Thai Yoga Massage
Eric Spivack specializes in Traditional Thai Yoga Massage, acupressure, and injury treatment. Many of these techniques may be combined during your session. Your initial visit lasts 90 minutes and includes a full health history intake, as well as, a treatment. Subsequent sessions may be scheduled for 1-3 hours in length.
Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is a holistic, meditative, and interactive style of bodywork. Sometimes referred to as 'assisted yoga', Thai Yoga Massage incorporates elements of yoga, stretching, breathing, acupressure, and rhythmic compression along energy lines. It is deeply relaxing and grounding, yet also energizing and balancing.
The bodywork I teach and practice is done on a comfortable heated futon and without the need for oils and lotions. Because I integrate movement and stretching into my sessions, please wear or bring loose, comfortable clothing such as a cotton shirt and shorts, or a sweatshirt with sweatpants.

Massage & Acupuncture ~ A synergistic effect is created when receiving acupuncture followed by Thai Yoga Massage. Acupuncture opens the body's energy meridians and allows a person to be more receptive to bodywork. Clinically, I find that my patients respond better to a combination treatment.
