Traditional Thai Massage “Nuat Phaen Thai”
is a unique form of Bodywork with origins dating back 2500 years. Thai Massage combines gentle hatha yoga-like stretching with massage of the muscles, tendons, pressure points and energy lines, known as Sen. Thai method uses point pressure, muscle stretching and compression, done in a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking. In Thai massage it is not just the hands that are used to free tension from the recipient’s body, but the therapists feet, forearms, knees, and elbows as well. Thai massage is applied on a mat on the floor, the work is done fully clothed & no body oils need be applied.
Sessions now integrate traditional thai herbal compresses!
The heat from herbs penetrates pores, blood vessels dilate, and the blood flow is stimulated , resulting in a rapid rebuild of the body’s tissue & immune function. The herbs hold heat from the steam to deeply penetrate and relax muscles and tendons . This aids in stretching contacted or shortened muscles to alleviate pain and relax muscles . The healing properties of specific herbs provide added benefit for: sinuses, skin, respiratory , heart & circulation .

“I want to share my appreciation for the skill and application of healing techniques by Ayah Buonaugurio, whose session with touch, compresses of herbs, and salve on my sprained ankle gave me a directly noticeable improvement.” Micheal A.Bedar
” I absolutely recommend Ayah as a yoga teacher and thai yoga masseuse. I’ve been taking yoga classes with her for over a year and a half. As a matter of fact, I followed her from one studio to the next and joined a women’s gym because of her. I love that she gives her students micro-adjustments that help us align to the poses as they were intended. Her unique teaching style keeps things fresh and allows for students to be continually improving while learning new things. Ayah is always studying new techniques and wellness therapies to weave into her classes. She is also a talented Thai yoga massage therapist! I recently had my second session with her and it felt like a spa treatment for my whole body. It was such a treat! Ask for the heated herbal compresses, they are really amazing!” Janice Lum
