gentle Thai Massage

Thai Massage is a combination of stretches, compression massage, joint mobilization, reflexology and more, using hands, forearms, knees and feet. You will always remain clothed, this is tradition with Thai massage. My style is always gentle and intuitive. We will be on a thick Thai massage mat on the floor. Benefits include increased flexibility, improved posture, reduction of pain and stress, improved sleep and more.

Thai Massage
+ Yoga

A combination session where we can include some time for guided yoga and/or meditation. Always gentle. 

Practicing the physical postures of yoga can improve flow of energy throughout your body, bringing a multitude of benefits for your mind, body and spirit.

What to expect with a trauma sensitive massage

This specialized massage prioritizes your comfort and well-being. Your first session will begin with a thorough assessment, then we will create a personalized plan that meets your unique needs. Communication throughout the session will remain open, as I inform you of techniques coming next and check in with how things are feeling. You will always remain clothed, this is the tradition of Thai massage. Light to medium pressure is utilized with this style of bodywork, I take a slow and gentle approach. (Deep pressure or "deep tissue" style is not available.)

 

Based on the theory of somatics, therapeutic safe touch offers support in releasing pain that the physical body may be storing due to past trauma.

What are Nature Based remedies?

This is an effective form of therapy that integrates nature and the outdoors into the healing process. By engaging in activities such as walking/hiking, tree-assisted yoga, beauty & wildlife observations and connections, visual meditation (and more!) we can experience reduced stress and anxiety, improved mood, lower blood pressure, immune system boosted, better sleep, amplified creativity and increased physical activity. Additionally, nature-based therapy fosters a deeper appreciation for the environment and can help us connect with nature on a more profound level.

We will have the option to meet in a natural setting, like a local park, to incorporate this very special support from the earth. If weather or other conditions are not suitable, we can bring a bit of nature indoors to our session.

about Misty

I am a licensed massage therapist based in Dallas, TX. Thai massage is what I began learning and has been my focus since 2012. I soon realized that there was a need for a gentle and trauma sensitive approach to massage therapy. I received one-on-one training from a counselor in an office that I worked part time for a couple of years. I also stay in connection with other counselors as well as continued education through a variety of sources.

 The feeling of safety is a fundamental human need, and it is my honor to offer my support to you through this work.

I have been a yoga practitioner since 2012 as well, and have attended many workshops over the years, including a 200 hr training in 2018 and Yoga Nidra meditation course in 2020.
