About

Co-founder of Two Birds Thai Bodyworks and Two Birds Healing Arts Center, along with partner Peter Bird. We aim to demystify eastern concepts of bodywork, energy work, and natural healing with western students and clientele. Helping people to discover intuitive healing potential through bodywork and self-care while learning how to integrate these practices into their lives is our goal. We are privileged to share and provide intuitive Thai bodywork and massage sessions and instruct hands-on continuing education courses in the Thai healing arts and community classes in self-care. We strive to help our students and clients feel and experience, rather than conceptualize aspects of healing art therapies. Aspects such as the lost art of receiving, the value and power of intention, creating safe spaces for healing, stillness in movement, and to recognize what "letting go", "feeling", and "listening" feels like without thinking, which will deepen their connection to the body.

Self-care is a cornerstone of health and wellness. As providers, we need to be free of the burdens of chronic imbalance to be most effective in what we do. Maintaining a healthy, daily ritual of self-care, for us, is essential and we encourage our students and clients to do the same. Studies with our beloved Ajahn Pichest Boonthumme in Northern Thailand have given us a unique approach to teaching and practicing. We are most grateful for his wisdom and teachings. Our almost effortless style of Thai bodywork is not the most flashy version of Thai massage you'll find, but it is the most therapeutic. Not only will it increase health and vitality for clients, but if done correctly and with the right intention, for the provider as well.
