--- The Massage helps with low energy in the body, sore shoulders back or neck, stiff joints, lower back pain, muscles pain, nerves disorder and much more. First there will be a short interview with the client; finding out in depth the different body-mind-spirit issues which are happening for the individual. The session includes a physical check with special attention on body posture and spine alignment. Then the therapist will move to Thai style bodywork. Using thumbs, palms and elbow presses (and sometimes even feet and knees). He helps the receiver to relax tight muscles to release stiff joints and to free the life energy of the body. In addition Gyan will preform, based on the individual case, different Yoga-like stretches which support the opening and healing process.

"I just got my first Thai Yoga Massage with Gyan and it was amazing! A spiritual experience that combined meditation and an authentic, invigorating body work...feeling great, feeling free." Johanna


Gyan taught Thai Yoga Massage and gave sessions in his home country Israel and in Taiwan where he lived for few years and studied Mandarin Chinese. At present he lives in Chiang Mai, Thailand. A wonderful place for a Thai Massage lover… For him, Thai Yoga Massage  is a spiritual discipline, a way to express and share love and light. "Giving a session is a meditation of breath awareness and a chance of opening my heart in compassion, thus bringing the treatment to a deep level of spiritual communion and healing."
