Tassanee Boonsom has trained with and learned from many different teachers. She studied nerve touch or jap sen with her first teacher Mama Lek Chaiya on Thapae road in Chiang Mai. Then she searched for more school to study at and completed several more courses with Pichest Boonthumme, Ithidet Manarat “Poo”, at the Old Medicine Hospital, The Health Care Department of Thailand, and Wat Po to name a few. Coocky has also studied several times at Tao Garden: Chi Nei Tsang with Master Mantak Chia and Jutta Kellenberger, Chi Kong and Tai Chi with Master Li Hechun, and Karsai Nei Tsang with Khun Nom and Khun Ni. In the same way Coocky studied self-development with Khun Jasmine at Pothiyalai, Ashtanga Yoga with William at Yogasala and she practiced meditation at Wat Rampoeng. She has been practising Reusi Datton (traditional Thai yoga), for many years and recently she has begun to study Kundalini Yoga with Siri Shabd Singh..

Loi Kroh was established in 1998 as a massage salon. A year later, Loi Kroh began teaching private lessons; one-on-one courses taught by Tassanee Boonsom “Coocky” and her friend Keiji. Loi Kroh works with a wide variety of students who come to us to perfect their skills, even if they have studied elsewhere.
With a long ban on all incoming international flights into Thailand since April 2020, no students are able to come to Thailand. For now, this ban will continue until the end of June 2020. Sadly, this also means that we cannot hold on to our physical location at Loikroh road Soi 3 with this uncertainty in the industry. We have decided to let go of the school’s location for now and let everyone rest and recover for the time being. When the situation improves and everyone has healed, we will continue the Loi Kroh Traditional Thai Massage and Yoga classes again. The new location has not been decided yet, but we will announce this when we are ready to continue.
