Confluence Closing Reception + Ladies Night Crawl
The Confluence collection graced Forge & Finish Gallery walls for a memorable opening night. The gallery was brimming with fellow artists and art enthusiasts. Huge thanks to Candace Jensen on her curatorial debut. She presented a seamless palette of works alongside her colleagues, Sophie Brenneman and J. Hartz, each graduates from the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts.

What is Thai Yoga Massage?
The Origins: 2,500 years ago a dynamic bodywork therapy based upon yoga and Ayurveda practices, appeared in the temples of Thailand. This therapeutic art was directly rooted in the Indian healing traditions of Ayurvedic medicine. The father founder of Thai Yoga Massage, Jivaka Kumarbhaccha was a renowned doctor and yogi, he treated the Buddha, among others. After the Buddha’s death, the earliest Buddhist monks travelled to Southeast Asia and were accompanied by Ayurvedic doctors. These doctors practiced a healing art, that would later evolve into traditional Thai Massage.
In this unique healing system of Thai Yoga Massage, also called Nuad Boran, the practitioner guides the client through a series of yoga postures, while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy (‘Sen’) lines and pressure points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically.
Thai Yoga Massage is performed on a mat on the floor; both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing allowing ease of movement and flexibility.
