Latest participant is Sunee Obermaier from Thailand/Germany. She is one of the Pioneers who participated online at the World Championship in Massage 2021 where she won Silver in the Thai Massage category. IMA has asked her to tell about herself.
My name is Sunee Obermaier, born 36 years ago in beautiful Thailand, working and living with my family in Germany. I’ve been working as a massage therapist since 2012, after I finished the traditional Thai Massage course from Wat Pho Thai Medical School.
Working as massage therapist in Germany, I gained first experience and developed my passion for giving massage. Getting so positive feedback from the clients, the satisfaction to be able helping them and make their life better, motivated me to improve myself. Since 2016 I do have my own studio called Lamoon-Lamai Thai Massage in Germany.
I participated the training program of the Thai Royal Embassy in Germany, till being a certified Thai massage trainer.
My massage style is based on Thai Royal Massage and the traditional Thai massage:
Thai Royal Massage is an acupressure technique which was exclusive for the royals and powerful people in ancient Siam. The therapist uses the palm of the hand and thumb only.
The traditional Thai massage is mainly based on stretching techniques, with acupressure elements.
To expand my massage knowledge and improve flow and techniques, I attended, among others, workshops for Thai Warrior massage by Master Jack and Thai Dancing massage by Master Chang.
I combine those types with and without oil, yoga influenced stretching techniques and further massage arts like Swedish-Massage, deep tissue and aroma therapy to improve the experience and benefit for my client.
I always improving myself. Right now I’m working on being a WYA certified yoga teacher.
Never stop improving yourself! I’m looking forward what the future brings.
