Vedic Thai Body Work
2,500 years ago a dynamic bodywork therapy based upon yoga and Ayurveda practices, appeared in the temples of Thailand. This therapeutic art was directly rooted in the Indian healing traditions of Ayurvedic medicine. The father founder of Thai Yoga Massage, Jivaka Kumarbhaccha was a renowned doctor and yogi, he treated the Buddha, among others. After the Buddha’s death, the earliest Buddhist monks travelled to Southeast Asia and were accompanied by Ayurvedic doctors. These doctors practiced a healing art, that would later evolve into traditional Thai Massage.
In this unique healing system of Thai Yoga Bodywork, also called Nuad Boran, the practitioner guides the client through a series of yoga postures, while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy (‘Sen’) lines and pressure points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically.
Thai Yoga bodywork techniques incorporate stretching, palming, and pressure points over the entire body. The ancient healing knowledge of Thailand is amazing and highly therapeutic. Our specialized experience in Thai Yoga bodywork relieves muscle pain and tension resulting in you feeling completely restored and rejuvenated.
Thai Yoga bodywork is performed on a mat on the floor; both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing allowing ease of movement and flexibility.

Can I give Karen LaFlair six stars? Or maybe a million? Yes, I think I can. Karen gets a one million star rating.
Silliness aside, I could not be more pleased with Karen’s Thai Bodywork. It has helped me on so many more levels than just “working out the knots”. Don’t get me wrong, I still love working out the knots and you definitely get that with Thai Bodywork, but it has helped me in so many more ways.
Being as active as I am, I run into a lot of pulled, sore muscles; a lot of strains and sprains. I also have past injuries, specifically, a knee reconstruction from a torn ACL and meniscus. In addition to all of that, I have dealt with terrible anxiety and panic attacks that were a result of being diagnosed with cancer in October 2013. Although I can confidently say that I am now “cancer free”, the anxiety is still there. Anyone who has experienced a panic attack knows the toll that it takes on the body. Thai Bodywork has helped me address all of this. It has helped me release and relax areas of the body that traditional massage therapy and yoga has not been able touch.
From the Metro Detroit area and looking for more than the “just work the knots out”? Are you looking to try something new that both feels amazing and does wonders for the body? Then schedule a Thai Bodywork session with Karen LaFlair. You won't regret it.
Last week I had a truly beautiful, moving and therapeutic Thai Yoga session with Karen LaFlair! Karen is not only a talented Yogi but a beautiful Bodyworker! She created an environment that was welcoming, safe and energetically perfect to do the work we needed to do. Karen's intention and attention from the moment I entered the space was focused, intelligent and supportive! I am a Bodyworker of a complimentary modality and can attest both professionally and personally that her work is impeccable. I was honored to receive her gift and looking forward to our next session. Thank You Karen!!
Karen is AMAZING! Her Thai Yoga was exactly what I needed and have been looking for. Between all my running and yoga this session was the perfect solution for my tight shoulders and glutes that typically are the hardest for me to loosen up. I will definitely be scheduling another session in the near future! Highly recommend for anyone who is having any nagging issues or simply just want to feel better.
I do yoga; I didn't think I needed a Thai massage. I couldn't have been more wrong! I am addicted. Karen can stretch my muscles and tendons and move my every joint in ways that I never could. I feel completely wrung out and relaxed when she is done. I love a deep physical massage and this is the best!
