Studying in Thailand is a vibrant, inspiring blend of traditional healing therapies, harmonious chanting, warm and friendly people, spicy food, meditative practice, temples, incense and a sense of community with practitioners from all over the world. With Paul’s support and caring guidance, we were invited into the homes, clinics and classrooms of master teachers and gifted healers. In Chiang Mai, we learned daily how one might weave together a physical practice with honest self exploration, appreciation for emotional well being and respect for Buddhist precepts and ancient traditions. Yes, we did expand our skill and technique but even more meaningful was the opportunity to cultivate empathy, keep a sense of humor and nourish our confidence in an environment where Thai bodywork, kindness and meditation are a part of the indigenous cultural and historical fabric.
“This experience was unlike any other. It was a great adventure full of love and discovery. it has left me with an open heart that is overflowing with love. I am so grateful to have this trip in my soul, it was truly amazing and life changing. The food was incredible too!”
The Thailand trip is a very eye opening experience. Getting to know the culture and background that this style of massage gives great insight into the practice itself. Paul has also set up a wonderful variety of amazing teachers to experience on the trip, who have each their own style and approach. Plus the food is delicious!
I have traveled to many countries including Thailand as a tourist and enjoyed myself enormously. However my trip with Blue Lotus to Thailand was one of the best, I got to learn spiritual and healing traditions of this country and to see things from different prospective. Also I am not sure you can be a good Thai massage therapist without this trip. This trip was a perfect combination of learning and relaxation and a perfect setting for various travel experiences. Thank you Blue Lotus for making this trip unforgettable.
I came into the Thailand Adventure with very little background in Thai Massage. Blue Lotus was able to connect me with a great school and great teachers. I am a massage therapist by trade, and the techniques and philosophy I learned in Thailand will certainly affect my practice forever.
Not only did I learn a valuable practice, but I learned a lot about myself. I believe it’s invaluable to be immersed in new cultures. The people I met and experiences I had will stay with me always. Keep an open mind and an open heart. I can not recommend this program enough.
Any ideas I had about Thailand did not prepare me for the awe-inspiring adventure that I experienced. Paul F. showed us local Thai culture and introduced us to amazing healers that I would never have experienced without his guidance. Paul’s Thailand adventure enhanced my learning and introduced me to a healing bodywork community abroad, and here at home.
