The Healing Arts Center recently welcomed Miwa Robbins, owner of Flow State Healing, to its facility. According to a press release, the center “continues to grow and provide valuable holistic health services to Daniel Island and Greater Charleston area residents.”

Robbins offers integrative bodywork and coaching services, using Thai Yoga Bodywork as her foundation to help clients find balance in their bodies, minds and spirits. Thai Bodywork is a form of clothes-on massage that is done on a mat on the floor and uses pressure points and meridian lines as well as movement to help clients find ease in their bodies.

“Some people call it the lazy person’s yoga,” stated the release. “But although flexibility and mobility often increases with Thai bodywork, it is doing much more than just stretching. By using an ancient and complex system of energy lines and acupressure points from the Ayurvedic tradition, Thai bodywork is also very much working on the energetic level, helping to clear energy blockages in the mind, body, and spirit level.”

The Healing Arts Center, located at 480 Jessen Lane, will also be offering an event, “Exploring The Healing Arts,” on Monday, Dec. 3, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., where Robbins and other practitioners will be sharing more about their services.
