About Dominique Warfield:

My pursuit as a healing artist began to take shape in 2009 when I was in college. I traveled throughout the United States to spiritual and intentional communities with a great curiosity to learn about eastern spirituality, Native American ceremony and the fine arts. I obtained a degree in “Expressive Healing Arts” from Prescott Liberal Arts College.

In 2011, I attended Florida School of Massage to deepen my understanding of the body and continue my inner-journey of transformation. I began to study Thai-Massage with Ariela Grodner  and fell in love with this modality. Having been raised as a competitive gymnast/cheerleader/dancer, my body was able to intuitively pick up on the sequences of Thai-Massage.

My practice for Thai-Massage deepened and I started to teach. In 2018, I felt the call to travel to Thailand to learn more. I attended the Sunshine Thai-Massage School in Chiang Mai and studied with Kam They Chow and Ralf Marzen. My research of Thai-Medicine and desire to grow in the teachings of Asokananda lead me to profound healing experiences with master Pichet Boonthumme and the Lahu Village. My devotion to Thai-Massage continues to reveal my deep passion for humanity and the mystical understanding that we are more unified than separate.
It is my mission to share the ancient healing art of Thai- Massage to influence cultural wellness and inspire people to live life with loving-kindness.
