Kinetic Thai Bodywork

Fabrizio Sonny LeNoir of Kinetic Thai Bodywork will be joining us again this year for the Chicago Mini Tango Festival 2016! He will be available all weekend to relieve any aches and pains so you can take full advantage of all the festival has to offer.

Fabrizio is an Asian Bodywork Therapist that has a firm understanding of caring for those with stress and pain. He utilizes time honored Thai massage techniques together with practical experience in bodywork from his martial arts background to bring consistent relief from acute and chronic pain. Thai bodywork sessions are relaxing, highly therapeutic and focused on results. A session is typically done in loose fitting sports wear that allows for movement which means usually dance wear is ok for a session.

His booth will be located in the registration area and also available for private sessions.

Please contact Fabrizio directly at (773) 719-9193 if you have a specific question or if you would like to reserve session time.
