I am really excited to have access to the Basic Thai Massage Course material on-line. I participated in this course in person at the Thai Institute of Healing Arts in November 2016, and got so much out of it. I am a massage therapist living in Moab, UT, and have incorporated the Basic Thai Massage routine into my practice offerings, and it has been really well received. I am looking forward to reviewing and learning more through this on-line course, so that I can make sure that I am applying the right techniques to clients, and using proper body mechanics for myself. It will be so helpful to have access to the content anytime in order to keep the knowledge fresh. Thank you!

Hi Kristine

Siddiqa and I excited to share our congratulations and support in your continued endeavors to awaken others to the culture and medicine of the Thai people. As a fellow humble student in the Shivagakomarpaj lineage that has bounced in and out of my practice since my first "hands on" coarse at OMH years ago; I'm in gratitude for your service in holding the torch for this knowledge to be shared. ~*~

I'm looking forward to using this online course to re-inspire my Thai practice by remembering the basics and using it as a model to keep me organized. I have not been practicing Thai massage as of late and this will be a good kick start to get me moving and thinking Thai again. I just got your email about the last day to register and next thing I know, I'm

Thanks again for your service. Siddiqa and I both look forward to catching up with you and wish you continued blessings.

In Gratitude,
Kristine Traucht
