What is this Book about?

Combining and integrating Yoga and Massage Therapy is an ancient practice, perhaps Thai Yoga Massage being the foremost example of a deep integration of these two modalities.

In general, Yoga and massage are blended in a variety of ways: sometimes a massage session is given followed by Yoga exercises, sometimes it’s the other way around, in other cases a session consists of continually alternating between massage and Yoga techniques, or even applying Yoga and massage techniques simultaneously (such as giving acupressure while a receiver has assumed a certain Yoga Asana).

In this in-depth, comprehensive book we look at how and why Yoga Exercises and Massage Therapy are integrated or combined, covering the concepts, techniques, and a broad range of treatment modalities.

This book is not a training course and doesn't contain instructions of techniques, but aims at providing you with a thorough understanding of the topic presented.
