Biography

Betse is a true Master of Thai Massage

She has been an Instructor and Practitioner of Thai Massage since 1993

She has developed special techniques to relieve pain that allows the recipient to feel comfortable while releasing the problem. She is firm but gentle. Betse loves teaching Thai Massage and wants her secrets to be available to anyone who has a sincere desire to learn.

In 1993, when Betse first started doing THAI MASSAGE most people had not heard of this form of massage. She promoted it as THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE OF THAILAND and explained that it was done on a mat on the floor, fully clothed without oil. It was excellent for sciatic and back pain, neck and shoulder pain, and other body challenges. The more she was able to release pain through her massage, the more referrals she received for therapeutic massage. Ultimately, she ended up creating her own style.

In finding Thai Massage Betse found her true passion in life.

What Differentiates Her Style

Betse treats her moves as a dance with each step flowing into the
next. All through the stretches, she massages the different areas that are revealed in that stretch. By being present she can feel the tight muscles and nerves, She intuitively knows what is needed.

When Betse went to IPSB (International Pacific School of Bodywork), she wanted to be a Healer. When she discovered THAI Massage, she was so excited about the quality of the massage, it more than exceeded her expectations. Her work just keeps getting better over the years.

 Betse grew up in a medical family, Her dad was a doctor(General Practitioner) and  mother was a nurse. When she was a teenager, and during college vacations, she worked in her dad’s medical office using his unique healing tools including Ultra Sound on his patients.

Betse’s background as an elementary school teacher  helped her greatly as a THAI MASSAGE Instructor. Her love of teaching plus her passion for Thai Massage allowed the students to learn from her with ease.

By the fall of 1993 Betse had taken the full Thai Massage course twice (the second time for no credit, just to perfect her skills). She had also taken  advanced courses both in California and Thailand and was receiving Thai Massage weekly from an instructor for several years.

Betse became a Thai Massage Instructor at Natural Healing Institute in Encinitas for 5 years and currently teaches her own style privately.

She visited THAILAND twice and studied at ITM INTERNATIONAL TRAINING MASSAGE, an institute of Thai Massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand where She completed advanced courses plus The Teacher Training Program (Teaching at ITM in Thailand). She taught there in the mornings and received her credential to use in the United states.
