    "Did not know what to expect, but it had far exceeded my expectations. I learned a lot about basic Thai massage and the course was very hands on. Jaci was an excellent, loving and caring instructor. I would definitely refer others to Toronto School of Thai Massage and I myself would definitely consider taking another Thai Massage course through Toronto School of Thai Massage." 

    Ken Wang

     

     

    "I wholeheartedly believe in the healing power of Thai massage. It is one of the most beneficial massage practices today. The best way to unlock these benefits is through a great therapist and Jaci is one of the greats! I have had the pleasure of being taught by and learning from Jaci over the years. I have the utmost respect for her as she is dedicated, passionate and one of the most knowledgeable educators I have had the pleasure or working with. Education and the continuous improvement of ones skill is an important aspect of her teaching. She embodies this notion as she prides herself on being a life long learner herself. She is always looking to further her mastery of learning in energy work, quantum physics, and Thai massage in order to further benefit her students. Not only is Jaci a Thai massage master educator, she continuously works towards advancing the practice in Toronto and for that she has my highest recommendation."  

    Pamela Jarman

     

     

    "Jaci, I'm so glad I met you! I had to follow my intuition and travel all the way to your school and I was right because you are a wonderful teacher and an exceptional human being. Looking forward to seeing you again, metta."

    "I am so glad to have begun my path of studying Thai Massage with Jaci. Her courses, as well as her treatments, are wonderful because she genuinely loves the art of Thai Healing and this love shines through in her work. Jaci is personally invested in educating her students to become the best they can and incorporates thoroughly science as well as spirituality into her workshops. She not only taught me Thai Massage, but taught me to love and respect the art, through an understanding of it's core philosophies. After completing foundations 1 & 2 with Jaci, I am confident in my ability to heal, and am excited to continue studying further as her student." 

    Ali

     

     

    "My training in Thai Massage at the Toronto School of Thai Massage was a very positive experience. Jaci keeps her workshops small so that she is able to offer her students the individual attention they need, and she employs a variety of training techniques that are very helpful for learning the techniques well. Jaci is a very kind, generous, encouraging, knowledgable and supportive practitioner, instructor, and mentor of this very effective holistic modality. By the time I had completed my studies and achieved my certification, I felt confident that the expert training I had received would help me to offer a very effective treatment to my clients."
