Discovering the Art of Thai Massage: A Journey to a New Life

King Power Mahanakhon.
That's me! I'm standing on a glass floor on top of one of Bangkok's highest building: King Power Mahanakhon.


Welcome to my blog! I'm Varinathon, but you can call me Wārin.

Thai massage is not just a profession for me; it's a passion that fuels my desire to help people live better lives. With every session, I strive to bring relaxation, increased flexibility, and pain relief to my clients.

Join me as I share my journey, from my rural upbringing in Maha Sarakham province to my unexpected adventure in New Zealand, where I'm dedicated to introducing Kiwis to the wonders of Thai massage.

Embracing Thai Values

Growing up in the central-northern region of Thailand, I was raised with traditional Thai values that shape who I am today. Our culture recognizes the importance of holistic health and believes in the power of Thai massage to promote overall well-being. These values instilled in me a deep appreciation for the ancient art of Thai massage and its profound impact on physical and mental health.

A Path of Discovery

While my interest in health led me to work at a pharmacy in Bangkok, I had always been aware of the countless benefits of Thai massage. It intrigued me how this practice, deeply rooted in our culture, was not only used for relaxation but also alongside mainstream medical practices to improve health. It was through a good friend that I had my first hands-on experience with Thai massage, and from that moment, I knew I had found my calling.

Formal Training and Skill Refinement

Fortune smiled upon me when I discovered the prestigious Traditional Medical and Massage School near my home. Eager to deepen my understanding of Thai massage, I enrolled in the school and underwent formal training in this ancient art. Becoming a certified Thai massage therapist was just the beginning, as I soon realised that learning in this profession never ceases. For years, I honed my skills while operating my own traditional Thai massage shop in the outskirts of Bangkok, attracting loyal customers who traveled far to experience the benefits of my treatments.

An Unexpected Journey

Life often takes us on unexpected paths, and mine led me to a place I never could have imagined—Gisborne, New Zealand!

After being granted a 3-year work visa, I embarked on a new chapter of my life in this beautiful adopted country. While there are undeniable differences between Thailand and New Zealand, I discovered that people everywhere share similar desires, needs, and aspirations.

Embracing a New Life

Living in New Zealand has been an incredible experience filled with gratitude and joy. I'm immensely grateful for the opportunity to introduce Kiwis to the wonders of Thai massage and help them live better lives.

Through my new Thai massage studio I aim to provide a sanctuary of relaxation, healing, and rejuvenation for the people of this wonderful country.
