I recently read the article Shama posted regarding partner yoga and Thai Massage. And i prefere thai massage.  First probably because I am the actual Lisenced massage therapist. I see results daily. I am really able to take techniques and use them throughout my body work sessions and my floor thai massage sessions and get amazing results. But one thing I do is work on my family. My children like the modality due to the softness and energy it provides. My husband likes it because the work is softer and there is no lotion involved.  I like the way Shama teaches. He's very meticuless and detailed and slow in how he gves his techniques but he puts all loving intention and kindness into his work.   Ive learned clients can tell if you have the right intention and if you show you know what your doing.

Thanks for the kudos. Personally I also prefer Thai Massage over partner yoga. There is just something about lying there and being taken into this blissful trance zone when you experience a good Thai Massage. (Of course if someone does a mechanical, purely sequential muscling job with Thai Massage, then it is no fun at all to experience)

Partner yoga is an effort and it takes two skilled people. Thai Massage is effortless for the receiver and is wonderfully relaxing. That's not the result you get from partner yoga. This serves a different purpose. That's just my preference. I know there are people who are totally into partner yoga, and that's fine of course. The thing is that Thai Massage is a lot more than a version of partner yoga. The stretches are just one aspect.
