I hope youre all having a fabulous Thursday!
Post vacation thoughts- how reasonable is it to get a pet monkey
Mentally I’m here too!!
Mentally we’re here.
I am DEFINITELY missing these views, but I am so happy to be back home with my little family & getting back to work today ♥️
After a long wonderful trip full of dives & family time, we are rounding things up to get ready to head back to the states 🥺
I understand how scuba divers don’t want to come back to the land - i am now part sea turtle 🐢

It’s very flattering to see other LMTS using our videos to promote their work!
I cant wait to see Gallae Boutique continue to succeed in their business ♥️

I’ve heard some western therapist express their distaste for seated compressions. I think visually they are displeased.
I understand that it’s hard to understand why we do seated compressions if you’re just looking at the work.
The biggest broadest Instrument some of us have is our rear end 🤷🏻♀️ i lay down a blanket on top of my client, giving us a professional barrier & to make sure my bones don’t sharply compress into them and to keep them feeling safe. I will do a seated compression to allow an area to soften before going in with a standing compression. This is the best way to warm a large area quickly to continue moving through the session.
Half the time my clients say they have to look up to see what tool I’m using, as they get lost in the sensation 💜
Lol, I love this chick ♥️ great tips for ”getting thise fuqrs”
Danielle Omo & I Are co teaching the final two classes of the year that are coming up! We have one table thai and one intro to mat left in 2022.

I saw this original meme made by another therapist. The bottom square originally said “I don’t want to.”
The thing is, once a therapist is asked to give more pressure than they’re comfortably able to give, it’s the time where we as the therapist should recommend another style of work that can accommodate the request, not another therapist to possibly injure trying to make this client happy.
I’ve began to realize since becoming fully mat based is that the clients DO know what they want, they just don’t know what it’s called.
I have heard “this is what I always thought deep tissue would feel like”
My ideal clients are in chronic pain. I stumbled into this work from my own chronic pain so I get it.
We ask for more pressure because we need it, we don’t want an additional injury, bruising, or an elbow pushed through our body. We don’t want to be hurt. We want to FEEL deeper pressure to access & unlock our deep aches and pains, and the table isn’t where I found it.
I found the relief I was looking for on the mat through the use of knees, shins, feet, AND the arms, hands, & elbows.
Massage By Kristen gave a talk about being in private practice at The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School yesterday. This is the first of many clips we'll share in coming weeks.
Super exciting to watch this video back today! Each time I teach a class or speak in front of groups, I am getting more and more comfortable and confident with my public speaking!
Coming to talk at Lauterstein-Conway was such an honor for me. I am a 2010 grad & am grateful to have had the opportunity to speak and demo for a soon to be graduating class!! I wish I had been shown different styles of work when I was in school but am happy & feel blessed I met Robert Gardner when I did, early in my career.
Thai massage (Next Level Pain Relief style) is my passion. I cant wait to work with students and clients interested in this work in the future
Hip mobilization, work around the gluteals and lumbar spine, mobility pain relief techniques
♥️ ♥️ I saw this original meme & I HATED IT. The bottom square said “I don’t want to.” 😮
My jobs have always been customer service oriented and so this meme KILLS ME!!! We’ll more of the therapists responses to the meme killed me
But I get it!! Table massage hurts! It hurts to give and it hurts to receive- so why is it still the THING!?
Come try Thai massage (giving and receiving!)
We have our next Intro class in Sept
(We offer a payment plan)
💥 it’s time for a change!!

I love how they turned out, so I have to show you a sneak peek of the photo shoot I did with Rebecca Brumfield last week creating “stock photos” for Thai massage therapists.
When people think massage, they always think the same thing - table, nudity, cream, & glide.
🗣Well people, massage is so much more than just that!
I challenge you to try a different style of massage ♥️ whether it be thai massage or ashi or to go the complete opposite way, trying craniosacral or lomi!! Explore! Try something new!
Explore all the different sides of massage and you may find yourself loving and craving a style of massage you have never experienced before!!
Life is short, so explore and try new things often

I am helping this am with one of his Masterclass suspension thai training sessions with an awesome therapist out of Iowa. The client that’s working with the therapist says, “I was having trouble putting my foot in my shoe the sciatica was so bad. This is the only thing that seems to help.”
This is the exact reasoning I quit the table and moved to the mat work!
