“Optimal health is defined as a balance of physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and intellectual health.  Lifestyle change can be facilitated through a combination of efforts to enhance awareness, change behavior and create environments

that support good health practices.”


 (American Journal of Health Promotion, 1989, 3,3,5)

Ancient, practical and adaptable system of vital therapeutics uniquely derived from a blend of religious/spiritually based Native American, Indigenous traditional practices of healing and well being, Classical Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Indonesian Yunani Medicine.

The benefits of healing the body through touch are traditional to nearly every culture. Somaveda Thai Therapy provides specific physiological and psychological benefits ranging from treating chronic pain from past injury to alleviating tension from a busy lifestyle.

7-day Restorative Protocol

This introductory SomaVeda® Thai Massage Vinyasa is a general balancing session, developed by Aachan, Dr. Anthony James of the Oklevueha NACS/ Thai Yoga Center. This flow can give you an easy intro to the complexity of Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy and SomaVeda. It goes through all five traditional attitudes of the body, bringing energy to all the primary Sen Line, Prana Nadi and Meridians and balances all of the principle Chakra. It may relieve stress and reduce back pain. It increases circulation and clients often say it's the best hands-on bodywork session they have ever received.

Laying of the Hands, Thai-style

Ruth has repeatedly seen how the body, on all levels, works toward balance. Healing one's emotions is interwoven with healing in the physical body and as well as the spiritual realm. Emotions are carried throughout the body and manifest in a wide variety of physical symptoms, belief structures, and behavioral patterns. Stress in one's daily life is carried in the physiology of the body. Through working with the body, one can gain awareness, insight, and healing by recognizing that one's "symptoms" are part of a bigger picture. Every being (on some level) has a story that yearns to be told and compassionately heard, not only in the presence of another but most importantly through itself. Learning how to be present to one's own physical body, emotions, thoughts, and spiritual connections in life-supportive ways can have profound effects on one's general health and wellness.
