I feel stronger and healthier than 30 years ago.

I feel stronger and healthier than 30 years ago
‘My friends did not recognize me. I really had to say, yes it is me, I don’t have a younger looking twin,’ laughs the 56-year-old Shaun Spencer. ‘I was like slouching, forward shoulders. I was always tired, constantly tired from my job. Now, I feel stronger, healthier than I felt 30 years ago.’
Shaun talks very relaxedly in a Zen-like way. His eyes twinkle, he smiles a lot. You can clearly see he is enjoying life. He looks fit, just had been working out in the gym, he says.
I am surprised to see how much he has changed. I remember meeting Shaun, who is originally from South Africa, living for several years in Amsterdam now, in one of our massage lessons a year ago. Back then, he looked very tired. Much older actually. I ask him to reveal his secret and Shaun enthusiastically tells me the whole story:
Lower back pain
‘I have spent the last 8 years behind the desk and computer. In that time I developed lower back pain. So I went to a couple of massage places and they gave me temporary relief. But it was temporally. Then I found a lady and she was very good, she helped me a lot. Actually, for the whole week, I had no back pain.
Work for me
And the second time I was with her, she said: ‘You don’t look so very happy’, so I said: ‘Well, I am not.’ She said: ‘What is it?’ I said: ‘Well, my job. I don’t like my job. But yeah I need money.’ And she said: ‘Why don’t you come work for me?’
Carpal tunnel syndrome
So I said: ‘Well I have carpal tunnel syndrome. I have been operated on, but my hands are still, you know, I use them in a different way than normal.’ She replied: ‘I too have carpal tunnel syndrome. Yet I have not been operated on and I massage six to eight people a day.’
So I thought ‘Ah’. And the second time she asked me to come work for her, I said: ‘Okay, let me try.’ So I did one course with her, I liked it. I did the second course with her, I liked it again, it was basic holistic massage, intuitive massage. I learned a lot. But for me, it was not enough.
So then I googled and found ITM Thai Hand Amsterdam, I emailed and asked if I could be a model ‘victim’ in one of the lessons to see if this was something for me. I really enjoyed it.
At the same time, I had learned that my position in my company was to be terminated within the next three years, so I decided I have to do something and I think I found something I like more.
Meanwhile, I had developed tennis elbow. I don’t really know the reason why I had tennis elbow, it just was. So I had done acupuncture and also physiotherapy for 9 months – twice a month-, and it still did not help. But then when I’d come here to the massage school the second time Manel had done a form of acupressure to my elbow and my forearm. The next day I woke up and I did not have the same pain. I thought ‘Damn, this works.’
So I enrolled in the month acupressure massage therapy program. I did foot reflexology, which at that time was my favourite and still is. Thai table massage, deep tissue and sports massage and Thai chair massage. And after that being in the school and the motivation I got being here, also from you and Manel, enticed me to even wanted to learn more. So I signed myself up for another two courses. Completed one of them, still busy with Wat Po. I really like Wat Po. I found a new direction.
I have not been at the sitting job since November last year. I was just telling somebody today at the gym that I feel stronger, healthier than I did 30 years ago.
No healthy life
Thirty years ago, I was 26. When you are in your mid-twenties you think that life is forever, and I wasn’t particularly leading a very healthy life or anything. I just was living. Enjoying the day and the time and doing what jobs I could. Just to earn money. And if I look at myself today…
I wasn’t very strong
I have never joined a gym. At the beginning of this year, I joined a gym. I needed to build up some strength, after sitting in a chair for 8 years, I wasn’t very strong. If I needed to use my hands, then, of course, I have to do something to build up some form of muscle and stamina to be able to give a lot of massages. Within three months of going to the gym, I have built up more muscle, power, strength and stamina than I had actually in my whole life.
I look younger
Some people don’t recognize me, I look younger now, I heard that from lots of different people, my wife included. She does recognize me of course, but she didn’t recognize my body, as in the old body, she likes the new body hehehe.
