I was talking with my wife about Thai massage. She is in massage school currently and studying Asian massage modalities. Two things she shared with me.

1) Thai massage is the lazy mans yoga. No wonder I am so interested in it.
2) She said there are very few actual Thai Massage Therapist's in America. She said a lot of people claim to do Thai massage and maybe even apply some of the techniques but to truly learn you have to go to Thailand and study for many years.

And here I was hoping that she would need to practice some of the techniques on me this weekend.

Derek,
Guys like us need some time to be lazy, right?

Oh well, maybe my massage therapist isn't technically "Thai CertifiedTM", but whatever she did, I'll do it again!

He passed through NYC every so often and I am hooked. You can prob arrange for him to come your way if you set up a few days worth of clients. Def worth it!

I'm so glad I'm getting the gym started (the affiliate fee gets paid today! YES!). I need to start having CF classes so I can trade with the thai massage therapist!

Once a week sounds perfect right now.

Sarena,
As things go when starting a business (and with all of mine and my wife's families in Tucson), I won't be going anywhere around the holidays. You're very welcome to stop by!
