Thai bodywork is a branch of traditional medicine in Thailand. This therapeutic system is used to help you find balance within. This balanced state awakens your own natural healing processes and increases overall vitality. Thai bodywork utilizes a seamless blend of acupressure, compression, joint mobilization, stretching, and holding techniques that encourage relaxation and realignment, increase range of motion and flexibility, clear energetic blockages, as well as stimulate and nourish energy pathways. This therapy encourages a discovery of body/mind awareness on a physical and energetic level for both the giver and the receiver. All techniques will be practiced in the traditional style, fully clothed, on a mat on the floor. SIGN UP TODAY!!!
