Traditional Thai-Yoga massage Nuad Bo Rarn
Naad Bo Rarn: also know as the Northern variation of traditional Thai massage is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures. The practice is essentially a form of assisted yoga performed by the giver, with the receiver completely passive throughout.
Traditional Thai Massage Wat Po
Also known as the Southern variation of traditional Thai massage, focuses primarily on acupressure and energy lines. It also employs a much stronger pressure then Nuad Bo Rarn and there are no assisted yoga stretches.
This massage uses both the techniques of Naud Bo Rarn and Wat Pho but focuses on specific problems such as frozen shoulder, numbness of legs, back pain, etc. In comparison to a holistic massage, it gives more attention to the specific symptoms that need to be treated.
