What is Thai Massage?
Thai bodywork is a form of holistic medical massage or manual therapy. There are many different kinds of techniques so each session can look vastly different from another. They can also look very different from one practitioner to another.
What to expect with Six Elements Bodywork:
This is a clinic setting, and I am most interested in supporting healing goals.
Those looking for a full body massage, I challenge you to think deeper: are you in need of some calming of an overtaxed nervous system? Does your skin feel dry or brittle? Do you have multiple issues throughout the body? Are you looking to improve your posture and gait? Do you have poor circulation? If you are interested in looking deeper into your health, this could be a great match. If you're most interested in a general spa type of Swedish massage, this is not what I do but there are some wonderful places nearby who offer exactly that.
I generally work on a floor mat using hands, arms, legs, feet, herbal therapies and tools. The experience can range from gentle and relaxing to vigorous deep tissue. I am patient, detailed and thorough. Treatments focus on relief of symptoms and underlying patterns. To achieve this, I tend to follow what presents itself to me rather than preconceived expectations.

This work has helped people with symptoms from auto accidents, broken bones, sprains and strains, nerve pain, postural imbalances, adrenal fatigue, IBS, PTSD, TMJ disorders, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, scoliosis, headaches, bursitis, joint pain, back pain and more.
Pregnant and postpartum bodies have also experienced much deserved relief and support. However I would advise to not receive massage in the first trimester unless there is a pressing need.
