We are Brain and Body Recess experts in health specializing in corporate wellness programs and individual massage services. Finally, you have found wellness that works for you.

Brain and Body Recess co-owners, Dr. John & Parnisia Thomas have a unique gift of touch that transcends the mind, body, and spirit.  Together, the couple has 35 years of hands-on healing experience and continues to be sought-after by many well-known celebrities, professional athletes, and influencers worldwide.

When you find wellness that works, you tend to stick with it. At least that is the case here, as the accolades, positive reviews, and client testimonials pile up year after year for these two leaders in the alternative healthcare arena.

Over the years, these holistic health care providers often step in when other practitioners fail to help people not only avoid surgery but also to live pain-free. They specialize in improving or eliminating stubborn debilitating conditions that do not respond well to opioids, muscle relaxers, physical therapy, or other conventional modalities. 

Parnisia specializes in energy work, limbic decoding, and massage therapy including couples massage instruction, pregnancy massage, lymphatic drainage, and polarity therapy.  Services offered include Limbic Hacking, Reiki, Visceral Manipulation, Fascial Release, and Mindfulness Meditation.

She is known as “The Limbic Hacker,” is a Board Certified Sports Massage Therapist, Holistic Bodyworker, Muscle Stripping, and Wellness Expert, Parnisia enjoys improving the vitality of her clients through increased body-awareness and self-care. Parnisia says that most of her clients have chaotic lifestyles. What brings her joy is being able to be a positive outlet and to provide lasting solutions to help her clients find balance in the chaos.

Parnisia Thomas is a gifted integrated massage expert. For years, she has been seamlessly combining massage techniques with energy healing for her clients. Taking her integrated massage techniques to another level, Parnisia has developed something new. It is unlike anything else. The technique is Limbic Hacking and Parnisia is known as the Limbic Hacker. This is considered a Coaching Service as it requires the client and Parnisia to work together focused on resetting the brain link to the body, decrease pain and increase capacity. This is done by decoding negative emotions, events, conditions, and past regrets through a series of assessments, holistic bodywork, exercises, affirmations, meditations, mindfulness techniques and more. Limbic Hacking can connect the mind, body, spirit, and soul in ways most people will never experience in their lifetime.

Having worked in the medical field for over twenty years, Parnisia appreciates the importance of alternative healing as a complementary therapy. Parnisia has obtained well over 1500 hours in training and continuing education. As an expert in her field, Parnisia Thomas has taught Massage Therapy in both college and private workshop settings for many years. Parnisia specializes in Sports Massage, Dr. Thomas’ Muscle Stripping Protocol, the Daucik Method, Postural Retraining, Fertility Massage, Reiki, Lymphatic Drainage, Limbic Hacking and Relaxation.

Parnisia spends much of her time involved in causes and activities that empower girls and young women. Through her dedication to this cause, she decided to develop her own organization. Her non-profit (High Heal International),  in the planning stages now, empowers girls and women by increasing their self-esteem, enhancing life skills, spiritual formation and self-sufficiency through financial mentorship and technology training.

Parnisia is a foodie that enjoys her yoga practice, and kickboxing. Parnisia said, “I always feel blessed to be able to gift others with the gift of self-care and touch.”

Parnisia collaborated with “ The Running Doctor” Dr. John Thomas, D.C., on the innovative technique widely known as “Dr. Thomas’ Muscle Stripping Protocol.” This deep tissue manual therapy breaks up adhesions (scar tissue) in the muscle fiber and has rehabilitated professional golfers and instructors, Olympic Runners, NFL, and NBA Players, Triathletes, along with Cyclists and Marathon Runners.
