Traditional Thai Bodywork since 2010
Thai bodywork is an ancient healing art that incorporates acupressure, yoga, and deep tissue elements. It has been used for centuries by Thai Royalty and everyday farmers to relieve stress, aid energy flows, and promote relaxation. Today, Thai bodywork is becoming popular around the world for its deep stretching and yogic approach to improving your body and spirit. There are five key elements of Thai bodywork that promote complete healing of the mind, body, and spirit: meditation, yoga, reflexology, acupressure, and stretching.
Beyond relieving pain and muscle tension, Thai bodywork facilitates relaxation, clears your energy flow, stimulates the nervous system, increases flexibility, improves blood circulation, and rejuvenates your body. Clients are fully clothed and lay on a wide, thin mattress that allows the practitioner to move freely. Using thumbs, feet, palms, forearms, elbows, and knees, the bodywork practitioner applies pressure and assists in yoga stretches to stimulate energy flow and movement. Techniques include rhythmic muscle compression, assisted yoga positions, and targeted pressure along energy lines (“sen”). Benefits from Thai bodywork last long after the massage.
"Health is the greatest gift,
contentment the greatest wealth,
faithfulness the best relationship."
Originally from Thailand, I have more than 600 hours of training in Thai Massage, including intensive training at Wat Po Traditional Thai Medicine School, located in Bangkok, Thailand. I have been practicing massage in the US since 2010. I am a Registered Thai Therapist (RTT) at the Advanced Practitioner level. This certification recognizes my extensive training and practice in Thai Massage. I am also a Member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.
Traditional Thai Yoga Massage
Balance Your Energy
This treatment provides you with all of the classic elements of Thai massage: reflexology, deep tissue, and assisted yoga. Using my hands, thumbs, arms, legs, and feet, I work with your body to relieve pressure and tension and align your sen (energy and nerve lines). Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is a very intensive, yet relaxing, form of bodywork.
Thai Herbal Massage
Invigorate Your Energy Flows
Thai Herbal Massage is a form of traditional Thai massage that uses Luuk Prakob (herbal compresses) which are steamed and kneaded into your muscles to provide therapeutic heat as well as aromatherapy to deepen relaxation. The herbal compresses are sourced from my home province in Thailand and brought specially for my clients. They are purchased directly from the family that hand makes each individual compress and have been awarded one of the highest ratings as an OTOP product by the Royal Thai government.
Samak gave me a very gentle, yet thorough and comfortable massage which eased my chronic back pain. Afterwards, I felt very relaxed and my pain was greatly diminished.
