Nicole and Heath have been visiting Thailand since 2001, and have cultivated a treasure-trove of local contacts to help Westerners connect with a truly authentic Thai cultural and healing experience. Some of our friends that you’ll be sharing time with are:
Teachers at the Old Medicine Hospital- This is the oldest traditional Thai Medical Learning Center in northern Thailand, where Heath and Nicole first studied Thai Massage. Taught by proteges following the great Master Sintorn Chaichakan’s lineage, students receive a thorough grounding in the theory and application of traditional Thai Massage. We will practice and receive traditional Thai massage, stretching, and reflexology therapies to balance the physical and energetic body, heal pain, and feel good from the inside, out.
Blind Thai Massage Practitioners- It is common in many Asian countries to train blind citizens to become massage therapists. All participants on this retreat will receive a Thai Massage session from a Blind Thai Massage therapist (you may schedule more sessions for added charge). This is an unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience, harnessing empathy and loving compassion for both giver and receiver.
To ensure the quality of our time together, this retreat is limited to a total of 14 participants.
Participants do not have to have any previous massage experience.
