Jacksonville, Florida - Tel. (904) 228 0570

Jax Thai Massage & Bodywork is a massage therapy studio in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. I am a licensed massage therapist with more than 10 years of experience in the field. I began my career working with professional athletes and found that Thai massage was a good fit for them. This technique allows for deeper stretches, as it is performed with the client lying on a mat on the floor instead of on a massage table.

I also do traditional table massage.

I am licensed and insured. I look forward to seeing you soon!

Why We Chose to Support Muay Thai Fighters

With Thai Massage being such a force for wellness and improved mobility , some people have asked why we chose to sponsor two female fighters for the 2017 Muay Thai World Expo. Those who asked really did so from a place of curiosity and we love that!

So why are we sponsoring Jennifer and Alfie? 

Because it is important to us that all people have a voice. In the years since we have been doing Thai Massage, one thing we have always noticed is that when people have the opportunity to express themselves—how they are feeling, if they are hurting or experiencing discomfort, in any way, really—it greatly improves the effectiveness of the work we do in helping them experience improved mobility. Being heard relieves tension and stress. How these women tie into that is that their work and their success helps young women see that strong and confident is beautiful.

Alfie said it best by saying, "I compete because the fire inside of me is stronger than the storms around me; to be a shining example to all girls (including my daughter) so they know that strong, powerful and courageous is beautiful!"

So we are proud to support both these women and wish them the greatest of luck! And we thank you for the curiosity and the time to read this. We hope to see you soon! :-)

 

Preparing for winter's rest

As the holiday season approaches, our thoughts turn to family gatherings, sharing with loved ones. But, often we get so caught up in the shopping and other activities, that we forget about ourselves. We tend to overextend our time, and our bodies. Nature shows us that the winter season is a time of rest and rejuvenation. Trees, and our animal friends are a good example of that rest. Trees lose their leaves, some animals go into hibernation. All to rest, and prepare for the season of spring. 

We hope this winter, you will be kind to yourselves. Be gentle and patient with your bodies. A cup of warm tea, in a quiet place, a good book that you have been wanting to read, or just a quiet time for meditation or prayer can be a wonderful way to restore your body and mind. A gentle yoga class to help rejuvenate and  stretch your body. 

These things only require a bit of your time, but they can make a big difference in your life, and the lives of your family and friends.

Here at Jax Thai Massage & Bodywork, we hope that you will schedule a Thai Yoga Massage, or a customized massage for yourself soon. In preparation for your winters rest. 

with loving kindness, your partner in health,

Tied up in knots.....

Family obligations, work/job related stress, these things can really leave you feeling anxious, tired, and mentally fatigued. Studies have shown that stress can lead to many health problems.  Massage therapy continues to be a great way to help lower stress. Thai Yoga massage, can often bring improved flexibility, improved blood circulation. While your body is able to relax and receive the benefits of massage, your brain also has the opportunity to "unplug", to become quiet, allowing you to become more relaxed at a deeper level. You become more focused, improve sleep habits.  "How often should I be getting massage"? A frequently asked question. This is very subjective. Always listen to your body, what is it trying to tell you? Massage is an affordable way to address stress, and become a part of your wellness program. 

Final thoughts....Please remember to be kind to yourself, be gentle, and smile. :)

We hope you visit us soon. :)
