Nigel Hanlon

Nigel Hanlon has been practising Thai Yoga massage for 7 years since 2017 and has studied Osteopathy and is combining Osteopathic techniques with Thai massage.

The origins of Thai massage come from Indian and Buddhist traditions, including Ayurveda and yoga science of the mind and body connection. Meanwhile, it received its name as Thai massage, or Nuad Boran in Thailand, because it is in Thailand where the practice has mainly been preserved.

As per tradition massages are done fully clothed and on a mat on the ground. Nigel works through static and dynamic movements with a focus on working energy lines from the feet to the head. It includes a combination of compression and acupressure and “rocking” or dynamic movement to release areas of stagnation and free the flow of energy in the body. There are many physical benefits, along with bringing renewed mental, emotional and energetic balance.
