Thai Yoga Massage and Beyond; A Success Story on
How to Free Oneself From Chronic Headaches.
"I have suffered
from chronic headaches for 25 years - I had a headache
literally every day. After treating with nationally
reknowned head pain management physicians, I experienced
substantial improvement, but I was taking strong prescription
medications. I thought I'd try Thai massage on the recommendation
of a colleague and I found Lucile on the internet. The
results have been astounding! My headaches have decreased
95% and I no longer take the medications.
With careful stretching and strong but delicate work, Lucile
tunes my tight and strained muscles like the strings of
a violin. My body and joints feel more limber and
I actually feel taller after the sessions. I had
tried deep tissue massage, physical therapy and rolfing
before with limited success. Lucile's treatments
have surpassed even my wildest expectations --
and I am a realist! I truly consider these treatments as
part of my health care regime - I have been able to avoid
stressing my organs with pharmaceuticals and I have found
pain relief at the same time." -Diana McBroom, Attorney-
"I HAVE SPINAL STENOSIS AND SEVERE FACET JOINT ARTHRITIS,
ALONG WITH DISC PROBLEMS. After taking up to sixteen Advil
per day and a year of physical therapy, I started a treatment
with a hospital pain management program, using STEROID
INJECTIONS AND OPIATE PAIN MEDICATIONS. Right before I
met Lucile, the doctor was considering doing a procedure
that would burn off the nerve endings in the facet joints.
AFTER 3 SESSIONS OF THAI VINYASA, MY BACK PAIN IS 80%
BETTER. I NO LONGER HAVE TO RELY ON PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS
FOR MY BACK. After years of being in the corporate world,
Lucile has honored her true gift. She possesses wonderful,
intuitive healing skills which anyone deserves to benefit
from."- Jean R., Psychologist.
"I discovered Thai Vinyasa while LOOKING FOR MASSAGE
ALTERNATIVES since traditional ones had not resolved the
CONSTANT PAIN I WAS IN. Lucile has worked patiently stretching
me and releasing tension points to the point where MY
CHRONIC HEADACHES HAVE DECREASED SUBSTANTIALLY. Lucile
has been extremely perceptive (...) She has encouraged
me in nutrition, in my developing yoga practice and in
recognizing areas in my body where I hold stress. Overall,
I am more flexible, my energy feels more balanced and
YEARS OF TENSION HAVE BEEN RELEASED. Thai Vinyasa has
definitely helped me after I had exhausted all of modern
medicine's options." -Lydia M., Registered Nurse.
have been a MIDWIFE FOR OVER 20 YEARS, working in a variety
of settings within the UK. I am currently based in the
community and had the pleasure of being the midwife ON-CALL
on the evening of one of our planned home birth women
going into labour. She was a primiparous woman (i.e. her
first baby) and the couple were planning a water birth.
I met Lucile (who was also in attendance) and was happy
to see the obvious teamwork that was taking place. Lucile
appeared to be performing a BLEND OF POWERFUL STROKES,
MANIPULATION OF THE LIMBS, GENTLE VIBRATIONAL WORK AND
ACUPRESSURE in a very focused way. She appeared to be
working INTUITIVELY to help the woman in labour ride the
contractions and open her sacrum and pelvis WITHOUT THE
USE OF DRUGS. In a relatively short period of time the
couple gave birth to a healthy girl in the birthing pool.
I later found out this method is known as THAI VINYASA.
Lucile explained a little about it which I found enlightening
and educational. A satisfactory birthing outcome can be
largely dependent on how well the woman can relax her
body, disconnect with the external environment and allow
her body to do what it is designed to do without interference.
THE ENTIRE BIRTHING EXPERIENCE WAS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL,
PEACEFUL AND NATURAL BIRTHS I have had the pleasure attending.
I feel LUCILE’s EXPERTISE AND INNATE WORKING HELPED
THE WOMAN TREMENDOUSLY and I WOULD ENCOURAGE COUPLES TO
INVESTIGATE THE USE OF THAI VINYASA IN THEIR PRENATAL
PREPARATION AND BIRTHING PLANS."- Sally Dimmick,
Midwife in UK– MMid, BSc (hons), ADM, RM, RGN.
is the best treatment I have ever had! This
has done more for me than having acupuncture and massage.

"(...) to my
surprise, my headache was gone after a short mini-session
Even more dramatic was how I felt the next day. First,
I woke up sleeping on my back (...) and was able
to get out of bed with no pain. I haven't been
able to sleep on my back or be pain-free when getting
out of bed for months.
Second, my mobility was much improved and it lasted
for days. Even my friends commented on how much better
and more confidently I was moving around. (...)
I've been through many sessions of physical therapy and
other treatment modalities due to injuries I sustained.
Thai Vinyasa with Lucile is my treatment of choice
because it provides long-lasting physical relief and mobility
improvement that I can build upon for more results and
more progress." -Lauren L., Researcher
"I wanted to let you know
how much I enjoyed my massage last Friday. Not only was
it a very positive experience for me during
the massage, but afterwards as well. I was amazed that I
didn't have any pain anywhere in my body for a
good 36 hours. That is something I never feel. I always
hurt somewhere, whether it's my wrists and elbows from computer
work, or my feet from plantar faciitis, or the SI pain I
described to you. Instead, I felt free and totally relaxed.
I also didn't have my usual sugar cravings.
(...) Thank you for a beautiful experience. You are an amazing
woman." -Dena Serrato, Engineer
"When Lucile works on
me, I know I am in good hands. She pays attention to every
little detail. The combination she uses of stretching
and pressure points stimulation along with my deep breathing
helps immensely my asthma and works
wonders to open up my chest and shoulder muscles."
-Cori Smale, Massage Therapist
having a Thai Vinyasa, I played my best game ever!"
-Gary Griffin, Golf Player
"I train heavily in tennis.
Since Lucile has done Thai Vinyasa on me, my whole body
alignment has shifted and I walk differently. Even the
calluses on my feet have disappeared." -J.R., Tennis
a Thai Vinyasa with Lucile was the best hour
and half of my life! I felt as if I
had lost 20 pounds after the session. I felt
so long, so light and energized."
