1. Alex was very composed during class. Her presence had a calming effect during class which made it a very pleasant learning experience. Her instruction was clear and insightful. She also was a very empathetic listener to the all of the concerns that would come up during class. She was a true diplomat, treating all the students with respect and doing so with grace. She greatly contributed to the effective use of time in the classroom, invaluable to all the students. Alex was excellent!

2. Dear Alex, As you know, I am very impressed by you and your approach to Thai Yoga Massage.

My friend Matthew was also delighted with your work. He was struck by the spiritual energy that you bring with you. He also found your work has a wonderful flow which allowed him to relax deeply and release a surprising amount of tension in his body.

Matthew and I have each had pale versions of Thai massage before. When Sharon Byrnes recommended you, it was easy for me to come to you because I trust her. Matthew was a bit afraid to come because of his previous negative experience. You quickly put him at ease.

I am so pleased to have found you and look forward to Jim Marks meeting you.

3. I began my work with Alex at a pivotal time in my life. I myself was suffering a tremendous loss and in the midst of unbearable grief. I consciously knew I needed to go on & be strong for my grieving family but I had no idea how to do that. Alex was nurturing, kind, loving, she gave me the space to feel safe & grieve in whatever way I needed. She is wise beyond her years - she is a true healer- combining EFT & Thai massage in her sessions, she is able to help guide both the conscious & subconscious into a state of calm & healing. She taught me the fundamentals of EFT & I feel competent in using EFT to help me work through an emotionally difficult situation. - Torie McSwiggin 4. Somaveda Thai Therapy is a game changer! The work Alex Rybergdid with me was a vital assistance to my recovery, and I now go back for a yearly tune up. I cannot recommend it, or her, enough! - Rev Joe

5. My experience of Thai Yoga Massage with Alex has been wonderful! From the beginning of our sessions, I felt Alex clearly explained the work that we were doing together. It has been such a joy to experience the body's natural healing and therapeutic tendencies through Alex's skillful, compassionate touch and words. Each session has allowed me to work more deeply with my body and breath, giving me the opportunity to release long held tension and deep physical stress in a safe, nurturing environment. I feel more spacious, both physically and mentally, after our sessions. I am in awe of Alex's deep dedication to personal growth and healing. And ever so grateful for it! - Layla Gilman See more photos and other events by this presenter
