Thaddeus approaches bodywork as an exercise in healing and an opportunity to explore our relationship with our “selves” on a deep, somatic level. Grounded in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Thaddeus specializes in the traditional Japanese acupressure technique of Shiatsu, as well as the subtle acupressure systems of Jin Shin Do and Reiki. He employs these ancient and profound systems to encourage the clearing of energetic blocks so that one is afforded an opportunity to return to his or her optimal sense of well-being.
In addition, Thaddeus is a personal student of David Garrigues, one of only a few westerners certified to teach the traditional Ashtanga system as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. In 2009 Thaddeus completed his teacher training with David and has since continued his relationship with him. Thaddeus provides instruction in Ashtanga in accordance with this lineage and is available for private yoga sessions for individuals at all levels of yoga experience.
