Moving Forward and Forging Ahead

With the change of seasons I am looking forward to continually forging ahead to new and exciting collaborations and developments in the near future.

Being the leaders in the industry we must keep reinventing ourselves and take the risk to do something different all while offering the same quality trainings and adjusting to challenge ourselves to always do better and be better.

With your help we are building a stronger community to bring Thai Massage to another level. Together we can do anything!

We are bringing Lomilomi to Winnipeg with this NHPC Educational Workshop! Don't miss this chance to take this level 1 course with Sukha Wong.

The Hawaiians believe that Lomilomi helps release the blockages in the body giving energy new direction and looking at all things in terms of energy flow. Lomilomi is not just a physical experience; it also facilitates healing on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels as well. Much of this work is done by loving compassion using loving hands and an open heart. Learn this ancient form of Hawaiian massage that covers broad areas of the body using long continual strokes incorporating prayer, breath, dance and energy into this Lomilomi massage.

One of the country’s most unusual festivals is the annual Monkey Buffet, held in front of the Pra Prang Sam Yot temple in Lopburi province. More than 600 monkeys are invited to feast on over two tonnes of grilled sausage, fresh fruit, ice cream and other treats.
