Alicia Joy, QLEC, LMT realized her natural gift as a healer while studying Classical Swedish massage and reflexology.
Her gift for massage comes with many modalities such as Swedish, Myofacial, Acupressure, Meridian and Thai techniques. However, Thai Yoga Massage is the technique she is best known for.
After developing chronic back spasms, I sought relief through the practice of this mindful healing and cultural blessing from Thailand. Its responsible for inspiring me to pursue my true nature as an energy healer and massage therapist.
