Yoga Practitioners: TM & Yoga have a direct relationship to each other. TM contains the aspect of applied Hatha Yoga. It will give Yoga teachers more confidence in adjusting their students.
Doctors of TCM: TM adds the dynamic of stretching in addition to acupressure for another hands on technique to manipulating the Qi.
Shiatsu Practitioners: TM adds to their set of techniques, giving more variety and alternatives to working the meridian lines. The Fundamentals of Thai Massage program is accredited with the STA for continuing education credits.
RMTs: TM offers techniques and structure quite different from the table work. It adds to the repertoire, with new stretches and channel work and abdomen protocol. Some techniques can be done on the table. CEU's are available.
Holistic Nurses or Doctors: TM shows another way of working with the body, teaching new hands-on healing methods. This provides a greater understanding of alternative healing practices which may provide for a private practice or confidence in referral to other practitioners.
Meditators: TM expands meditation into motion. It affirms the divine states of mind through selfless compassion, non-judgement, kindness, acceptance, sympathetic joyfulness and equanimity for all situations and people.
Martial Artists: TM is another inner adventure to balance.

This is just to tell you Kristin, how much I enjoyed your teaching of the intro course. Your gentle and kind heart was truly felt during these 6 days. I am now feeling a lot better and much freer of the lower back pain. I will continue Thai massage development from now on!
Kristin, you introduced me to Thai massage and have catalyzed so much growth and thank you. Your generosity and laughter, combine with your knowledge and you are a gifted teacher & friend. I look forward to learning more. Love always sweet sage.
My purpose at first was to help others heal. Now all I can think about is healing myself, my energy. I am in the right direction and you have helped me on the way. You made me realize that I only need to think of self love and by having that intention, I will be able to help others. I thank you with all my heart.
