We would lik5e to offer our respect and gratitude to our grandmother, NomKhunchamnan (1927 - 2008), our first Thai massage teacher. Our grandmother learned Thai massage from her mother, who learned it from her mother, and that is as far as family memory goes. She began studying massage when she was ten years old. She finished school at the age of thirteen and shortly thereafter she studied massage and midwifery at a local hospital,where she was certified as a therapist. Our grandmother was like a second mother to us and helped raise us as children. And among many scores of babies she delivered, she assisted at Amnat’s birth. We are very proud to continue her work and the work of many generations of our family.
