Welcome to yoga-meets-massage.

 

Thai massage developed as a type of yoga bodywork. It is an extraordinary, dynamic type of bodywork that combines easily with more familiar Western modalities like Deep Tissue or contract-relax therapies (like PNF, ART, AIS, MET, etc). I specialize in therapeutic & Medical massage, but you are in charge of your session. If you are just looking for something more gentle and luxurious, that's great too.  

Thai Yoga Massage

A floor mat allows full range of movement. Postures and stretches open up the body and move energy through. It is a chance to blend breath work and other yoga techniques into specialized body care. Rocking and rhythmic movement lull the body into relaxation, allowing bodywork to sink in more deeply.

Reiki

Reiki is a type of energy healing from Japan. A warm, soothing heat flows from the hands of the practitioner, promoting relaxation and stress relief, which leads to a greater boost of vitality. It is very delightful to receive and often induces sleep.

Yoga

Yoga can mean many things. During an individual session of bodywork, we can include things like breathwork, singing bowls, partnered stretches, and even postures or mindfulness practices you can do at home to help further the work we do during our time together. If you are attracted to the philosophies of yoga and Buddhism and how they might help your life, let me know, and we can incorporate them as part of our conversation during treatment.

Yoga classes coming. Stay tuned!

"Thai bodywork is a dance.
The approach is to allow
and be invited into another’s
energetic  space."

Rather than pushing and forcing, my approach is to listen and draw out the bodymind's inner apothecary. I would like to invite you and your body to become a partner in healing. Through the mindfulness of yoga and Thai massage, your body guides how a session weaves together leading research, traditional practices and modern techniques.

"Pushing into hard muscle is not the key to letting change in. By pushing, a person forces their qi or energy onto someone else, and they will resist by bracing their muscles."                             

- Eric Spivack, Soaring Crane Massage

VISION

Changing the Way the World Sees Itself

You deserve to dream, and your dreams should be allowed to flourish. You can find healing through transformative body and mind work. 

I invite you to experience your whole self and find balance on all 3 levels:

Body

GROUNDED BEING
Medical Thai Massage

              Traditional and modern

       bodywork, guided by leading

research

Mind

ENABLED PERCEPTION

Yoga and Buddhist

   perspectives for

    mental health

Energy

reiki energy work hands on head and heart
BOOSTED VITALITY

   Energy work through reiki, yoga and     

Thai massage

When you are given room to just

be, the somatic intelligence

of the body emerges and

      amazing things happen.

Together, we take a moment to

honor that deeper intelligence.

Treatment

Changing the Way the World Treats Itself

Self-care doesn't have to be a path you walk alone. It is more delightful if you have a wellbeing team that can look at your bodymind as a whole in order to help create the life you dream.

Daydream weaves healing arts from around the world into holistic sessions made just for you. You can expect care for body, mind and spirit based in Thai massage, American bodywork, yoga and reiki.

 

My goal is to unite the technical sciences of bodywork with a kinder, more gracious artwork of healing. This is the foundation of what I do—listening, dancing, allowing a person to open up into a more spacious way of being.

Massage

I've been doing massage for years. Usually I feel better for a day or two, and then the same symptoms come back. This time, it's been a week, and the symptoms have not returned! I finally feel hope that I can get past this pain.

Hi, I'm Travis

MA, LMT, THAI Certification, Yoga teacher (RYT-200), Reiki Teacher, Daydreamer

Just as Covid lockdowns started, I decided, "Why yes, this is the perfect time to get into manual therapy. I will go to massage school and learn Thai massage at the same time."

2 years later, and I am just getting my business up and going. Please have patience, and check back often! 

In the meantime, what would you like to know? Please email or text me with questions.

As a dream, a cloud, a drop of dew,

As a bubble, flash of lightning, a star in space--

so are all things composed,

so see them.
