Altai Massage

Altai Massage in Rye

With its roots in the shamanic healing traditions of the Altai mountain region in Siberia, Altai Massage is a system of bodywork that uses rhythmic, deep massage techniques to help release tension, stress and blockages throughout the body. By releasing these obstructions, we can encourage the cleansing of both the skeletal and musculature areas of the body.

Though relatively unknown in the Western world, Altai Massage shares much of its philosophy with that of Chinese Medicine and the healing disciplines of Tai Chi and Yoga. The massage itself is very rhythmic and meditative, enabling the practitioner to induce a state of physical and spiritual relaxation that ultimately encourages the body to start healing itself.
