Mari is a licensed massage therapist, she has been a practitioner since 2008 and has developed a passion for Thai massage since the beginning of her massage career. She studied for an entire year with her first Thai massage teacher in Dallas, and then set out on her first journey to Thailand in 2009. There she spent two months in Chaing Mai with her Guru, master teacher of Thai massage, Pichest Boonthumme. He is a highly regarded and well know teacher in all of north Thailand. With his teachings, and her passion, it took her beyond the physical technique, and delved deeper into the intuition and feeling of the body. With this she feels capable of bringing a more unique and individualized session with each client, rather than a same carbon copy experience. After her three years of taking these skills back to America, she decided she was ready for another adventure to Thailand, and came back to Chaing Mai in 2012 for another couple months of dedication with her teacher. Beyond Thai massage, Mari is highly skilled in other modalities of massage, including deep tissue, Ashiatsu, Thai reflexology and several other techniques.
