A unique training program for Massage Therapists, Bodyworkers, Yoga Teachers and anyone Interested in Health, Wellbeing and Transformation.

The Alchemy of Touch Bodywork Academy introduces students to our completely unique form of massage & healing.

These trainings offer students an alchemy of techniques gathered & mastered by Tapesh Paradiso over decades of study & professional experience in both Eastern & Western lineages of healing. His work is accentuated by the presence of Anouk Devi, who brings her own flavor of mastery to this practice, and who offers ongoing anatomical clarification to compliment these distinct techniques.

For over 10 years, Alchemy of Touch has been operating globally, educating both beginners & advanced practitioners in the art of touch. Our holistic practice is infused with deep meditative intuition as we penetrate the mechanics of bodywork and take students into the heart of healing.

The Alchemy of Touch Massage Academy is an Accredited Training Provider by IPHM, International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine.


The experience is one of freedom from pain and emotional awareness and a deeper realization of oneself. Throughout the training there will be emphasis on meditation, teaching a space of mindfulness and presence when working with people.

Alchemy of Touch is a method of bodywork developed by Tapesh F. Paradiso. It is designed to elevate massage and bodywork to a new level, using different techniques from the Eastern and Western world into a single harmonized approach. The origin comes from Osho Rebalancing Massage where Tapesh retouched and improved this professional technique into a less static, more artistic and poetic way, working without any effort!


The profound fusion of:

  • Myofascial Chi-Release
  • Rebalancing
  • Deep Tissue Massage in Motion
  • Joint Mobilization (Trager Technique)
  • Yoga Thai Stretches
  • Digital Pressure Massage
  • Holistic Massage
  • Visceral Work
  • Meditation
  • Energy Work
  • These techniques will be integrated with Tapesh his own innovative method; ‘Fluid Touch’. This technique uses wavelike movements, which allows energy to vibrate through the body improving fluidity and oxygen flow.

Maintaining the holistic understanding of the interconnectedness of the body, mind and soul, Tapesh has studied and practiced each of these modalities in detail. Over decades of experimentation, he has adopted and reshaped the most effective methods from each of these schools.

This profound fusion facilitates the release of tension by focusing on the Myo-fascia in order to unwind physical imbalances and open subtle energetic channels – restoring the body and mind to a state of harmony and deep relaxation.

Unique to Alchemy of Touch is Tapesh own innovative method – ‘Fluid Touch’. This technique uses wavelike movements, which allows energy to vibrate through the body improving fluidity and oxygen flow, dispersing sensation and giving the client what can only be described as a really “yummy” experience, even when combined with deep pressure that might otherwise be experienced as painful. This signature technique is what really sets Alchemy of Touch apart. Our approach is to keep our receiver on the pleasure-pain border. From here depth may be reached through a non-violent approach. Similarly, we believe that the physical comfort of the practitioner is paramount, and our students are guided to notice when they operate from force and to “do by non-doing” which transmits their own feeling of deep relaxation and meditative presence to their client.

After 20 years of bodywork, Tapesh remains inspired through his natural tendency for playfulness, innovation and meditation. He teaches how to deliver his strokes with precision and detail, and then encourages his students to let go of the sequence and let the work flow through with spontaneity and artistry, as if the body were an instrument and the practice were a symphony. Guided by the teachings of the spiritual master Osho, Tapesh aims to break the limiting patterns of movement within the body and mind of his clients. He teaches how to flow between different strokes, stretches and fluid touch methods, demonstrating how to change tempo, depth and technique to give the receiver an experience which is textured and which leads them through a journey into deep presence. It is only when both the giver and receiver are completely present that the space opens for true healing to arise.


Who is Alchemy of Touch for?

Massage Therapists, Bodyworkers, Yoga Teachers and anyone Interested in Health, Wellbeing and Transformation.

We are proud to transmit Alchemy of Touch Bodywork Trainings with the kind of direct simplicity that makes this work accessible to total beginners who are at the start of their healing journey, yet, our approach is so different that it carries the potential to revolutionize the work of Advanced Massage Therapists. Healers of any modality wishing to expand their professional or personal skills are highly encouraged to apply.

The increasing global movement of Yoga & other embodied practices demands the integration of conscious bodywork in order to progress toward a truly holistic transformational movement.
We teach with joy, humor & playfulness and we love to laugh. We are passionate about what we do and we like to keep the vibration high. We sometimes take dance-breaks in between sessions and encourage our students to let go and be truly themselves. We come to share our teachings, but we also love just to be immersed in this transformational space with others who are on the same path of bodywork & healing. In each group, a spontaneous connection unfolds between us all and we become a big family, learning within an intimate and loving environment.
