Join us for a night of self care to recalibrate your body and mind. Our evening will begin with a guided meditative journey into restorative yoga postures that will allow your body to enter a state of total relaxation. From this place of peace, you will receive a 60 minute sound bath by Kiko and treated to thai massages by Mercedes. This event is limited to a very small group to ensure you receive special attention and care.

About Mercedes Leggett
Mercedes has been an athlete her entire life. With this has come lots of injuries. After receiving her first Thai Massage, she knew she wanted to share the healing powers of this 2000 year old body work with others. She practices on a floor mat with the client clothed, no oils or lotions are needed during the session. Thai massage is a combination of massage and stretching in restorative yoga postures and is suitable for everyone.
She uses compression techniques with her hands, elbows, shins and feet with moderate to strong pressure, depending on what is needed in the treatment. Her sessions promote mobility, flexibility, body awareness, mindful breathing, uplifting energy and deep relaxation. Mercedes also uses heated bundles during sessions. The heated aromatic bundle ingredients include tiger balm, ginger, lemongrass, camphor and eucalyptus. When an area of high tone, stiffness and tension are found, Mercedes applies the aromatic bundle over the area, encouraging deep relaxation in order to help go deeper in releasing the tension. It promotes rebuilding and nourishing blood flow, deeper aromatic relaxation, mobility, flexibility, and releasing stored stress in the body.
