We work together to create a loving space where you feel supported, received and can release what no longer serves

Origins of Thai massage

Most current literature dates the beginning of Thai massage back to Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, physician to one of the Buddhas. As Thai massage became more popular, it traveled to Thailand and became influenced by traditional Chinese medicine. Monks have shared Thai massage for centuries with each other, elders and the community as a healing modality.

The experience

Incorporating the energies of Ha-Tha, sun and moon, Thai massage is simultaneously energizing and relaxing. The practitioner guides the client through a series of yoga postures on the floor, while palming the body’s sen (energy) lines and accentuating pressure points. Palming, muscle compression, joint integration, shaking, stretching, energy work and guided breath are some of the techniques used. Together, these actions culminate in a comprehensive treatment that creates harmony for the mind, body and heart. This work will relieve muscle tension, improve circulation, lift the immune system and create an over all sense of well-being.

My approach

When you come in, we have a short conversation about what you would like to work on. Our time together is guided by that initial wish you share. Working together is a ceremony. We connect with all of the elements and guides of the seven gates. In doing so, we invite in ancient knowledge and wisdom. This benevolent energy helps to move your wish from intention through transformation and to completion. Sometimes, I play music.
Sometimes its quiet.
Sometimes I sing for a piece or the whole session.
You are always welcome to make a request for any of the above.
Towards the end, we work with essential oils and singing bowls or bells.
The end, is ten minutes of rest in shavasana, legs up the wall or another supported restorative position.
