Hillary Hilliard, LMT

Hillary is one of the first practitioners in the Denver area to practice and promote the amazing healing arts of Thai Yoga Massage and Thai Herbal Compresses. Hillary has had extensive training in Thailand, and her practice and teaching draws mainly from the Northern (Chiang Mai) style. She founded Textured Motion seven years ago. She is a Registered Massage Therapist in Colorado, a Registered Thai Therapist, and a Registered Yoga Therapist. Her studies have been unique because she has chosen to study with many, different schools in Thailand. She has created the “Textured Motion” style of Thai Massage, by gathering all of her training and knowledge into one style that really speaks to our generation and to the society with which we live. Hillary began to teach eight years ago because she wanted to share her knowledge and experience with others. Hillary has taken her knowledge of Thai massage and the Thai culture and made it more accessible and available for the American student, i.e. bringing in anatomy awareness, medical terminology, and answering the “Whys”.
