More About Thai Massage. 
Thai massage is a practice that has been around for over 2500 years. It is an integration of assisted stretching, acupressure, and deep tissue massage. The intention of Thai massage is to clear energetic blockages, relieve muscle tension, and leave you with a sense of balance and restoration. Learn to touch with purpose and intention, uncover deep unconscious patterns of stress, and work through the meridian system to remove blockages for the optimal flow of prana.

Work Trade Is Real.It takes a village to build and maintain this community, and we are always looking for reliable talent and studio support. If you can be relied upon to be here on a regular schedule for one or more classes each week, let’s talk about trade for those classes! Typical responsibilities include studio setup prior to class (and equipment room check afterward), light clerical work (check students in, accept/track payments before/after class), and social media / marketing / newsletter support (work with the website team).

If you are interested, email (subject line “Work Trade”)
