What you'll do

Upon arrival, you will be greeted at our relaxing 'Buddha Fountain' with a fresh cup of tea as we check in and discuss your treatment plan. When ready, we will move to a healing temple, located on my property, where you will be offered a short essential oil foot massage, to help you prepare for the deeper Thai bodywork experience.
We will then progress through a variety of stretches and press points that will open and relax your muscles and joints, as well as activate specific energy lines.
Often called 'Lazy Person's Yoga,' you can expect to receive similar benefits as going to a yoga class combined with getting a massage but without any effort on your part. This work is designed to be completely non stressful for you as I will do all the work. Part of this experience includes an optional and blissful 'back walk' where I will be holding onto special ceiling bars as I walk up on down your back. The complete treatment is guaranteed to be relaxing, rejuvenating as well as profoundly healing.

Meet your host, Michael

I have been devoted to the study and practice of Traditional Thai Massage for over twenty years. Having traveled to Thailand nine times, I now lead Thai Massage Study Abroad tours over there as I continue to delve deeper into this ancient practice. I am a licensed massage therapist as well as a nationally approved CE provider, so I not only offer treatments but also teach others how to do the same. I love this practice and enjoy sharing it with others, especially those who have never had it before.

Where you'll be

The majority of the session will be held on our property in a unique structure that we built in our private wooded backyard. Afterwards, you are welcome to walk the 2 mile trail from our house which leads to the top of a hillside with a beautiful overlook view of the city and our beautiful Blue Ridge mountain ranges. This trail is a true gem of local Asheville, as it is not well known about and has the very best views of any other trail in town.

Give yourself this gift. I get massages all the time and have had them at world class spas. This is something completely different. Michael has been doing this for 20 years and he was very mindful and effective. This will be a stop any time that I am in the area. He's truly a healer.

Michael’s massage was unlike any other massage I have ever experienced. He took his time to find out about my body and my areas of concern (shoulders, hips and legs). I especially liked the deep stretches and assisted bends. The pressure he used was perfect, enough to feel the difference but not painful. I will definitely book another massage with Michael on my next visit to Asheville.

This was an amazing experience! Michael was extremely welcoming, knowledgable, talked me through everything, and gave me some directions for a great hike afterward. I would certainly stop in again for another session next time I'm back in town.

Michael is very good at tailoring the massage to your specific needs. I found him to be a gentle soul with firm pressure, which is just what I needed. What a treat! My body says thank you.

My sister and I received a wonderful Thai massage from Michael while visiting Asheville for Christmas vacation. Not only was he extremely accommodating, but also very welcoming allowing my sister and I to feel very comfortable during our first Thai massage. Michael has a great touch and we left feeling relaxed and grounded. To top it all off the setting was just amazing and really made for a beautiful experience!
