What Is this Book about?

This book is a practical guide and companion to teaching Traditional Thai Massage, based on my personal teaching experiences in various countries across the world.

I take an in-depth look at the different aspects of teaching Thai Massage: the teacher training, the teacher, the students, and the classes.

The book is aimed at Thai Massage students and therapists who want to start teaching Thai Massage, but it also serves as a healthy reflection for already active Thai Massage teachers.

This book is not a training course or workshop but aims at providing you with a comprehensive understanding of the topic presented.
