First of all, it reduces stress, pain and muscle tension. It
increases blood flow, which in turn facilitates improved concentration, better
sleep, and healing from injuries. Many
people also find that massage gives them relief from a wide range of
difficulties including headaches, anxiety, fibromyalgia, stiff joints, lack of
energy, and dependency on medications, scarring, and depression. As the body relaxes, many physiological
processes have the opportunity to function more optimally, especially
digestion, breathing, and circulation.
During a massage, we experience safe and respectful touch. We often feel
cared for, comforted and empowered. Because our muscles tend to hold on to stress,
massage can give us a chance to relax and let the pain go.
Thai Yoga Massage is a type of massage that has been
practiced in Thailand for over 2000 years.
The client remains fully clothed in comfortable, loose-fitting
attire. The massage is performed on a
mat on the floor, and is a combination of compression and stretching. The massage therapist both presses muscles
and acupressure points, and guides the client through gentle, passive stretches,
always within the client’s comfort zone. The therapist may use their hands,
feet, elbows, knees and legs to facilitate the movements, and rarely uses
oil. The benefits of Thai Yoga Massage
include deep relaxation, quieting the mind, improved body-mind connection,
improved circulation, increased flexibility, greater range of motion, and
relief from pain and muscle tension.
Meditation and Yoga to help treat Addiction

ultimate goal is the cultivation of independent happiness: happiness which is
not dependent on any external cause or circumstance. This is lasting happiness
in an impermanent world.

“Despite having been
raised in a household of meditators, I sought to create happiness by
controlling the external world, chasing pleasure and achievement to avoid the
pain of the inherent emptiness of the human condition.”
Linda began her own formal
meditation practice 4 years ago, and is grounded in the technique of Vipassana,
as taught in the tradition of S.N. Goenka. This particular technique aims to
cultivate an equanimous and non-reactionary mind, for the purpose of
self-enquiry, self-awareness and self-transformation. To be liberated from
one's own habit patterns of the mind is the ultimate freedom.
Yoga is also another
powerful vehicle for healing. Linda became certified to teach yoga in 2012,
completing Radiantly Alive's multi-style vinyasa training. After training with
Nikki Myers in January 2013, specialising in yoga for addiction recovery and
relapse prevention, Linda teaches a fusion of hatha, yin and restorative yoga for the
purpose of releasing tension and trauma, and strengthening the neuro-fascial
