Valentina Gombi is a very passionate and experienced teacher who has spent many months in Thailand studying with different Masters. Thanks to the overall knowledge accumulated through years of teaching and massaging, personal practices, injuries and other therapies Valentina has been able to break down each Thai massage exercise and create a unique training manual full of precise instructions, exact pictures, detailed drawings, charts and anatomical and therapeutic references, which make extremely easy to understand, study and remember the sequence once back home. A DVD of the complete 3.5 hrs sequence will help the more visual ones.
