Raia Manjula Kogan is a skilled and intuitive bodyworker, offering work that is both therapeutic and nurturing. She brings the intuition of a decade long yoga and meditation discipline into her work, connecting with the essence of her clients and then supporting them to soften the layers that might restrict the full expression of their breath and life energy in this life. Integrating somatic, energetic, and emotional levels of being, bodywork sessions with Raia increase vitality and restore ease of being in the body and mind. Bodywork can benefit all systems of the body; reducing stress, increasing circulation, aiding detoxification and nutrient absorption, speeding injury recovery, increasing immunity, fertility, energy, pain relief, flexibility, and athletic performance. Raia integrates deep tissue massage, acupressure, thai yoga, vibrational sound healing, and energy balancing into her sessions. Clients are empowered to deepen their healing process through yoga, breath-work, and meditation self-care practices.
Raia received a 1000 hour certification in Therapeutic Massage from the Finger Lakes School in Ithaca New York in 2004 and went on to study Shiatsu at the Acupressure Institute and Thai Massage with Lotus Palm School, creating a practice that works with both muskuloskeletal and energetic understandings of the body.

Adam Baraz has trained at the Esalen Institute, the Berkeley Acupressure Institute, Mckinnon Institute in Oakland, and the Pacific Center for Awareness and Bodywork in Kauai. With a combined 1,000 hours clinical practice & study spanning a diverse range of techniques, his approach is to listen closely to the desires and needs of the client, and tailor the work accordingly. He is able to offer strong, active bodywork: invigorating Shiatsu, Structural Integration methods for postural alignment, Connective Tissue Therapy, sports massage, and mobilizations to increase range-of-motion in joints and ligaments. Complementing this, he also offer receptive, quiet-style work: soothing Esalen-style flows, Yin Tui-Na, and Jin Shin Acupressure to calm and balance the channels of the subtle body. He finds that what makes a session of bodywork truly healing is: kind, mindful, open Presence—communicated through touch. His bodywork propels inner transformation, not only to help people relax in their bodies, but also to hold space for clients to genuinely connect with themselves—with the inner clarity, kindness, passion, and purpose—that can be discovered and understood in the space of the heart. Taking part in this kind of session—where a client leaves the table feeling more alive, kind, or clear inside—is one of the greatest sources of joy and meaning in his life.
