Blue Lotus Thai Healing Studies

Our practitioners received certification through, and continue to be very involved with the Blue Lotus programs and renowned teacher Paul Fowler. We recognize that learning Thai bodywork is a never ending adventure, and our community here is our family.


"Paul Fowler was named the “Best Thai Massage Therapist in Chicago” by Chicago magazine in 2005. Featured in Time Out Chicago, Fox News, WGN morning news, and public television, he is a 2001 graduate of the Chicago School of Massage Therapy.

After spending nearly a year in Thailand in 1999, studying with Pichest Boonthumme, perhaps the greatest living teacher of the art, he began teaching Thai massage in 2001. He goes back to Thailand yearly to reconnect with his teacher and deepen his practice and understanding."

Master teacher Pichest Boonthumme

"My massage is more than just a form, I teach that to meditate, pray and listen deeply, I teach students to free yourself from guidance by mind and with proper techniques, follow your intuitive guidance, transmitted from all healers who have come before you."


There are very few master teachers of this modality left, but we are honored to have had the opportunity to study with him at his home in Thailand. Below is a link to his program, and a few informative writings about him.
