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.

A tan can accomplish a lot for the skin: it can add a golden luster, highlight muscle tone, and even hide imperfections. The one thing it shouldn?t do, however, is damage skin. Experts such as Kim at Spray Tan California assist clients in protecting their skin and making it look the way they want it to look. Kim is an expert in sunless sprays, so she can custom apply two layers of safe, hypoallergenic, oil-free DHA sprays to skin to bring out a glowing color that stays for up to seven days. She can apply the color in just 15 minutes at her studio or remotely at a place of her client?s choosing?just not at the National Archives in front of the perfectly tan Declaration of Independence. With this process, she ensures that tan lines disappear in time for special occasions.
