I’ve always had considerable doubts putting my clients’ feedback on the blog. It’s because I basically think of testimonials as too much of a brag—too often you’d only see a whole bunch of wonderful, exhilarating statements about the (effects of the) treatment and—about the “superstar” practitioner.

The past week was a big mess. In the last 7 days I had 6 appointment cancellations. Some clients cancelled until further notice and others rescheduled. Sh*t happens, but sometimes it stinks a little too much for my taste. Last Thursday, a client cancelled her appointment for the next day, Friday—because she had too much work to do.

And departure always gives me these awkward sensations—my chest feels heavy, my stomach turns and trembles, my throat chokes, and I basically feel like crying. You see, I have this strange love-hate relationship with Thailand. There are moments I just can’t stand it [ Read More... ]
At first I didn’t believe it. Thought it was just bull. Crap. You see, I once had this Thai Massage course in Chiang Mai, where a teacher explained to the group that “release” comes with red skin and heat. As I am the skeptical type, I was merely like: “Okay, if you rub long enough, the skin becomes red and hot, doesn’ [ Read More... ]
