before I left Chiang Mai I took some photographs for my Thai Massage Teachers Somwang Khachenniam & Kea Metawarin Kap. This is one of my favourites from the few closeups that I shot that day.

Incredible teachers & thai massage practitioners.

about my teacher Somwang Khachenniam

31 Jan

This morning I learnt that Somwang Khachenniam and Kea Meta Kap together with a team are opening their own Thai Massage Spa & hopefully school below the South-East corner of the Chiang Mai old city moat.

I will share with you a google map address as soon as I have it confirmed.

In the meantime if you are looking for my incredible teacher then please get in touch with me and I will help you find this outstanding team! I do not make recommendations lightly: these are some of the very best teachers and very best practitioners of Thai Massage that you will ever find.

My Thai Massage study and practice history

1 Jun

JANUARY – APRIL 2015

I was in Thailand continuing my Thai Massage Training as well as the online Theory Program, additionally I photographed a lot and eventually learnt my first Tok Sen techniques from a very good teacher. (I’ll tell you about this in person, in short: Tok Sen is a vibrational therapy, very useful in releasing very tight muscles prior to a Thai Massage treatment.)

MARCH 2013

4 weeks study trip to my school in Chiang Mai

APRIL – MAY 2012

5 weeks study trip to my school in Chiang Mai

OCTOBER – JANUARY 2011 – 2012

Started learning Traditional Thai Massage (with my partner Jason) at the Chetawan Wat Po school in Chiang Mai, with a student to teacher ration of:  1-2 teachers per student! (This was possible as there were very few tourists in Thailand due t the nationwide serious flooding) We were extraordinarily lucky getting this level of attention for our first 3 months of study. The head teacher of the school is outstanding and became my teacher until today (2015)!

announcement: Artist vs Holistic Professional

4 Aug

Dear friends:

just in case you are a little confused if you know me only as a full time artists. I’ve decided that for better balance in life I would like to contribute more to my own as well as other’s wellbeing and sense of balance. I remain adamant to exhibit in Venice at the most glorious Art Biennale there is, rather sooner than later, I continue to make art and take it professionally serious.

But Health is a gift that I would like to remind everyone to value. And I would like to support friends and strangers as they become my students and clients in finding their best balance. 

I choose to earn my living not with bar/cafe work or selling items that clutter our beautiful and fragile planet but instead with something that I see as a gift to our health. A gift that leaves no trace other than a sense of wellbeing, improved immune system, greater flexibility, better focus of mind, better sleep…. (endless benefits).. I wonder if you understand this. I would like to invite you to book a treatment with me before the end of august as I have some plans that may take me out of Liverpool (art plans). In january I might teach in Cambodia, which would mean that I will continue bodywork training in Thailand straight after. Which would in turn mean that your next chance of a treatment will be around february/march, at potentially increased cost unless you are an existing client… Don’t leave your body hanging, take the opportunity now. Looking forward to seeing you for Massage or Yoga. (if you really want to you can also massage your brain: I still teach German language)
