Body Work

Body Work at Yoga Community

with Anjuli Mahendra & Alok Rocheleau

Zen Thai Shiatsu Massage: This practice involves deep release of tension through compression, passive stretching and dispersal techniques. The Chinese meridian system is used to bring balance to the body by removing blockages to the free flow of energy throughout the body. Each massage is customized intuitively for the client’s needs. Sessions are done on a floor mat over loose clothing and can be infused with cranio-sacral, myofascial release, and acupressure techniques. 

Integrated Table Massage: This treatment focuses on following the body’s natural pathways to release tension and restore the innate balance of the body. Long strokes are used with soothing oil on the skin to elongate the connective tissue. Sessions are tailored to the client’s specific needs; be it acute injury relief, emotional release, chronic discomfort, or relaxation. Techniques from Structural Integration, Craniosacral, Thai, Shiatsu, and Intuitive Unwinding can also be included in the treatment. 

Chi Nei Tsang: Chi Nei Tsang literally means “working the energy of the internal organs”. The focus is on the abdomen with deep, soft and gentle touches to train internal organs to work more efficiently. These sessions balance the body by working directly with meridian reflex points, particularly useful for emotional and digestive harmony. Oil is usually applied to the belly and pressure can range from subtle to deep, depending on the client’s needs. It is best to have no food at least 2 hours before this treatment. 

Couples Massage: You and your partner will receive massage together from Anjuli and her partner Alok Rocheleau. Couples sessions are a great way to harmonize your energies together. Possible modalities listed above.
