I am using today’s blog to let you know about a series of five full-length videos now available in DVD format at the deonThai Website Store, which correspond to the five deonThai training workshops that I have developed, forming the deonThai METHOD Practitioner Training Program.
For me, the audio-visual segment of my practice provides more than just a chance to augment the live training program. It constitutes a milestone that caps my first 12 years in the field. It is the culmination of the first phase of what has become my life’s work, after I did my first training in 2000 with Saul David Raye. Having now completed these learning tools, which sum up the formal curriculum of the program I have built up, I now feel free to move on to new creative ventures, finding more ways to continue my research, training and then presentation of my approach to applying the graceful and ancient Healing Art of Therapeutic Thai Massage.
Knowing that this video documentation project is now complete, I feel that my universe has shifted into a new phase and I offer it to the public as a record, even a legacy, of these past years’ work and all the wisdom I have gained from my teachers, students and clients. I must say that I feel satisfied and fulfilled and would like to thank everyone who has crossed my path on this wonderful journey, for all their valuable contributions – from the bottom of my heart.
Specifically including my formal Thai Massage teachers: Saul David Raye, Pichest Boonthumme and Dr. C. Pierce Salguero – without whom I would not be who I am today … Thank You Very Much!
And I then would also like to thank Producer Geoff Erwin and Editor Jonathan Whittle-Unger for all their excellent work in helping me to bring this series to you now.
Apart from the above, the purpose of the 5-DVD Series can be summed up as follows:
I am also proud and excited to detail here what the whole DVD series is all about:

Each is affordably priced at $19.95 for a single DVD, and $29.95 for the 2-DVD set. They are now available, at the deonThai Store Webpage, and will soon also be available through Amazon.com.
In closing, of course, as always I truly welcome your feedback and comments – especially about your own experiences with me, the deonThai METHOD and Therapeutic Thai Massage in general.
Until next time,
