My 2-hour Thai Yoga Therapy session was a wonderful experience. I would (and will) recommend Arielle to anybody. She is a compassionate and intuitive practitioner. Her studio is clean, cozy, and serene. The massage itself was relaxing and it loosened me up. My favorite part of the session was what transpired afterwards. Arielle sat down with me and talked with me about the meridian lines of the body and the meridian blocks that she found during my session. This was fascinating and eye-opening. She didn't rush through it; she was totally present. I was amazed at how she intuitively was able to pick up on some blockages, and when we discussed factors that could be contributing to the blockages, it was right on point and incredibly insightful. This has been a memorable experience for me, and I will definitely be back again!
