Krishna Bhattacharyya

Bio
Hi, I'm Krishna & I have been a licensed & practicing massage therapist for over 9 years.

I am Caucasian/Indian by culture, lived in Brazil for 6 years. Brazilians are very relaxed people who live mostly by the ocean. After moving here and discovering how stressed people are, I decided to pursue a career in massage therapy.

I have worked at spas, hotels, homes, bed and breakfasts, and fitness centers. I currently practice from my home office in beautiful South Austin.

I do my best to provide you with a very peaceful, clean, professional environment in which you can take a deep breath, relax and unwind.

My Skills

Swedish Massage

Category: Therapy
Description
First,we can discuss what areas of your body (or your life) are bothering you. From there I will leave you in privacy so that you can undress and then get on the table, covered with a towel, starting face up or down, you choose. There will be warm towels around your feet (optional). There will be candlelight and soft soothing music, and warm hands starting on your back, first gently, then gradually firmer. I combine elements of Thai massage which involve some stretching, only to your level of comfort. I will use organic cold-pressed coconut oil or other professional grade massage oil (or cream), in small amounts and only as necessary. During a one-hour session, I will spend approximately 15 minutes on your back, 15 on your legs, 15 on the upper torso, arms and abdomen, and 15 on the lower front legs, thighs and feet, eventually connecting the whole body with long, flowing esalen strokes. My massage is thorough, but not erotic. After the massage, you may shower if you like.



Prices are as follows:

60 minutes - $70

90 minutes - $95

For hot stones add $15.

Couple massages:
60 minutes - $120
90 minutes - $170

Couples massage include:

complimentary wine or fruit/cheese.

Thai -Shiatsu Massage

Category: Services
Description
This type of bodywork, having evolved from centuries of wisdom from Thailand, is done without oil or cream. Thai is done on a lowered table. I will at times be on the table with you, using downward compressions on the muscles. Some walking on the lower legs. De-compression of joints, by pulling gently on limbs. A very rejuvenating session. Shiatsu, which is similar to Thai, is done on an Isan Thai cushion. I will massage and stretch you more deeply. Main difference is you will be on a cushion on the floor instead of a table. 60 or 90 minutes. Very relaxing!
