An innovative approach to an ancient art
Sensible Thai Bodywork is based on the style developed by Ajahn Pichest, one of the foremost masters of Thai Massage. After suffering overuse injury from doing “hard” massage, Ajahn Pichest began his quest to create a style of massage which benefits both the recipient and the therapist. The result is a uniquely powerful bodywork style which focuses on ease, body awareness, & lack of tension for the practitioner and good feeling for the recipient.
Thaibodywork.eu combines Ajahn Pichest’s massage style with modern teaching techniques and a deep understanding of the latest advancements in pain science.
One of Ajahn Pichest’s favorite sayings is “Power like an elephant, touch like an ant.” By using our bodies wisely and listening to our clients’ bodies, we can exert minimal effort to achieve extremely strong results. By using our body’s weight and our clients’ structure, we can give a deep massage with no muscular or mental tension. This enables the practitioner to work a full day without fatigue or injury. In Therapeutic Thai Bodywork training, rather than teach set techniques, we teach principles that enable you to develop your own unique style that works for your body and can be adapted for different clients.

Why small classes with an individual teacher?
Class size at Thaibodywork.eu is capped at 4 people. This allows one on one, individualized instruction with every person in the class. Bodywork is best taught by touch, not words, and this is the way Thai massage has traditionally been taught. Every person in the group will have the chance to feel the teacher’s contact and to receive direct feedback from the teacher. Larger schools simply aren’t able to provide this kind of instruction – they depend on filling large classes and therefore provide more standardized training centered on techniques.
