Body, Yoga and Massage for PTSD
Thai Yoga Therapy (Massage)
Thai Yoga Therapy is a trauma informed massage practice developed to merge the arts of Thai Yoga Massage and Yoga Therapy. Honouring the needs of your body and mind, Thai Yoga Therapy integrates both stillness and movement within yoga postures while you are massaged in a soothing rhythmic fashion. Designed to support shifting your nervous system into its most relaxed state, sessions support you in freeing your breath, releasing tension and establishing ease in your body. Clients are fully clothed in these gentle massage sessions that are offered either on the floor or the massage table.
Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY)
Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an evidence-based adjunct technique for clinical treatment supporting healing from complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). TCTSY has foundations in Trauma Theory, Attachment Theory, Neuroscience, and Hatha Yoga practice with an emphasis on body-based yoga forms and breathing practices.
Trauma Informed Massage Therapy
Trauma Informed Massage Therapy (TIMT) provides a safe container for you to receive the healing benefits of massage. Sessions are client led; your feedback and consent are asked for throughout the massage experience. Your therapist will only massage those areas, where you fully permit, and your wishes will be respected in terms of pressure and technique. In TIMT sessions, clients may be fully clothed, and you will be given the option to receive your massage on the massage table or massage chair. Our priority in these sessions is to support you in experiencing deep relaxation and ease within your body in the safest manner possible.
Most body, yoga and massage services are covered by extended health benefits. Thai Yoga Therapy and Massage Therapy appointments, made with one of our Registered Massage Therapists, are covered by all Healthcare Plans in Alberta.
