Should I study Thai Yoga Massage or Thai Massage is an invalid question, because basically there’s no difference between the two modalities. In Thailand, the Thai just say “Thai Massage,” that is… “Nuad Thai” or “Nuad Boran” (Ancient Massage or Traditional Massage). The Thai people never themselves used the term “Thai Yoga Massag [ Read More... ]
A series of sayings, proverbs, and aphorisms about Thai Massage. The fact that something is done skillfully and efficiently doesn’t mean it can’t be done any better.

It takes time—for sure. But what a time it is. It’s not about fancy poses or new techniques. That’s all good, nice, and pe [ Read More... ]
Before we start a Thai Massage session we need always ask the receiver about his or her (mental, emotional, and physical) condition, his or her daily activities, work, hobbies, sports, and medical history.
