Wellness Workshop to Menlo School Students

In February, Founders Megha and Wendell presented a workshop to the students of Menlo School at the San Francisco Buddhist Meditation Center. Our workshop presented global cultural practices for self-care that help us understand the self better.

Throughout the course, we taught the students about different systems and multi-cultural perspectives of the human body. Everything from cardiovascular pathways to primary meridians of Traditional Chinese Medicine was covered. We learned and put into practice Thai Foot reflexology and Shiatsu techniques. And, we balanced our chakras and conjured our ability to heal the self through some basic Reiki skills.

We hope that the students that came to learn about the Ancient Wellness Arts will take the knowledge and experience they acquired and implement it into their own lifestyles.

It is our great honor to transfer the knowledge of caring for the self the student that attended our wellness workshop. Thank you!

See what they have to say about their Body Awakening Wellness Workshop!

Thai Foot Reflexology Workshop – April 20th 2013

The Thai understand the nuance of body mechanics. If you’ve ever received a Thai-style massage session, you’ll know the depth of this statement. Thai massage is a practice of manipulating the body utilizing grace, pressure, leverage, and a little planned spontaneity. A session will take you through an experience of great relief, unwinding, deep breathing and pushing boundaries. The Thai also recognized that all of the body’s internal organs have nervous pathway referral points in the feet, leading to the art of Thai foot reflexology – revitalizing the inside of the body though focused massage techniques on this often achy and neglected body part.

Thai foot reflexology massage rhythmically is applied to loosen, open, stretch and soften tension and promote circulation in vital pathways.The musculoskeletal system and organs will receive attention through the course of a session. The spine is twisted gently, the lungs refreshed, the liver is cleansed, and intestines are palpated in a non-invasive manner. Incorporating knowledge acquired from millennia of practice, Thai foot reflexology is a great way to restore the body from the feet up!

Massage therapist, Wendell Doman, learned Thai foot reflexology during his travels to Thailand. He will be sharing this therapeutic art during a 2-hour hands on workshop  that will provide a brief introduction to the history and practice of Thai massage, understanding of the energetic and physiological pathways of the foot and instruction to give and receive a 45 minute Thai foot reflexology massage.
