I love watching Thierry Bienfaisant in the flow. His style is a great example of dynamic Thai massage and you can just feel the benefits on the receivers body by watching. Thierry and many other practitioners today have been influenced by Chaiyuth Priyasith a very special man from a family of Thai massage therapists.
I write this early February post with grateful reverence to Chaiyuth Priyasith, a Thai massage master from Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. I feel more and more how his energy is influencing me in my own practice.
Chaiyuth is sadly no longer with us (he died while dancing in 2005). He touched many of us with his smile, small massage room, whirring fan to keep off mosquitos and post massage coffee and optional cigarette.
