Practical Uses For:

Mastic Essential Oil

Among the virtues of Mastic (or Pistacia lentiscus) we find cardiovascular benefits that can help fight cellulite, hemorrhoids, heavy legs, edema, lymphatic stasis and varicose veins.

Dilute 5 to 10 drops of Mastic essential oil  in vegetable oil and massage the lower limbs and areas concerned in the morning and evening.

This oil is perfect to use in times of heat and humidity to relieve our heavy and sometimes swollen legs!

A Labour Of Love

When asked what I do, I answer: “I’m a Massage Therapist”. Not that this defines me but I do feel that this is the path I was called to be on. Some might call it dharma (universal order), a calling or life’s work, but whatever it is, I truly love what I do.

Over the years, I had the opportunity to research and develop workshops that I believe have expanded Lotus Palm and have put us on a bigger part of the map. Our 400-Hour Massage Therapist Program has been a labour of love. From our staff and teachers to our graduates, we are dedicated to offering the most experienced and most professional Thai Massage Training you will find.

Whether you want to be a Massage Therapist, are already one, or just want to learn a new skill, this will change your life forever.

-Sukha Wong
Director of Lotus Palm

Thai Fun Fact: Thailand is where you’ll find both the smallest and the largest creatures.

The smallest mammal in the world, the Kitti Hog-nosed Bat (also known as the Bumblebee Bat) calls Thailand home. This tiny creature weighs only 2 grams and measures between 29-33mm. You could maybe spot a few when visiting caves along the rivers in Western Thailand and South East Burma.

In contrast, you could encounter in Thai waters the whale shark, the largest fish with an average size of 9.7 meters and 20,000 pounds! Rest assured, this giant and vulnerable species is a filter-feeding shark and prefers smaller prey like plankton and fish!

At the Heart of Lotus Palm

Suzanne Chan

"I was producing memorabilia for others and myself, but it started to feel unsustainable (in all meanings of the word). It was then that I started to look for ways to transition from product to service. Massage seemed like a good fit. I could work with my hands and be of service."

Ayurvedic Thai Therapy 1 with Sukha Wong

This intensive also includes determining an individual’s Ayurvedic constitution (vata, pitta, or kapha); how to bring energy movement with vayus into Thai Yoga Massage; how to create a customized two-session Thai Yoga Massage wellness program; and how to incorporate the use of the knees as a massage technique in a 60-minute Thai massage flow.
