Traditional Thai Yoga Massage with Francis Schwegman
In February as well as May of this year I got the opportunity to learn about an amazing, powerful, ancient healing technique: Traditional Thai Massage.
I got welcomed, together with a group of other students, in a small Lahu-hilltribe village in the mountains of Northern Thailand. Not only going through a very intense program of learning about Thai massage as well as about yoga and meditation, but also living closely with the incredibly beautiful Lahu-people in the village in a remote, mountainous area in North Thailand, made all of it an incredibly deep, life-changing experience.

With all the lovely sparkly weather everyone feels motivated to spring clean their houses and gardens ... so how about our bodies ? Detoxing comes to mind with the change of seasons, and while medical conditions really need individual care and advice ...we CAN do a lot with a clean up of our diets by having an honest look at what we consume and remove the foods we don’t need e.g. the empty calorie foods such as sugar, baked goods and fried foods, in addition to removing excessive dairy, gluten, alcohol and coffee.
What’s left? ...there’s an array of vegetables, fruit, beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, tofu and eggs...and obviously organic is best if we’re avoiding toxins.
If you eat meat stick to lean grilled foods, and use good oils such as olive oil, and try avocado instead of butter. Drink lots of herb teas and water along with plenty of exercise .
We all love treats but it can get out of balance ...so a little tweaking of our diets can make a big difference. For advice on nice herbal tea blends and detox options, come talk our qualified Naturopaths at Traditional Medicinals.
