Sara is an incredible teacher and is very well know in both the USA and Thailand. She has a wealth of both knowledge and experience. I have spent over 3 weeks taking courses with Sara in the USA. I am a practicing physician and i find the Thai approach to illness fascinating. It is a great experience for someone with a Western medical education to see how Thai massage views the situation in a different fashion and one that is more holistic.
