Thai traditional massage feels like stretching is included in the compression, but "W Yoga Freestyle" is the opposite. It feels like compression is included while the whole is composed of stretch. When I say pressure, I mean pressure like energy work represented by Reiki healing, where the therapist meditates and aligns his/her consciousness with the client and sends energy through it. Simply put, it's super acrobatic stretching while doing Reiki. Therefore, it is an advanced technique for experienced Thai massage and healing work.
Double yoga is also based on traditional medicine theory. It is based on many classical medical theories such as Thai traditional medicine, Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, etc., so it is not just a matter of moving freely. While touching the body, check for areas that are cold, areas that are loose and warm, lines where energy is stagnant, etc., as you proceed.
Traditional Thai massages such as "Bangkok style" and "Chiang Mai style" have a set procedure for the general public, so you should remember that, but in double yoga, body counseling is always provided. There is a difference that we proceed while doing.
W Yoga Freestyle is a style created by Soichiro Watanabe, chairman of TTMA. It looks like nothing more than an acrobatic stretching technique, but it is a combination of traditional medicine theory and energy work. Therefore, it is important for the therapist himself to be in a dynamic meditative state, and by connecting each other's energies, the therapist's consciousness becomes the client's consciousness, and the body begins to move on its own. sometimes.
Traditional Thai massage also involves stretching, so it is also called “yoga for two”, but it refers to the type of stretching. Originally, both the client and the therapist are in a relaxed meditative state with abdominal breathing, which can greatly affect the physical and mental state of both parties, but Bangkok style, Chiang Mai style, government style Unfortunately, I didn't mention the breathing method around here. In W (double) yoga massage, the therapist must be fully aware of his/her own stretching, breathing, and meditative state.
There is no set formula for the W Yoga Freestyle. Unlike general Thai massage, it often starts from a prone or sideways position. It is an artistic healing method that allows you to freely move and connect with the sensibility of the therapist. In the way of thinking in Oriental medicine, we emphasize not only the circulation of blood and bodily fluids, but also invisible life energy, called "Ki, Blood, and Water (Tsui)". that can be effective in It is important to connect the therapist and client's prana (chi) by checking the client's physical condition, observing the physical condition in detail, and providing counseling. It's like we're in sync or it's just right.
The therapist uses every part of the body to perform creative treatments. In addition to thumb pressure and palm pressure, elbows, knees, and feet are used to apply pressure, as well as hips and head. Strong compression is also possible, so muscle stiffness can be effectively relieved. Since the legs are treated first and the autonomic nerves are stimulated over time, there is almost no worry about back pain. In order to relieve stress, it is a very effective treatment method that not only shakes, rubs, and presses while rotating with the thumb, but also adds movements such as drawing lines with fingers, pulling movements, and twisting movements. increase. It also shakes and vibrates. It also takes a deformed posture. Many new stretching techniques that were not found in the traditional Thai formula are also added. While the therapist judges the client's chief complaint and physical condition, we have to approach it by grasping the muscles as delicately as possible. It involves many complex stretching techniques and, depending on the situation, must be performed on the edge of danger. There are also dangerous ones that could injure the client if they fail. Hopefully, it can provide a refreshing feeling in about half the time of a commonly known Thai massage.
In "W Yoga Freestyle", the therapist himself performs the treatment in a meditative state with abdominal breathing, while feeling the client's breathing, pulse, and body temperature. We aim to move sensibly and freely by always relaxing and doing abdominal breathing, meditating, and connecting the client's consciousness. As energy circulates between the client and the therapist, the therapist's body begins to move on its own. It is possible to perform a treatment with the feeling that the so-called god has descended, in which the body starts to move on its own before thinking with the head.
"W Yoga Freestyle" is a technique that is performed for the purpose of treatment only. The theory is also conscious of not only the energy line called "Sen" in traditional Thai medicine, but also the "Twelve meridians" and "Eight irregular meridians" in Chinese medicine. This is an advanced level technique based on an understanding of various theories in traditional medicine such as Ayurvedic theory and chakras. Energy is adjusted at the same time by using Reiki healing and prana healing. So it's not just a mishmash of acrobatic stretching.
