Ajahn Luampo (1949 - 2013) devoted his life to Traditional Thai medicine since the age of 15 and began his monastic life at the age of 37 years. He became a so-called "wandering monk" and roamed the forests of Thailand to meditate and he survived on what the forest had to offer.

In those years, his interest about medicinal plants grew steadily. He kept on traveling throughout his life, learning with different therapists and healers across Thailand and created his own working technique, visiting many temples helping out needy monks.

He acquired a great reputation and gradually Luampo became one of the most important monk therapists in Thailand. Luampo combined Thai traditional massage with techniques from the healers of the northern hiil-tribes, adding his own creations developed through deep meditation and experiences.

Ajahn Luampo used hands, feet and a wooden stick specifically designed by him, to treat specific points on the body. Using this combination of techniques allowed him to work for hours with many patients without exhausting himself physically achieving great healing results.
