What does Thai BodyWork or Assisted Yoga feel like?

Thai BodyWork is more energizing and rigorous than classic forms of massage.

Thai BodyWork is also called Thai yoga or Assisted Yoga, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai BodyWork is like doing yoga without any work.

Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment.

People describe Thai BodyWork as both relaxing and energizing. Thai BodyWork has its roots in a spiritual tradition, and its purpose is to heal a person physically, emotionally and spiritually.

What should I expect during my visit?

Thai BodyWork is done on a padded mat on the floor.

No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed. You are usually asked to bring or wear comfortable clothing (yoga or workout clothes) for the session.

A typical Thai BodyWork is 50 minutes to 80 minutes long.

What conditions is Thai BodyWork used for?

Many people find that Thai BodyWork has the following benefits:

  • relaxes
  • reduces stress
  • improves circulation
  • increases energy
  • increases flexibility
  • improves range of motion
  • centers the mind and body


 BodyWork is not recommended for certain people:

  • infectious skin disease, rash, or open wounds
  • immediately after surgery

  • prone to blood clots. There is a risk of blood clots being dislodged. If you have heart disease, check with your doctor before having a BodyWork

Additional tips 

  • Don’t eat a heavy meal before the BodyWork
  • If it’s your first time at the clinic or spa, arrive at least 10 minutes early to complete the necessary forms. Otherwise, arrive 5 minutes early so you can have a few minutes to rest and relax before starting the BodyWork.
  • Be sure that your BodyWork therapist has your complete health history, because people with certain conditions should not have Thai BodyWork.
  • If you feel discomfort at any time, let your BodyWork therapist know.
