“When I arrived in Chiang Mai in January 1992, thai massage was not as popular as it is now days and the choises on where to learn this ancient healing art where restricted to few school and some old masters.
Students were spending long time at the schools or with their masters absorbing and digesting the knoledge received by practicing and practicing.”
