Two Birds Thai Bodyworks, LLC

About Melanie

Two Birds Thai Bodyworks was founded by Peter Bird and Melanie Eldridge. We are nomadic providers, traveling between the Arizona desert and Minnesota’s north shore of Lake Superior, instructing interactive group and private classes in the Thai healing arts and providing personalized free-style Thai bodywork sessions with an intuitive focus.

Two Birds' aim is to integrate eastern concepts of bodywork and healing with western students and clientele to help unlock their intuitive healing potential through bodywork.

We take a unique approach by explaining and moving beyond cultural interpretations and misunderstandings about Thai and other eastern healing practices. Through years of experience we have learned, a relaxed mental state is essential to truly give or receive a beneficial massage. This state allows the body's natural healing processes to work. We encourage you to play an active part in the process of receiving bodywork. We coach our students and clients in the lost art or receiving and the power of stillness, to recognize these concepts of "letting go" and "listening" and what that may feel like within themselves in order to deepen the understanding of what they mean and how this can benefit quality of life.

As providers, we too need to be freed of the burdens of chronic imbalance in order to be most effective in what we do. It is essential for us to maintain a healthy daily ritual of self-care and encourage our students and clients to do the same.

Studies with our beloved Ajahn Pichest Boonthumme in Northern Thailand have given us this unique approach to teaching and practicing. This almost effortless style of Thai bodywork is the most therapeutic massage you can find today. Not only does it increase health and vitality for clients, but if done correctly, for the provider as well.
