Our Massage Teachers and Facilitators

Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha Founder of Thai massage

Massage Teachers and facilitators of Sunshine Massage School Beginner's classes. 

We are proud of our teachers and their accomplishments. 

Even though they are teachers they never stop learning and strive to gain more knowledge that they can pass on to their students. Each of our teachers is highly trained and experienced not only in the art of Traditional Thai Massage but also in the art of teaching. They know how to create a friendly and comfortable atmosphere in the class room so that students are given the best environment in which to learn and develop their own skills and practice.

   Our full time teachers

'Aom' Juntrakoon

I get along well with others, and I like to share ideas with students, colleagues and friends. I enjoy cooking, and when I have free time I also like to travel because it gives me new perspectives on life. I smile easily and I'm enthusiastic in my work. As a teacher, I meet and interact with a lot of students, and this makes me feel happy and fulfilled. I love teaching at Sunshine Massage School.
