Thai Massage Therapist, Reiki Master and Integrative Nutrition Consultant
Marisa started her journey at the Tyler School of Art to become a printmaker, studied classical ballet and then came to yoga and Thai bodywork after scoliosis and chifosis in her thoracic spine made it necessary for her to find a form of physical therapy beyond dance. Discovering the various styles of yoga was a personal pursuit then and now, opting for fusion of systems over just one.
It wasn't until 15 years into her yoga journey, and starting to teach and share her love of yoga that she found her love of Thai Bodywork in an advanced training. She experienced the radical healing effect it has on both spirit and physical body. She continued her path to focus on healing with Thai medicine beginning with the teachings of Gwyn Williams, Zen Thai Shiatsu, and continuing to full certification under Sebastian Bruno of Thai Vedic and Mukti Michael Buck at the Vedic Conservatory.
Thai medicine uses not only the modality of physical manipulation but it is based in Ayurvedic medicine, and 5 element therapy with Buddhism at its spiritual heart. Marisa rounded out her knowledge of healing the mind and body with a certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to bring her artistic nature to holistic food, creating an experience for her clients that is truly holistic.
We all suffer trauma in our lives, from an energetic perspective this trauma is held within our physical bodies until the body can no longer support the stress of holding onto it and then it manifests in physical disease, or chronic pain, anxiety, weight gain and many other potential physical issues.
The discipline to pay attention to what we digest both physically and emotionally therefore is our best prevention, when life serves up things difficult to digest, noticing how this is stored in the body and mind is the first step to then being able to work through it.</span>
