I was introduced to Thai Massage when I visited the country of Thailand for the first time in 2010, but it wasn't until a few years later that I learned to give Thai Massage during my Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand. It was by far the most healing and effective form of massage I'd ever received, and I was determined to learn as much as possible in order to increase my offerings. It was during a trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand, that I found and became a devoted student of Ajarn Pichest, an internationally recognized Master who developed his own therapeutic approach.
Traditional Thai Massage is different from Western massage in that it is performed on a mat on the floor and the receiver remains clothed, since no lotion or oil is used. I use my body as a tool to massage the receiver's body, focusing on broad trigger point therapy work to release tension and increase mobility, along with some assisted stretches and rhythmic movements to reduce stress and evoke deep relaxation.
If you are interested in receiving a treatment from me, I am currently working out of Loreto, Baja, and you may always contact me here to know when I might be visiting your area during a Thai Massage tour.
