SAWITREE (JA)

General Manager / Massage Practitioner

Specialty: Thai Massage, Bodyworks.

My background and experience allow me to tailor my treatments to each client’s individual needs, blending various types of eastern and western modalities.  My passion has always been to provide a healing experience for my clients, and to combine ancient healing methods to transform the body, mind, and spirit. I find it very rewarding to help people who are recovering from injuries. I use gentle touch and rhythmical movements so that the mind and tissue begin to soften, letting go of long held patterns of constriction. I am sensitive and recognize when the body needs to be coerced to let go, so the healing process can begin. My work comes out of a deep compassion for people, and the recognition that a holistic approach to bodywork, alleviates pain, relaxes the mind, and enriches the soul.

Max Mcmullen

Specialty:Injury prevention, Injury Recuperation, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, Foot Massage.

He’s rewarded by knowing that through his massage practice he’s helping others achieve a balanced body-mind. Sports Massage and Recovery Massage are two of Max’s specialties, however he also excels in Deep Tissue and Swedish Massage, and incorporates Thai techniques and acupressure into his work.

Max’s bodywork philosophy…

I believe that to create a body balance you have to work through the entire body. When there’s an injury, for instance, instead of trying to cure the symptoms, you have to address the cause. If it’s a shoulder injury, for example, you also have to work on the chest, back, and arm. I like to work with the whole body to create holistic symmetry
