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:

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.

New mamas and mamas to be have also experienced much deserved relief. However I would advise to not receive massage in the first trimester unless there is a pressing need. 

Visceral and gut health is a prime focus in Thai medicine and a growing passion for me as well. This includes digestive health, respiratory health, women's reproductive health and overall vitality. The abdomen is an important place because restrictions here could potentially affect the entire body.
