Hannah is a Yoga Alliance certified yoga instructor and a committed student of mindfulness and Vipassana Meditation. Hannah incorporates a broad spectrum of healing modalities from deep stillness of Bio Cranial Therapy to invigorating barefoot Ashiatsu -Thai Massage. Ashiatsu is deep barefoot massage to reach the depths of muscle tissue and increase lymph and circulation. This approach is the result of Japanese and Indian traditions coming together to form an effective treatment to transform the soft tissue system. This practice is a beautiful extension of Thai Massage meets deep myofascial release. Using this approach Hannah is able to follow the guidelines of treatment oriented medical massage and neuromuscular therapy. The greater contact surface of the feet creates a broad approach that is more comfortable and incredibly relaxing, and more sustainable for her practice.