My wife is very happy, that I found something that I really like. And she profits as well. Because she had a hip replacement and she broke her ankle, all on the same side, and I have been giving her massages, Thai therapy, and she says, she has been to physios, she has been to doctors, she has tried everything and the only thing that helps her, that after she had a session with me for an hour. The next day she wakes up and says ‘wow I did not wake up last night from my hip’. So this only confirms it for me. Because I know it works, it worked on me. I was my own guinea pig first and I see it on her so she is very happy.
I am a lot more stable mentally now, more at ease, more at peace with myself and I get a lot of energy from giving massages. Also receiving them. I go now once a week at least for a massage. And it helps me in many ways. I walk straight. I feel healthy and I am a lot more positive. I haven’t been this positive in 8 years. So for me, it is a real big change. I am a musician by trade and in the last 4 years I never even picked up my guitar that is the effect that that job had on me. And now I am playing again and I feel very happy.
On the other hand, before I worked in the other company for 8 years, I had a recording studio, and I have been there actually for 18 years. I had a private recording studio for musicians, and unfortunately, I cannot use that space to give massages because my best friend with whom I share the space; he is a wood and metal designer with big saws and dust and all. I could have musicians come in with that, but I can’t have massage clients. So in May this year will be my last month that I am with him and then I am moving to another studio.
I am going to share the space with a lady, she is 65, and she has been giving massage for the last 40 years. So she has a lot of experience. They put the rent up for her so she was looking for somebody. She treated me with my back pain. One of the good places I went in the beginning. So for me, it feels like I actually have done a full circle. I started down from a painful point of view, all the way down to a healthy point of view.
The fact that I know that massage actually works made me want to become healthier. That was for me the trigger point. Because I know this is something, if it works for me, and I wasn’t so healthy then, can you imagine what I can do to people who in general are not so healthy?
And I was also not so positive before. Massage is not just a physical thing, I think it is a mental thing as well. In the last three years that I have been busy with massage, I am receiving it a lot because I took advice from my previous teacher and Manel as well: ‘get as many massages as you can’ so I did. And I found some bad ones I never went back, but I found a couple of good ones and I kept them. So every now and then I go to see them and I get a good massage out of it. But I learned also to focus on my breathing. When I get a massage, I have mastered the art of shallow breathing. I wait for them to push before I breathe out and for the rest, I can actually control my breath a lot more, and that in turn makes my body relax.
Make us all healthy
Look I am 56 now, so I have to work for another 12 years and this will enable me to still support myself and my family and at the same time make us all healthy.’
Thanks, Shaun for sharing your story!
To everyone… Create a healthy and happy day!
Nicole (& of course Manel)

My two sisters and my mother were on daily medications. They tried everything to get rid of the pains.
I am so happy I could help them with massage.

How louiza cures her whole family
‘My two sisters and my mother were on daily medications. They tried everything to get rid of the pains’, says Louiza Kritikou. ‘I am so happy I could help them with massage.’
When Louiza told me her amazing story, I immediately felt like I needed to share this. Because giving massage treatments to your parents, siblings and kids is not so much integrated into our daily lives here in the west.
Actually, it is hardly done at all…
How many people do you know who are giving massage treatments to their families? I am sure that after reading this inspirational story you are with me that this needs to be changed.
So here is her story:
‘It is not in the lifestyle of most people I know to get a massage to improve health. This was also the case for my own family. My parents and sisters did not get massage treatments, because they did not know how beneficial massage can be.
During my massage study, I needed to practice for my exams. I followed the massage programs in Amsterdam and then I went back to my home in Cyprus. So I kept on nagging my family to let me massage them because I knew that they would see a big difference. And they did. They were so impressed.
My sister who is 38 years old suffers from severe constipation. She tried so many things. She tried detox. Then herbal pills to help with the movement of the bowel. She did treatments with a nutritionist. And her regular doctor subscribed medicine. But nothing worked for her.
