What is Thai Yoga Massage?
This dynamic bodywork therapy has its roots in Ayurvedic Medicine & Yoga practices. Originally from India, it traveled to Thailand where it took on its more common form as Thai Massage.
In this unique system of Thai Yoga Massage, also called Nuad Boran, the practitioner guides the client through a series of postures, while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy (‘Sen’) lines and pressure points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically.
What is Zenthai Shiatsu?
Zenthai Shiatsu is movement based therapy & healing. It is being held and moved with focused Intention.
Zenthai is a fusion of 3 traditional and contemporary massage and bodywork techniques: Zen shiatsu, Traditional Chinese medicine principles (acupressure points and meridian lines, acupuncture without needles includes cupping, moxabustion and lifestyle/food advice).
Traditional Thai massage; releases muscular tension and energetic blockages
2) Osteopathic techniques includes joint mobilisation , connective tissue patterns and fascial stretch & unwinding.
Treatment plan is created following initial client assessment. Coco is also trained in trauma informed yoga and bodywork. Dependant on the client, session may include many postures or fewer postures. The work is performed on a mat on the floor; both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing allowing ease of movement and flexibility.

*Again, please wear or bring with you comfortable clothing that allow you to move and stretch.
What do I wear for the treatment?
For all treatments, wear comfortable clothing (as you would for yoga), comfortable, loose or stretchy is best.
Can I speak during the treatment?
Yes absolutely. Every client is different. Overtime you receive a treatment is different. you may find that you have to communicate during one treatment and find yourself very silent in almost asleep in the next. It varies and all communication is welcome.
Can I wear jeans, what if I forget to bring comfortable clothing?
The treatment can still be done but it will be restricted and may reduce its impact and potential in the range of motion department.
Can I work out after?
I recommend tuning into how you feel and making that call for yourself. It is recommended to wait about 24hrs post massage before engaging in weight training or cardiovascular exercise. Should you do it too soon, it may impair the body’s ability to recover from the massage and
3) may increase soreness or inhibit some of the effectiveness of the soft tissue or joint mobility work you received.
Recommendations for post treatment care:
• Drink plenty of water and fluids to help waste removal and recovery.
• Try and remain in relaxing environments and effort to stay mindful of your body and mindstate.
• Keep warm, avoid drafts.
• Notice any pain, discomfort or improvement up to 48 hours post treatment. Please
communicate anything; questions, observations, concerns to me via email.
• Follow post care recommendations and exercises I may assign.
• Take an epsom salt bath to help with toxin removal, tension release and soothes the nervous
• Book another appointment!
