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 sciatica 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.
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.
She visited Thailand twice and studied at ITM International Training Massage School in Chiang Mai Thailand. She completed advanced courses plus the Teacher Training Program. She taught there most mornings and received her credential to use in the United States.
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 that is causing difficulty or pain. By being present she can feel the tight muscles and nerves.
