I began yoga casually in my 20’s taking regular classes to manage stress, depletion and for a lack of better words, “to feel good.” The noticeable benefits spurred a regular practice and eventually to both 200 and 500 hour teaching certifications, studying under many teachers and styles throughout the years.
After flirting with the idea of studying Thai massage for a few years, I finally dove in and went to Thailand to study for 2 months in the winter of 2017. The first month was at Loi Kroh, a small school working one-on-one with a different teacher each week 9a-4p everyday. After this amazing private training, I hopped into class and began studying with Pichest Boonthumme, the venerable and well known master outside Chiang Mai who teaches at his home every day. I returned to Pichest in 2018 to continue studies with him and i hope to return often to soak up his knowledge. In Chicago I’ve taken workshops and class with Felicity Joy (Thai abdominal massage), Christopher Ray, Takashi Yoshizawa, and Paul Fowler.
Much like yoga, I see it as a limitless path to study and practice for years to come. I am grateful to be able to share this work with you.
My approach to massaging you is slow and considerate and to listen to your body. I enjoy helping people when they are stressed and in need of a personal reset. I am grateful to be able to share this work with you.
