Thai Yoga Bodywork

An ancient healing art rooted in loving-kindness and compassion

for all sentient beings.

“Thai massage with Shea was an experience above any other massage or relaxation session I have ever had. Deeply relaxing and enjoyable. Knots are gone. I feel more myself afterwards.”

Wonderful experience with Shea! She was super responsive to my appointment request and was able to see me that same day to help me be relieved from back pain. The studio was pretty and clean. The massage was wonderful and extremely effective. Shea was kind, knowledgeable, and supportive.
