Chawiwan (Wan) is our chief practitioner. She is Thai and she grew up surrounded by this ancient art. Because of her interest in healing, Wan was inspired to learn more about the techniques and benefits of Thai massage therapy. She trained at the world-renowned Wat Pho Thai Traditional Massage and Medical School in Bangkok. Before coming to Bristol, Wan spent three years honing her art at ‘Thai Fit’, one of Prague’s foremost traditional Thai massage businesses. Her intuitive deft touch and the all-round high standard of her massage did much to enhance the reputation and subsequent expansion of the business. Such is Wan’s love for Thai massage and its all-round beneficial effect, she has one daily whenever possible.
Before and after her daily work, Wan says the old Buddhist pali prayers to ask Jivaka Kumar Baccha, ‘the father of Thai massage’, for guidance in treating everyone and wishing them health and happiness.