When I was practising for my Thai yoga massage exams, I just started to massage her belly and she immediately after the massage was able to go to the toilet. That was such a relief for her.
IT IS AMAZING!
And when she went on holiday for 10 days and I didn’t massage her, she didn’t even go to the toilet. Not even once. When she came back I massaged her again and then she went to the toilet the same day. It is amazing!
She then told some other friends and they have the same problem. And they asked me to massage their belly a bit and I did it and then it gets stimulated and then they go to the toilet as well.
So I am giving massage treatments to my sister for three months now, around 2 to 3 times per week, and it works perfectly for her. She is so relieved.
PAIN IN TEETH
My other sister works at the bank and because she sits in front of the computer every day she gets a lot of tension on the neck and shoulders. This causes her a lot of migraines and it even hits her on the teeth,’ says Louiza, while pointing out the pain from the forehead, above the eyes, going towards the jaw and teeth. All signs of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, for which massage can be a perfect treatment to combat the problem.
Louiza continues: ‘When my sister told me about the pain in her teeth, I convinced her that I could massage her. The only time she got a massage was once at a Spa during her honeymoon. And that was a really soft one. So she didn’t really know anything about massages. I insisted that she could get a massage. I told her it is all connected, the neck, shoulders, her jaw and her teeth. It can come because of stress or bad posture. And if there is tension there, we can find it and release it.
Finally, she was convinced and I massaged her head, neck and shoulders for like half an hour. After she left, she texted me that her migraine was gone and then she didn’t take any pills for like 3 weeks or so.
When the pain started again, she came and asked me to massage her again. So I did. So now every time she feels like it is starting to get there, she comes and I massage her. And then it gets her by, so she doesn’t need to take pills.
ADDICTED TO PAINKILLERS
She used to take pills every day. She took painkillers. And at some point, she got addicted to some painkillers. So then she started to take some that were weaker, that didn’t have the addictive thing in them and then they didn’t work. So she had to take more and more.
Eventually, she was taking painkillers every day. And now, now she just comes to get a massage when she feels it is going to start again. She does not need her painkillers anymore. She is very impressed.’
MASSAGING MY 5-YEAR-OLD NIECE
And that is not all… Louiza shows me on her phone a video of her 5-year-old niece. The little girl lays on her belly on the massage table while Louiza is massaging her neck, shoulders and back. The girl giggles and keeps saying how much she loves the massage.
WHEN SHE IS A GOOD GIRL
‘She loves it so much, that we made a deal. Whenever she is a good girl, when she is not naughty, she gets a star. And when she gets five stars, she comes to get a massage by me. She is five years old and she feels that it is her biggest reward she can get. She doesn’t care about toys, or whatever, she just wants a massage every 5 stars,’ laughs Louiza.
11 YEARS OLD CUSTOMER
Louiza took various massage courses with us. While she was still in Amsterdam, she started to work immediately as a massage therapist right after the Deep Tissue and Sports massage course and even became the Spa manager. Now she is back home in Cyprus setting up her own practice. Her youngest customer is 11 years old. She was brought by her mother because she had a lot of pain on her neck and shoulders.
TEENAGERS WITH TENSION
‘When I massaged her, the neck had a lot of tension and the shoulders as well. So I asked her if she spends a lot of time on the computer or on her tablet or on the phone. First, she said: ‘Eh why is this relevant?’ And after she said: ‘Yes, I spend a lot of time when I go home I just sit and be on my phone or I watch stuff on my iPad.’ So then we realized it was because of that so I told her to just lay on her belly when she uses her devices.
BACK PAIN FROM WATCHING TV
She also had a lot of tension in the middle of the back, so I asked her about her posture and the way she sleeps and how she lays down when she watches TV. She said she doesn’t really pay attention so I told her to try and watch her posture more because that is probably why she has these tensions. The next day that she had come, her mom called me and she said: ‘She loved your massage and she went to school and she told all her classmates about it, and they all got so excited and they all wanna come and get massages by you.’ Louiza laughs, but then immediately becomes serious as she addresses the problem.
