Kangen Water

Bikram Yoga Richmond offers free Kangen water for all of our students and for people interested in purchasing a home machine.
Kangen Water is a trademark of Enagic Inc. of Japan. Kangen has become a household word in Japan and is now used mostly to describe healthy alkaline drinking water which is rich in minerals, purged of impurities, and ionized through electrolysis. Alkaline Kangen Water is rich in antioxidants and is an excellent choice for healthy hydration. Not only does it taste great and refreshing, it’s also highly drinkable.

Electrolysis is the process that separates water into alkaline and acidic water. The desired pH level of the resulting water can be selected by the operator of the machine. The machine produces 5 types of water with endless uses for your home or business.

Massage Therapy


One of the oldest of the healing arts, massage therapy includes a number of techniques designed to promote health and well-being. The benefits of massage therapy are varied and far-reaching including increasing circulation and increasing flexibility by relieving muscle tightness and tension. Massage can also be instrumental in helping ease chronic pain and in the healing of injuries by working through scar tissue and adhesions. And as many studies have shown, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.

Reflexology

In reflexology, the feet are said to contain reflex areas that mirror and connect to all parts of the body. Gentle pressure is applied to reflex areas of the feet (and sometimes the hands) in order to decrease stress and bring the body into equilibrium. Function in the connecting area is improved and, at the same time, the body experiences overall relaxation and benefits to all of the body’s systems.

Michelle has been practicing massage therapy since 1992. A former social worker, Michelle earned an undergraduate degree in sociology from Adrian College in Michigan and her graduate degree in Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University. In the early nineties, wanting to learn more about the mind-body connection she attended the Richmond Academy of Massage and became a certified massage therapist.

Michelle believes in, and research supports, the myriad benefits of massage – benefits ranging from treating injuries and chronic physical conditions to alleviating the stress we all seem to have in our lives. Massage can provide an integration of body and mind (much like our Bikram Yoga practice) by producing an almost meditative state or a heightened awareness of living in the present moment. Massage can provide emotional balance – bringing with it true relaxation and peace.

Years of experience along with numerous continuing education courses have helped Michelle’s ability to design a massage therapy session specific to each client’s needs. She is well versed in the traditional Swedish techniques, as well as therapeutic and deep tissue, sports massage, light techniques for those clients not able to accommodate a deep touch, and reflexology. As a Bikram Yoga student herself, Michelle understands the unique needs of its’ practitioners and can address these concerns during the massage session.
