Anjuli Mahendra is a multi-modality massage therapist, teacher, and founder of Shakticura Healing Lounge. Her private practice, Embodied Resonance includes integrated bodywork, movement classes, coaching, and workshops that focus on opening the body to it’s highest potential.
Anjuli’s healing practice is an integrated form of structural and Thai bodywork focused on balancing the body with connective tissue elongation, deep stretching, compression, acupressure, and intuitive unwinding. Her practice incorporates a range of techniques informed by traditional healing arts systems including Shiatsu and Taoist bodywork and can include abdominal massage to balance the organs and meridians of the body. Anjuli’s therapeutic, intuitive touch has been helping people work through acute physical/emotional imbalances as well as deep-seated, chronic ailments for many years. In addition to working in the connective tissue, joint, and muscular fields of the body to restore alignment, she also tunes into the energetic field, encouraging clients to listen to their inner state of being.She customizes each session to her client’s needs and can offer a series of specialized sessions to help restore the innate balance of the body.
I really enjoy working one-on-one with clients to help them return to their body's innate balance and ease. It's very rewarding to help folks release stress, tension, and discomfort with my treatments. My goal is that clients walk away with some self-care tools that they can take home with them. As a yoga and movement teacher, I often offer a few stretches and sadhanas that they could incorporate into their daily routine.
I highly recommend Anjuli for anyone wanting to release stress or tension. Anjuli has a presence that is calm, receptive and nurturing. She has a very healing touch that helped soothe my muscles and aches. She intuitively knew exactly where I needed more work and focussed on those areas. I left the sessions feeling lighter and more peaceful than I have in a long time.
We will do a new client in-take before treatment. This is usually done in person right before the session begins. If a client prefers, they can fill out their in-take by email with me before they come in.
