I am so busy with life and work that I've unfortunately neglected this blog! The exciting news is that I'll be offering the new modality Ashi-Thai classes in October.
Ashi-Thai is like traditional Thai massage in that the client is fully clothed with loose, comfortable clothing and that no oils or creams are used. The therapist works with the client's breath to move him into various positions. This helps increase the energetic flow through the body as well as relax the body and loosen muscles.
It differs in that the therapist works on the massage table (so that the client's head doesn't have to be turned to the side), and he or she uses feet and leg strength. The overhead Ashiatsu bars are used for balance.
I just finished my instructor training with the founder. It feels great during as well as after receiving the work!
