ॐ MERRY MARY (Thai Yoga Massage) 
Sacred touch is something that has been a profound source of healing throughout the millennia. Simply being present and focused on the other person can bring waves of relaxation and release. The physical body has the capacity to hold an incredible amount of tension, even unconsciously. One thing this ancient massage offers is an increased awareness of energy lines that have been mapped out throughout the body with the use of hands and feet. Passive stretching, and breath work are two more ways to access this energetic body work that can feel like a very deep massage. Thai massage is a mutually beneficial, shared dance. Join Merry Mary as she guides you through the sacred science of Thai Yoga Massage and enjoy connecting with another friend-along-the-path using healing touch.
