My family and I were on a holiday in the wonderful country of Thailand in mid-March.
We traveled from Bangkok to Chiang Mai and then to the very south to the island of Koh Lanta. The weather was high 30’s most days with brilliant sun.
What made it particularly memorable was that I had the opportunity to continue my education in the art of massage. I contacted the Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai which is internationally recognized by many organizations including the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, CMTO. I registered for the Thai Chair Massage course and spent time one on one with Dr. Futoshi Tsuyukubo who is a visiting teacher from Japan where he practices bone medicine. He is also one of the original graduates from the Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai.
The course covered many aspects of Thai massage with the main focus on performing back, shoulder, neck, head arms and hand massage on a massage chair or on a regular chair. The school was a highlight of my vacation and even more so, as I was able to have the full attention of Dr. Tsuyukubo.
I now look forward to putting some of the techniques learned into practice and of course for any of my clients who wish to sit they can now do so and benefit from my learnings in Thailand.
It was a great holiday, one of my family will always look back with fondness.
