Bhaskar Banerji still remembers where he was when he decided to become a healer. He was sitting down for another one of his Western and Non-Western Medicine classes at the University of Michigan when that day’s lecture on polarity therapy began. The lesson did more than just captivate him—it inspired him. And so, over the course of the next 25 years, he went on to practice energy healing, study shiatsu and Swedish massage at the National Holistic Institute, and travel to Chiang Mai, Thailand, to hone the art of Thai massage at the Sunshine Network. Upon returning to the states, he bolstered his experiences with a master’s in holistic-health education from JFK University.
Today, Banerji teaches Thai massage at the McKinnon Institute, sharing his insights during both beginner and intermediate classes. In class, he shows his students how to rotate joints, stretch muscles, apply pressure, and cut blue wires even when the red ones seem like the obvious choice. And of course, he also offers Thai massages for those who want to simply relax and enjoy the soothing combination of yogic movements and breema modalities.
And, the effect of his gentle style was immediate, and long-lasting. For hours afterward, I felt like I had just gotten out of a really warm bath.irene n., Yelp, 2/25/12
The extra work he did on my injury prone right shoulder has improved my range of motion and reduced the chronic pain that I have felt on the shoulder.Andy W., Yelp, 2/24/13
