Meet Richard Neuman
Ricardo has been involved in the Wellness and Holistic Health fields since the 1970’s. Originally from California, he studied Asian therapies and philosophies before moving to Hawaii in the 1980’s, working as a massage therapist and educator.
Therapy and management experiences there included clinical settings, day spas, and exclusive resorts. After completing a degree in Human Nutrition at the University of Hawaii he worked as a community health educator and taught at the Kauai Academy of the Healing Arts as well as the University of Hawaii (non credit classes).
Since relocation to Thailand in 2005 he has worked with Asian Wellness and Spa businesses with an emphasis on training and staff development. Currently based in Koh Samui. He is been offering his massage therapy services at Samahita Retreat since 2007.
I have practiced massage professionally since 1984. Over the years I have studied and practiced Namakoshi Shiatsu, Swedish Esalen Massage, Hot Stone massage, various sports and therapeutic massage techniques, Temple Style Lomi Lomi massage, and Cranial Sacral Therapy among others. Currently in my private practice I mostly work with connective tissue release, energetic balancing, and BodyReading.
In years past, Samahita Retreat guests have found benefits for such needs as:
- Repetitive Strain Syndrome (RSI)
- Range of Motion problems from old or new injuries
- Less flexibility on one side of the body
- Deep muscle tightness
- Head or face trauma
- Energetic blocks
Deep Tissue Massage is a penetrating manual technique that is applied directly on individual muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fibers. Deep Tissue Massage focuses on the deeper layers of tissue and releases chronic tension through direct slow deep pressure on contracted areas. It “unsticks” the fibers of fascia, muscle, connective tissue, and viscera, while releasing deeply-held emotional patterns, and toxins, while relaxing and soothing the muscle. It is both corrective and therapeutic.
