness includes feeling a sense of aliveness, strength, inner peace and joy.
What to Expect at Your First Session
Thai Bodywork is performed on a soft mat on the floor with the client wearing loose fitting comfortable attire (gym or yoga wear). Clients may be positioned lying on their back, stomach, or side, or in a seated position, depending upon the treatment and what is most comfortable for each client. (Often a variety of positions are utilized within one session.)
