After the death of the Buddha, the earliest Buddhist monks who traveled to Southeast Asia were accompanied by Ayurvedic doctors. These doctors practiced a healing art that would later evolve into traditional Thai massage.
Traditional Thai massage developed over millennia within the environment of Buddhist temples. It flourished as a way for spiritual people to share the benefits of meditation and compassion in a physical form. It is a respected form of healing practiced today in hospitals and temples throughout Thailand.
Thai Yoga Massage is a series of yoga 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. In addition to Ayurveda, Thai massage is very similar to Shiatsu massage and many elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in how it works with the Sen lines (or Meridians in TCM, Nadis in Ayurveda). The Ayurvedic and TCM components utilized are based upon the Panch Maha Bhuta or Five Great Elements. There is nothing in healing or life in general that does not fall within these 5 elements. Thus, being that these elements make up everything in the universe, there is always some elemental wisdom that can be gleaned from virtually any body, mind and/or spirit challenge a client is facing . It could be educational, emotional, inspirational and healing; and often it is all of the above. Many of the benefits found in TYM are also derived from Chinese Acupuncture as well. However, the effects of Acupuncture are often hit or miss. Sometimes it works amazingly well and other times you might not notice any change at all; except for the money that is gone from your wallet. With Bhuta Thai TYM, even if it doesn't heal or "fix" something ailing you, in the worst case scenario, you still get a great massage! And! in the best case scenario, not only does some healing or relief occur but you also have an emotional release, an energy increase, some ideas of what's triggering problems in your life, and some insights on how to not only stop such triggers but also how to grow holistically from such challenges as well.
In Thailand it is said...
Many people go to get a Thai Yoga Massage
before they see their doctor.
Because they may not need their doctor after the massage.
Although our Bhuta Thai (TM) TYM integrates several healing modalities, its foundation comes from the training of
Kam Thai Chow (pictured above) founder of the
Lotus Palm School of TYM.

I had back pain for many months. I saw a chiropractor, and it didn't help. I had several X-Rays and an MRI. I visited with two spine surgeons as well as a general practitioner and nothing helped. I was prescribed medication after medication and still...the pain was there. After one session of Thai Yoga Massage with Will, the pain was relieved so much, I was immediately able to bend forward again! Thanks again! -Brandon
I have received about a dozen Thai Yoga Massages from Will over this last year. It seems that each time I meet with him I find something else that is so therapeutic with this practice. Not only has it addressed all of my physical needs (sore back, shoulders, head etc), it really goes much deeper. I often find out what I am needing in my life (letting go, accepting, relaxing for example) that also helps with the healing process. Without reservation, I highly recommend this practice as well as the Elemental and Meridian work that is all part of the Yoga Clinik. - Julie K

See Below For TYM Prices with Jade
The massage with Will is always at least 90 minutes; but prepared to stay for up to 2 hours; especially if it is your first time.
Part of the reason for the extra time is because it Includes Elemental Consultation.
Your body has many messages for you ~ all of which are come from the
The Panch Maha Bhutas
~ The Five Great Elements ~
Earth - Water - Fire - Air - Space
Will can work with you to decipher what these elements, via your body, is trying to communicate to you.
We usually miss it because it is in a physical and elemental language that takes some training to learn.
Nevertheless, you will recognize the message when you hear it in translation via the massage;
a translation that often leads to profound healing and holistically progressive insights.
