Maya Ravensong is an Artist working in many different mediums. From dance, to writing, to paintings on canvas, silk and on the body, Maya creates healing art for herself and others.

Maya's art is a mix of strange, beautiful, sometimes humorous or wyrd forms- all of which can bring healing. She paints mostly with her fingers, though she does use other tools as well. She sometimes uses a magnifying glass to get into such small detail that, to some, it would seem pointless- but her, is completely the point. Maya has published one book “BodyArt Therapy” and is currently working on a tome where she explains how to become one with the divine and heal through dance.

Maya attends different events throughout the year. You can find a list of those events here

The session lasts for 1 to 2 hours. With a 1 hour session you receive a 1/2 hour massage and 1/2 hour of BodyArt Therapy. With a 1 and a 1/2 to two hour session you receive a mix of bodywork and bodyart for the length of the session. The mix depends on the complexity of the pattern chosen, how much bodywork you want and so on. I consult with the you on your goals and what design aspects you prefer and general placement of the bodyart. After the massage, I apply the bodyart in accordance with the bodywork treatment and the consult. The result is often stunning to look at and healing.

BAT leg

BAT (BodyArt Therapy) is more about the Art on the body- than the medium used (henna, indigo, body paints etc). But it is not only about art on the body. Anyone can put patterns on people to help them heal, but that it not BodyArt Therapy because, you still have to be some kind of bodyworker or health practitioner of some type to be able to assess the tissues, structures, and fascia of the body to determine where the restrictions, patterns of holding, “splinting”, or bundles/adhesions are and how best to address them.

Dr. Masaru Emoto has researched the effect of thoughts on water and the results are amazing. He took water from many sources, polluted lakes, rivers and from pristine areas as well. He then played music, taped paper with words on the containers of water, prayed over the water and talked lovingly to the water. Then he took water from those containers, froze the droplets and used a high powered microscope/camera to take pictures of the frozen water. His books “Messages from Water 1” (1999), “Messages from Water 2” (2002), “Messages from Water 3” (2004), and “Messages from Water 4” (2008) (All of them are published from Hado Kyoiku-Sha) document this. Every method of conveying thoughts into the water showed physical changes in the shape of the water crystal.

I bring this to your attention, because that is how BAT (BodyArt therapy) works. Dr. Emoto also took water and said ugly, demeaning and hurtful words to it or taped them to the bottle. The following is a sketch done of one of those photos where he had said “I hate you, you disgust me” to the water.

Now look at this sketch of a photo of cancer cells magnified 600x

How eerily similar they are.

Dr. Emoto’s work shows that the words you paint on the body have a significant probability of causing physical change. We are mostly water after all.

You can use the design as a focus for energy work or for meditation to create a more balanced state.


One of the most therapeutic concepts to evolve out of temporary art on the body is that it is wonderful for cancer patients. Those people who have or are about to lose their hair can regain their confidence and feeling "beautiful" again. There is no reason to hide under a scarf when your crown truly is a work of art.

In times past, henna was the medium of choice but that can sometimes interfere with chemo, radiation or is simply not a good choice. Now there are several mediums for BodyArt Therapy, some of which is safe during cancer treatments.

Of course if you are allergic to anything please let me know.

There are many interesting research papers and studies ongoing about the helpfulness of Henna and cancer- check them out and see for yourself.
