Student Reviews from Graduating Classes
Kimberly's home is a private Shangri-La.
It is perfectly designed to allow a remarkable residential course
and retreat. The meals were unprecedented, an education in themselves.
I loved taking beautiful walks in the hills. Even Sita, the dog,
This whole week has been an awakening
for me in living naturally, and how to practice this lifestyle daily.
Kimberly, it has been a pleasure and honor to spend this time with
A wonderful experience!
You are one of the most knowledgeable persons I have
ever met. Of this endless pool of knowledge, you have so many gifts.
Thank you for sharing so many of them with me.
A sense of the ancient wisdom of Thai massage brings
such great energy to Kimberly's class and to the learning process
of the week together.
The environment of Kimberly's home reawakened my
awareness of healthy living. To eat organic, lovingly prepared food
was fabulous. I loved the experience of the Thai Buddhist Temple!
Morning exercises, while totally different than my
usual routine, were so appropriate to prepare my own body and spirit
for the practice each day. A rich and rejuvenating learning process!
Kimberly brings the sense of joy and fun, so characteristic
of the Thai people, to life for her students!
Thank you! Kapkun ka!
Learning a complete Thai massage from
top to bottom was only part of the whole. We practiced Yoga and
did breath work to open our bodies and start the day. The whole
group living atmosphere and environment was a departure from my
usual reality, and allowed me to enter into an altered state - one
that was ideal for immersion into the ancient craft of Thai massage.
We learned that Thai massage is a
practice of wholistic and spiritual wellness, as well as a series
of beautiful postures. We lived this wellness principal. Every meal
was organic, lots of raw foods, no sugar, no processing. We soaked
in the hot tub under the stars and hiked for miles in the open space
preserve right next door!
The class materials were valuable.
We were taught thoroughly and masterfully. Kimberly's technique
is impeccable. She is a perfect example of the art and joyous nature
of Thai massage. The environment was comfortable, supportive and
We opened the class with a trip to the Thai Temple,
ceremoniously respected the Thai tradition throughout the week,
and ended with a beautiful ritual.
Thank you for a great week!

Starting out at the Thai Temple and
eating Thai food together was a fabulous way to begin the week and
feel the Thai energy and get to know each other. Staying at Kimberly's
beautiful home in beautiful surroundings made us like a family for
The overall set up was great and very
organized which made it easy and comfortable to settle in for the
week. Starting the day with Yoga and stretching was great for the
body and fun too. The breathing and movement exercises I will take
with me and incorporate into my daily routine. The food was glorious
- the quality was nothing but the best - all organic, prepared with
love, delicious and inspiring.
This exemplified the level of love,
care and respect Kimberly has put into offering this class. Kimberly
is a wonderful teacher - very patient, extremely knowledgeable,
and conveyed much more than just massage moves. Elegance and respect
is conveyed in her teaching style and found throughout her home
in beautiful touches like fresh flowers and aromatherapy misters.
We covered so much material and had
a diligent study week but found time for fun, playing with Sita
the dog, hiking in the beautiful hills of the open space outside
Kimberly's home, and hot tubbing. The week was a lot of work and
comprehensive - but so rewarding in so many ways. I take with me
not only new skills in massage but something that is so much more…Tradition,
healing, and a new found respect for myself and others. Kapkun ka!
My week at the Thai Massage Course
has been very uplifting in many ways. I feel so much more alive
and aware at the end of this fabulous week, my health has improved
greatly, my body is more flexible and relaxed. Working on the floor
and mat is fun and offers opportunity for stretches beyond Yoga.
I feel like I have been on a vacation for a month.
Starting my day with Yoga, breathing and praying is so much more
enjoyable than just jumping into a car and going to work. I feel
my life is changing in a positive way after the course, with more
energy and great new ideas for healing myself and others.
I highly recommend this course for people who want
to improve their healing practice whether they are just starting
out or are already massage therapists and acupuncturists.

I had heard about Thai massage while
at a spa in Canada. Kimberly's website was an immediate hit on my
search. After reading through her material and testimonials, I called
and booked a massage with Kimberly prior to the Intensive. Her whole
house reflected the spirit, tradition and joy of Thailand.
Even before our session began, I knew
this would be an experience I would not forget. Half way through
the massage, I decided to come back for the training Kimberly offered.
Having studied massage for over 28 years, I knew that this training
would be different.
The week had a great beginning as
we met at the Buddhist Temple in Oakland to get acclimated to the
Thai Tradition. Paying our respects to the monks and learning about
Thai traditions was a great introduction to this work, and enjoying
Thai foods with the other students allowed us all to get acquainted.
Residential meant we all spent the
week in Kimberly's lovely home tucked away in Lucas Valley. Intensive
meant working together from 7:00am - 9:00pm most days. Certification
meant we not only completed the work but graduated by doing a two
hour Thai session with our fellow students. Included in the daily
sessions were gourmet natural food meals - each one a total delight.
As the week progressed, I struggled with getting
my out of shape, inflexible body to align with my intention to really
get this. By the end of the week, I am pleased to say there was
I highly recommend the class! Great work Kimberly!