NECK PAIN FROM PHONE ADDICTION
‘I have another girl who is also 11 years old, and a girl of 14 years old coming for the same reason. It is really terrible that they start to have so many ailments from that age, from watching on phones, iPads and TV.
The one who is 14, does a lot of gymnastics actually, so I did not expect that she had so much tension as well. Because she does some really nice stretches and stuff like that while doing gymnastics. But because she is so addicted to her phone and the iPad that she has so much tension as well. And I noticed that, because when she was waiting outside for the massage, she was constantly watching her phone, sitting like this,’ Louiza shows me while bending forward with the neck looking down while sitting.
PARENTS MOVE MORE THAN TEENS
When I ask her if she also massages her parents, she confirms. What strikes me is a big contrast between the teenagers she describes with their ailments caused by constantly sitting while watching a smartphone, iPad or TV. And that of her father, who is 61 and very fit, because he moves a lot, he is active. He plays a lot of football.
DIFFICULTY TO RELAX
Louiza: ‘My dad enjoys deep tissue massage. He can take the pain. When he has tension, he feels a lot of pain when I massage him, but after he feels so much lighter. So he comes very often. But sometimes it is hard for him to relax because he thinks a lot and finds it difficult to let of control easily.
So sometimes it takes more time to get him to clear his head and just relax. I start with the head then it is easier for him to relax and then he just surrender. He is not very flexible so I do give him Thai yoga massage to make him more flexible, but then I take it easy with the stretches, I stretch less, and for him that works already, because that is what he needs.’
And then, there is Louiza’s mom, who she massages as well. The result is very remarkable!
CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
Louiza: ‘My mom promotes my work so much because she has seen the effect it has on her. She was going to get an operation for her hands because they were getting really numb. She often was not able to hold a pen anymore. And she could barely sleep because of the pain. She got MRI-scans and she tried many things, but nothing was working. The doctors diagnosed her for carpal tunnel syndrome and told her the only option was having an operation.
AVOIDING THE OPERATION
My mom told her doctor: ‘My daughter is coming back and she is a massage therapist and she suggested that to massage me because she thinks that we can make it work and can avoid the operation.’ The doctor agreed and said: ‘Just give it a try and see how it works, if it doesn’t work then you just come back and get the operation.’
So Louiza was right, she impressed her mom and her doctors: ‘It was so great! When I massaged her, only the hands and arms, she could sleep from the first day on. And she couldn’t feel the pain anymore. Then, of course, the pain got back again, but I massaged her again, again and again. And now because it has been a few months already, now she barely gets numb. So she does not need the operation anymore.’
I tell Louiza: ‘Wow, how great that you cured your whole family. What a great job you did!’ She looks humble at me and is modest about her accomplishments.
REALLY NICE FEELING
Then smiled and she ends the conversation with: ‘People were always telling me, why you don’t have a real job and do this as a hobby? But I kept on saying that I want to be a full-time massage therapist. Because it is a very rewarding job. I changed so many jobs in my life and I never felt this pleasure. But with this! Seeing how much you can help people, even your own family gives me so much satisfaction. I feel like I am really doing something good. It is amazing. It is a really really nice feeling!’
Thank you so much Louiza for sharing your story with us. We hope it will inspire others to do the same!
Create a healthy and happy day!
Nicole (& Manel)

I was 101 kilos, had lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and was emotionally down.
I feel brilliant now.

‘I feel brilliant now’ – From truck driver to masseur
‘I was 101 kilos, had lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and was emotionally down,’ says Emmet Khan. ‘When you are tired from work, had very little sleep, the last thing you want to do is exercise. So then what happens? You get fat. You eat bad food, you don’t meal-prep, and you don’t drink enough water. All the toxins stay in your body and then you get bigger and bigger.’
