Nava Massage And Healing Arts culls massage techniques from locales such as Europe, India, Scandinavia, Asia, and Thailand. The skilled team of therapists tailors these modalities to each individual client, using Swedish when guests want to relax or Thai yoga massage when clients need to have muscles stretched and stimulated at deeper levels. It's this blend of Eastern and Western bodywork traditions that distinguishes the business, like an auto shop that replaces old Ford truck antennas with bamboo stalks.
Sujinda Wetterer, registered massage therapist and Thai massage specialist at Sa baai Thai Massage, combines her experiences with Thai and Western massage to offer individualized treatments. She and a team of registered massage therapists offer traditional Thai massage, Thai foot massage, and Thai aroma massage as they stretch and manipulate muscles and joints across the body. These motions can help improve blood circulation, boost flexibility, and relieve muscle tension and stiffness.
The staff at Metta Wellness Center believes that, in order to fully heal their patients, they must heal them as a whole: mind, body, and spirit. The center’s tranquil confines help accomplish this goal while staff perform treatments influenced by a blend of Eastern and Western therapies. During a traditional Thai massage, the therapist combines muscle compression, acupressure, and yoga-like body manipulations to energize patients without switching their vitamins with espresso beans. They also offer tropical hot-stone massages, signature body scrubs and wraps, herbal body wraps, and Thai reflexology, which targets pressure points in the feet to balance the body’s energy.
Scott Brukman specializes in Thai yoga massage at Narada Wellness, LLC, drawing upon 25 years of his own yoga and Eastern medicine experience, and 2,500 years of Thai yoga massage techniques. Thai yoga massage incorporates Thai acupressure massage, passive yoga stretching, and hot herbal compresses while the client, fully clothed, lies on a floor mat. During a session, Scott might further the healing with deep tissue massage, foot reflexology, or the use of Tibetan singing bowls.
What began as a teenage interest in yoga and meditation eventually inspired Sarah Sazama to study Thai massage—in Thailand. She believes wholeheartedly in the healing power of touch, and at Metta Massage of Denver, her massage sessions are meant to heal not just the body but boost the mind as well. As she tugs her clients' limbs into stretches during Thai massage, she aims to relieve tension and restore flexibility while fostering peace of mind and calmness. For integrative massage, she draws from an arsenal of techniques—soothing Swedish strokes or more intensive ministrations of trigger-point release, for example—whatever might help with her client's issues, whether its sciatic pain or tension in the shoulders from waving at every plane that goes by.
