Thai Bodywork: A Qualitative Exploration into the Evolving Principles of Practice

Jaye Marolla

My exploration of Thai bodywork began with Ajarn Pichest Boonthume in Chiang Mai, Thailand where I studied for 3 years. In 2011 I returned to the U.S. to gain my licensure as a massage therapist and continue study with Nephyr Jacobsen in Portland, Oregon. Upon completing a 6-month intensive massage certification I began my practice here in Ashland, Oregon where I have been based the past 4 years. I currently focus on therapeutic bodywork and advocating for bodywork as a key element of basic preventative and treatment oriented medicine. Upon completing a master's degree of Complementary Medicine in London I began more extensively focusing on teaching Thai Bodywork through workshops, small groups and an apprenticeship program.
