Thai bodywork/Assisted Stretching/Reiki
Thai bodywork is a dynamic therapy based on yoga and Ayurveda where the practitioner guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body's energy ("Sen") lines and pressure points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation and digestion, boosts the immune system, improves sleep, increases energy, and balances the body. Brianna combines her knowledge of these practices with her understanding of somatic/sensory awareness and healing touch informed by years of dancing and practicing yoga, her training in the Outer Reach method of assisted stretching, as well as intuitive listening supported by reiki and meditation. Each session is unique and tapered to the needs of each recipient. 75 or 90 minute sessions.

Andre Ignacio Dimapilis is a Filipinx-American culture-bearing performance artist, sound facilitator, and peaceful warrior. Andre’s journey with sound started in 2007 with the didgeridoo, performing on stage with blues, funk, hip-hop and dance artists. Then, he shifted his focus to communicating with the divine by blowing spirit through the didgeridoo during meditations. While listening to divine Spirit and intuition, Andre was guided to use other indigenous and traditional instruments for setting intentions during ritual, ceremony, and spiritual work. He is the founder of Kalayaan Sound LLC. Kalayaan is the Filipinx word for freedom, using sound for participants to re-connect and re-member the freedom of their spirit. Andre infuses ancestral wisdom and indigenous knowledge for participants to listen with their body, connect with spirit, and have clear intentions during sound therapy sessions for a personalized and meaningful experience.
