Thai Practitioners & Licensed Massage Therapists

Roy & Brenda

Metta!

We credit our  beginnings and desire of bodywork to the influence of Yoga. As we were pursuing our Yoga certification, one of our instructors introduced us to Thai Massage. He spent just a few minutes stretching and manipulating our legs and hips, it was the best feeling we had ever experienced, and began searching for a teacher to teach us Thai Massage. We finally found one at the Thai Institute of Healing Arts, and took all of their classes, then took a cultural trip to Thailand to meet with other teachers. Some of which, we are still studying with today.

Thai Massage which is part of Thai Medicine and Buddhist philosophy, is a practice that is literally centuries old, and can be dated back as early as the existence of Yoga. Since 2004, practicing this system and style has become our life and journey. 

We decided to become Certified Massage Therapist, so we continued our training at the NMTI to learn Western Massage. The use of oils, lotions, which is not normally used in Thai Massage, was a addition to our arsenal  of massage tools. 

We have continued our studies, learning about Herbal Remedies, including how to makie and use them.  Our studies included preparing Herbal Bundles, Compresses, Poultices, Linaments, and Teas. Our clients have already seen and felt the benefits of using Herbal Remedies. 

People often ask us what do we do that is so different. We tell them we work the channels and create space.  We work intuitively, each massage is different, we listen to your body and ours for guidance on how to work on your body.   Sometimes your will need all over work, or a specific area worked.  It might need deep tissue work or trigger point work, but other times it needs to just let go and relax.

Well, we started with Metta and this is where we will end with Metta, which means Loving Kindness. The idea is, that as a Thai Practitioner or Bodyworker, the basis of massage should always be out of Loving Kindness. Metta, is deeply intertwined in Thai culture. Borrowing a page out of their book and adopt it in my massages. 'Nurture your clients and Respect your teachers.'

She starts slow, warms the tissue up good first to prevent extreme bruising of the tissue, as well to relax the body so it allows her to better access the deeper tissue.
 
Jessica likes to keep an open communication with her clients, this helps her to modify her pressure and tissue manipulation. She listens to what the body is telling her, and try to get to the root of the problem instead of just treating the symptoms.
