Studying Thai massage with Chris Ray this past week was nothing short of transformative. Class overlooked the shores of Lake Superior and this view of nature in all her glory augmented the learning and healing taking place. Chris Ray is one of the most intuitive and stupendous Thai massage practitioners alive today. His use of body weight and straps to gently and thoroughly transmit the practitioner's body weight to the client in a slow sustained way is brilliant. His insistence on deep breathing throughout the session allows the deepest level of release to take place. I am ever grateful to Chris and his partner Kate for their generosity of time, lessons, space, food, energy and love. I am excited to incorporate these techniques into my sessions as I integrate all that I learned.
