Happy 2012 everyone! I hope that you all have absolutely wonderful years ahead of you.
I am back from vacation and newly refreshed. I hope that my new hands can be of service to you in the near future. Now that my annual vacation is out of the way, my clinic should have regular hours for the rest of the year, so feel free to call, email or text to book an appointment.
Massage in Myanmar & Thailand
You can have a look at an example of Burmese massage here. Burmese massage is very similar to Thai massage using comparable energy lines and chiropractic style adjustments.
In Thailand, I studied for one week with Ajarn Sinchai, a master of Thai massage with 40 years of experience and his own unique style of Thai massage. You can see videos and read about him here. I first met him in 2010 when I sought him out after tearing my rotator cuff. In just one treatment he had restored the shoulder to 90% range of motion. When I saw him this year, he still had the old magic. In the classes there was a student who was tired of the stress and physical pain he was enduring from work and had sold his company and decided to start a new life. Every day in class as we all practised on each other, this man would see drastic immediate improvements in his health. He would often remark “I haven’t been able to do that in years!”. Sinchai’s approach looks incredibly simple at first glance but is very powerful. I hope I can offer you a taste of his work.
Myanmar is a truly beautiful country: A land that time forgot. It has only recently begun to open its doors offering us a chance to see a different view of humanity.
Here are some of my favourite photos from the trip. I hope you will enjoy them too.
