Marloas is two years of age and she comes out of Rotterdam in Holland. She is in gap from school, and it has brought the opportunity to travel in Asia. She has been on the road for four weeks and as the trip winds to a close she has come into the Health Oasis Resort at Koh Samui to learn Thai massage.
“This really is only one of the better ssru things I did in my adventure,’ she enthuses. “While I was traveling I had massages. It felt really nice I decided I’d love to learn how to do it”
“It is just for pleasure. I’ve learned it and to help my close friends and family.”
No, she does not need to become a massage therapist. Her aim is to train as a medical doctor, and this preparation in massage could well help her into her own aspiration to study western medication.
Her twenty-hour course stretched over a leisurely five 5 days. She has plenty of time to get relaxation and rest in the swimming pool and on the shore beside. She laughs when she says,”I enjoyed that the rest!”
“I also really liked the Course with Thai instructor Nan.”
Nan, by how started her studies at the esteemed Wat Pho in Bangkok which serves as the premier massage teaching center in Thailand.
“She really gets the students to practice alot. Says the young Dutch student.
“She instructed me to employ my whole body for generating the massage strokes”
Marloas explains she was always fearful that her hands would become tired whilst massagingbut she had been amazed to find that instead she felt energised.
“I now know the pressure things and also understand just how to get people curl up.”
The path that Marloas attended isn’t designed to turn out professional therapists. It is certificated but is created for Self Development and basic interest. For those eager to know Thai massage for expert use, Health Oasis Resort provides a more intensive fifty hour period of instruction, and this too comes with a certification.
Massage is only one of several subjects that visitors could learn at the Bang Po beach side resort. Other issues include Thai Cookery, Reiki, Meditation and EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique. The Thai cooking is more interesting as it’s geared very much to the visitor to the Kingdom. Lots of people have enjoyed eating Thai food in restaurants worldwide and on arriving at Thailand have taken the experience to another dimension. What Health Oasis encourages is always to teach visitors how to cook their favourite dishes. Naturally this needs a little note as the instructors need to goto the market and buy the freshest ingredients possible so the’trainee chef’ can prepare that meal that is favored. Once you have cooked it, all you then have is the joy of sitting down and eating your own invention and hopefully you have invited some friends or family members to talk about this unique encounter with you.
