Please enjoy this RNN’s Profiles in Health and Wellness featured guest Kathy McKeough who has been a Thai Yoga Bodyworker since 2012 and has a practice in Newport, RI. Kathy explains that during a Yoga workshop nine years ago the instructor mentioned Thai Yoga Bodywork and “something clicked inside of me”, she knew she needed to learn more about it. Four years later she began to receive Thai Yoga Bodywork regularly and then decided to take her first training. As Kathy states, “you don’t need to be Hercules to do it.” It’s about using your body weight, mechanics, and leverage in an efficient, effective and safe way. Thai Yoga Bodywork is performed on the floor on a futon type mat with the recipient fully clothed. She reports “It’s a combination of massage, energy work and yoga.” The receiver’s body is stretched, pressed, and manipulated with the intention of bringing healing to their body, mind, and spirit. “The beauty of this art is the receiver doesn’t have to do anything,” The recipient’s job is to let go and relax which according to Kathy requires some reminding at times. One of the intentions of this bodywork can create a deep relaxed meditative state. From Kathy’s perspective, the benefits begin on the physical level by increasing the flexibility of the muscles and joint mobility. The work then begins to dive deeper into the levels of the mind and spirit. The recipient “become open to self-awareness on every level.”