This is the story that Emmet Khan shared after following a weekend massage course, as part of the weekend massage program. As it inspired me, I decided to write it down to inspire others.
‘I am driving since I am 18 years old. First vans, then trucks. I am mostly 8 hours a day driving and pulling pallets because I drive big trucks with freights. Look, this is how I got out of the truck after a working day,’ Emmet says while walking like an old man, slowly, bending forward with a hand on his lower back to hold the pain. ‘I am now 36 years old and know that this is not what I want. So, I decided to get out of the driver’s seat and I quit my job.’
I quit my job
He pauses, smiles and continues. ‘It took me a long time to really take the step. My girlfriend told me to find something else. I first went to the gym. But I got tired and then I started to smoke again, start to eat a lot and my emotions went down. I tried physiotherapy for a long time, but it helped only for a little bit. I got stretches to do at home, but every time the pain got back.
Finally, I went to a sports therapist. I felt really good. He really worked in my tissues, improving blood circulation in my body and worked on my hip, because that is also a big problem. He inspired me. I thought I want to do what he does!’ states Emmet in his brisk Irish accent.
‘This therapist told me he studied traditional Thai massage in ITM Chiang Mai, Thailand, but I wanted to be a bit closer. I live in Dublin and he told me you can also study closer, so he told me to check ITM Thai Hand Amsterdam. I started to read the website and the stories really inspired me.
Then I tried one massage at the school together with my girlfriend and after a lot of reading stories, I then registered for the weekend Acupressure Massage Therapy program level 1. And I fly one weekend a month from Dublin here to Amsterdam to follow the lessons. It is okay, it is just 5 weekends, so I don’t need to take off from work.
You know, after a weekend like this, learning massage for 5 hours a day, I feel brilliant. I come home on a high. I travel back today and in a few hours I come home on a high, I tell the girlfriend everything I learned and I want to practice the massage on her and on the plane the way home I will already get another good idea.
Not thinking about problems
When I massage I am using my body, I am active. Not only is it good for the client to get a massage, but it is also good for me because I am stretching myself because I am moving myself as well while I am giving you the massage. And yes I also got the massage from the other students during the class. It makes you feel good. Because you are releasing endorphins in the body, isn’t it.
And here inside the school, during the class, I am not thinking about any of my problems. It is like I go to the gym I am concentrating whether it is running, is it lifting weights, is it class exercises, whatever… my mind is free. When I come here my mind is free, I don’t think about my problems for five hours that I study here a day. And it is good. I come out and I am fresh again. That is good for my emotions. And that is good for my mentality and I can think for bigger things then because my brain is fresh.’
Not always like this
This has not always been like that Emmet admits. ‘Emotionally I can get down and it stops you from everything, if you let it take control of yourself you will not come out of it for a couple of months. That is me personally, from my experience.’
I tell him I admire his honesty and how easily he talks about difficult moments in his life. He answers happily: ‘Well then it changed. When I got this massage of this sports therapist, it was great. My pains were gone. And I started to train with this personal trainer in the gym. And he got me down to 90 kilos and now I am 84 kilos. I still need to lose a bit. I eat healthier, quit the cigarettes.
Now I know I stay like this. Because now, I am focused. I stopped everything and focus on positive thinking. And when I read your stories, or stories like yours or others like my sports therapist who put stories up as well, when I read other people’s paragraphs it influences me to think positive I think.
Prevent anybody from feeling like the way I felt
Now, I will quit my job in a couple of weeks and get out of the driving seat, because that is my biggest problem, I need to stand more, do exercise. Well, I do now exercise, I train. I need to have time to do what I want to do, which is proceeding in the massage career that I learned now with you.
And by doing that I am going into small personal trainer’s gym, which I have been going into myself for two years and I am going to offer people the massage that I learned of you two. I want to not only do massage and stretching, but I really want to prevent anybody from feeling like the way I felt from driving all day.
