The origins of modern Yogassage are unclear, but rather similar modalities are not uncommon. Think, for instance, of massage therapies such as Thai Yoga Massage, Acu-Yoga or Ayurvedic Yoga Massage.

In any case, the Yogassage therapist will typically combine the practice of Yoga, breathwork, and massage techniques to treat the client.

In Yogassage, the client is positioned in relatively simple Yoga Asanas (Yoga poses), in fact a kind of assisted Yoga poses, while the therapist helps to go deeper by stretching, mobilizing, and massaging the muscles and articulations of the receiver.

Client participation, the types of Yoga poses, and intensity of movement depend significantly on the client’s abilities and comfort level, and sessions are tailored individually.

Health benefits include easing muscle soreness, alleviating muscle and joint pains, supporting correct postural alignment, encouraging injury recovery, increasing blood circulation, stimulating body awareness, and promoting overall well-being and relaxation.
