T’ai Jamar first learned intuitive touch via her parents, both Doctors of Oriental Medicine, when she was a young child. Her parents offered foot rubs and head massages to her as a child, and, in essence, she discovered Reflexology and Reiki as part of her developing sense of touch.
In 2014, T’ai Jamar Hanna became a LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist) and “Licensed to touch” in NYC. Her touch is intuitive and informed by the individual’s healing process. Her practice is personal and instinctual, based on each person’s capacity to heal themselves.
In the last twelve years in NYC, she has been an agent, personal assistant, producer, and event coordinator. After 5 years in the fashion industry, she trained to become a 200-hour registered yoga teacher with Paula Tursi and Peter Kaaberol Kristensen of Reflections Yoga in 2006. It was then she discovered the art of Thai Yoga Massage. Since 2006, she has obtained over 300 hours in advanced yoga therapy and 200 hours in advanced Thai techniques, studying with David Lutt of Osteo Thai College, Nerve Touch Chaing Mai, Thai Massage Circus in Laos, and the Thai Institute in Virginia. T’ai has completed several other mind-body trainings including Yoga Tune Up, Anya, and Body Tuning. Concurrently, she obtained a Masters in Nonprofit Management at Milano, The New School, 2010 and completed the Eastern Massage Therapy program in 2013 at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine
T’ai Jamar is a senior teacher with Reflections Center for Conscious Living and the founder of Integral Healing Arts, offering international and domestic workshops, trainings, and classes in yoga therapy, Thai Yoga Massage, and dynamic movement. Whether on a table, in the floor, in a classroom, or within her personal relationships, T’ai believes in the power of love and kindness.