No clue about massage
And other people I know work in offices, they have the same problem, they sit in the chair all day. But they have no clue about massage. All they know is let’s go to a hotel. Let’s pay ninety euros and go to the Jacuzzi and sauna and have this person laying me down on a bed with a towel and put hot stones on. That is very soft.
You need to get into the tissue, loosen the whole tissue up. Stretch the tissue. This is what I learned now here in the school. Stretch the tissue and the ligaments, the tendons and go deep and get the blood circulation throughout the body. That is what I want to do for myself that is what I need.
Massage number 1
But I see that other people need this as well. Not a lot of people have the information in Ireland about the benefits of massage. But it is getting there I believe, people nowadays are taking more care of themselves, they want to stop go and party and want to look after the body. I think massage will be the number 1 preventer of injuries.
And when I get massage I feel enjoyment, I feel relaxed, I want the customer to feel the same I feel. So I am excited to go back to Dublin and start to work as a masseur’, he finishes his story while walking out of the school to get the tram to the airport and fly back to Dublin, with his Thai Foot Reflexology Certificate in the pocket. Just before sharing his story he passed the exam of one of the courses of the massage program.
Thanks Emmet for sharing your story!
To everyone… Create a healthy and happy day!

Now I have a job that is fun.

It was the first time I felt a job can be fun!
Read what Teacher Training graduate Marike Sala says…
We asked the opinion of one of our teachers Marike Sala, who followed the Thai Yoga Massage Teacher Training and is now teaching at ITM Thai Hand Amsterdam.
The effects are amazing
‘The Thai yoga massage is a combination between the giver and the receiver. It is a kind of meditation in movement for both. And the effects for both the client and the masseur are amazing,’ says Marike just before the start of a massage class she is teaching.
You feel energized and relaxed at the same time
‘I tried different kind of massages, because I am quite a worrier. So I use the massage in a way to go back into my body. When I received the Thai yoga massage for the first time I could really feel how deep the massage felt in my muscles. I felt energized after the massage. That is the combination that is so interesting, because you feel energized but also feeling really relaxed after the massage.’
I thought wow I like to share this feeling
‘I really thought wow I like to share this feeling with others. I like to give the same feeling to others. And to learn to give this massage as well.” She says in between laying the massage matts in a row in front of the mirror in the massage school to prepare her lesson for today.
‘I followed level 1 and level 2 of Nuad Bo Rarn Thai yoga massage and I started to give treatments myself. It was an amazing feeling because people that I massaged are discovering new forms of massage and they are really grateful about the results.’
For the first time I felt a job can be fun!
‘I think it was the first time for me that I thought: ‘Wow, a job can be fun! A job can give me some positive energy.’ That was really special to me. She smiles, turns on some relaxing massage music and lights the candles in the room, and sits down on a matt wearing traditional massage pants and a t-shirt, to continue her story…
‘When I first took a course I was really excited. Because the way the massage is taught at the school is really interesting. The teachers are really experienced and so passionate about what they are doing. And the way they teach is really the Thai way. It is about watching. It is about feeling and doing it yourself. It is an amazing way of learning. Because you are much more concentrated on what you are feeling, not so much only in the head.’ She smiles and her eyes are twinkling while she passionately talks more.
I thought I cannot do this
‘When I first was in the massage classes, I was always looking at the teacher and I was thinking: ‘Wow I would also like to be the teacher!’, but I was thinking, I might not be the kind of person that likes to speak in big groups to be the center of attention so I thought I am not sure if it is something for me.’
But look where I am now
‘The teachers at the school encouraged me to start and I was well coached. And now… yes well there I am, I am now here in the middle, doing the class.’ Marike points to her students that have been entering the class during our conversation and off she goes teaching Life Balance Massage for Health Classes.
Thank you Marike for sharing your story!
