My name is Bianca Gilliam and I am entirely new to the practice of Thai massage (massage in general). I come to this practice with a background in yoga. I have been practicing on and off for 10 years with the last two years being consistent. There is nothing I love more than spending time on the mat and letting my body unfold. 

I began working for a massage therapist here in the Richmond area about six months ago as a receptionists/jack of all trades. It has been a rewarding experience and I love the people I work with! My boss offered to pay for this training as she knows I am interested in not only yoga for myself but for others. I initially was hesitant because western massage techniques do not really interest me in the sense that I would be practicing them. I dove in anyways because I think many of the most beautiful things in life come after taking a risk and trusting that the universe will provide you with what you need. I really look forward to learning about healing others with the use of Thai massage. 

I am also really excited to be doing this training with my fiance as my partner. We have practiced acro yoga together and in many of the classes they taught us a very short sequence of Thai massage that could be used at home. We use these techniques often and I cannot wait to expand on them and use them in the home more often. 

When I finish this training I hope to begin taking clients at my current job. I hope to teach people about their breath and the wonderful ways in which it can be used to heal. I hope to extend health and wellness to each person that comes into my life.
