The Website

Our Monkey Mascot provides comprehensive information about traditional massage and bodywork modalities, trainers and treatment providers in Asia and in other countries around the world.

Our specialties are Thai Massage, the Thai Healing Arts, and massage training in Thailand, but over time we’ve significantly grown in covering other countries and other massage and bodywork topics also, such as genital, abdominal, and Tantric massages and bodywork.


Massage and bodywork service providers are welcome to send us their training or treatment center info. Registration with us is for free. On our Terms & Conditions page, under the section Info Disclaimers, you’ll find more info about the registration process and the way we work.


We write and publish eBooks, which aim at providing all-inclusive resources about massage and bodywork treatment modalities, about trainers, and about learning or practitioning traditional healing arts.


We post articles about the complementary, alternative and traditional healing arts, and about treatments, trainers and training courses in Asia and in a variety of other countries in the rest of the world.

In our Topics section we’ve grouped together our posts into categories to make it easier for our readers to find the articles they’re interested in.


In our Countries section we’ve categorized articles about traditional massage and bodywork modalities, training and treatment providers grouped by individual countries.


We also write reviews, which are geared to giving objective information about traditional healing arts schools, teachers, or related organizations.


The website is operated by Helissa Grundemann and Marce Ferreira.


Helissa, co-founder of the website, has a collection of photographs and digital art pieces of the beautiful Buddhist Temple Wat Pho in Bangkok, of Thailand, and of other countries, available to be purchased.

We work with Redbubble, a “print on demand” service, which offers great images from artists around the world that can be printed on a variety of products. You can buy mugs, throw pillows, wall art with different sizes and framing, and many other products with the picture of your choice.

Additionally, you may also follow Helissa’s work on Instagram, or if you’d like to illustrate your blog, website or magazine with some nice images (not only about Thailand), purchase her pictures on Shutterstock, Adobe Stock or Alamy.
