Thai massage jam ® is a community bodywork and massage event I’ve hosted in Austin for four years. During that time we’ve seen thousands of people wander through our event and wonder what was going on. No one has ever seen anything like it. We meet at least once a week in Austin, Texas and […]
As my practice develops I continue to challenge myself to improve my craft. I couldn’t perform the highest quality bodywork in settings under someone else even medical ones. Every work environment I encountered had practices that prevented clients from receiving the best bodywork for their issues. Insurance will only allow an hour etc. To allow […]
We’re gearing up to start offering Phase classes of my Reboot ™ curriculum. Students and the public are asking questions and I hope to provide answers with some website changes and a plethora of videos that demonstrate what I’m teaching and why it’s so important for the public and massage therapists. When Reboot ™ is […]
Someone wrote me to ask what the difference was between these and I felt it’d be a good idea to write a post about it. I’m tied into this confusion myself and if you download my free Thai massage workbook you’ll notice something if you look very closely. The cover page says Thai yoga massage. […]

My whole practice has been helping people understand what I do. At its core I practice Nuad Boran. My practice is a mix of Thai massage, yoga, yoga therapy and 13 years of practice on myself and others. I can usually help other pain sufferers because I’ve worked through those same issues in my body […]
We show a reclined tree pose and how it opens the adductors of the hip. Table Thai Massage is extremely effective and simple to use and add into your massage routines. I cannot stress enough how much this will save your hands from excessive work. Download a copy of the Table Thai Workbook and get […]
Table Thai massage helps therapists use new tools. I tell students in class that much like a mechanic I want them to have a wall full of tools at their disposal and when someone comes in they use the ones most appropriate for the work they’re doing. This simple jostling shown is deceptively effective. Table […]
I spent 6 years in central Texas without ever receiving another Thai massage from a practitioner. I decided to teach because the work wasn’t available anywhere and the community desperately needed it. Along the way things have grown and changed, developed in ways that even I couldn’t have foreseen. Class this weekend in Houston will […]
Those are the famous words of an MBA student when I spoke with him years ago. As a struggling upstart that consists of a staff of one, I needed business help. A client referred me to someone who said they could chat with me about business to help me figure out how to improve things. When […]
