My Trip to Thailand

In January of 2009, I went to Thailand and studied Thai massage at the International Thai Massage School in Chiang Mai.

I spent two and a half weeks there and learned basic to advanced techniques. I studied and lived with students from all over the world and formed amazing bonds. Falling in love with the culture, the spicy foods, beautiful landscapes and of course the adventure of it all so much I decided to go back.

In November of 2011 I made it back to Thailand and went back North to Chiang Mai and studied with Pischet Boonthumme. I studied there for two weeks and again I can't wait to return. Pischet teaches you to really feel and listen to the body, to get out of our minds, and to be a therapist without putting strain on our bodies. After an eye opening experience with Pischet I went to study for one week at MTM. There I learned one on one with Ming a lovely fluid tradition style Thai massage with pressure points and stretches.

Thai is a wonderful massage to receive and to give. It has a rhythmic quality that soothes and relaxes the body. The rhythmic stretches with the breath and mindful pressure points for stress and pain relief are good for the nervous system, lymphatic system, and blood flow. People who receive Thai massage feel a connection with the therapist, relaxed, and energized all at the same time.
