It was something entirely new to me and, even though the hour I spent there was marred by the serious case of sunstroke caused by walking from the hotel to the massage parlour and back, I realized I wanted to repeat the experience.

A few days later, I met Mrs. Po on the Koh Phangan Island, a fifty-year old woman who became my friend in a matter of days and whom I visited three times a week to get a massage.In fact, it all started with Mrs. Po, and in my later visits to Thailand I sought out her massage obsessively. For me, Thai massage had become Mrs. Po’s massage. The hours spent in her home weren’t just about the massage, though. They were about a ritual that put me in an incredibile state of ease: I started my day with a latte, then strolled to her house, had a chat, she would ask about my family, about my husband and our nine-month old boy, then she would start the massage.

It never took just one hour. What with the chatting and the ginger tea afterwards, it was an hour and a half before I left. I never had a chance to return to Koh Phangan again, but Mrs. Po’s massage determined me to travel all across Thailand.I went from Koh Lipe to Chiang Mai, from Koh Chang to Samui, from Koh Bulone to Koh Mak, but everywhere I felt like there was something missing and I knew I had to keep travelling on.

It took me some time to understand that Mrs. Po’s massage was also an inner state – a lust for life, for new things, a kind of relaxation that I had never experienced before.Once I realized that, I gradually shed my idealized obsession, I opened myself to the experiences and the people I met, I started to understand Thai massage and the differences between the various styles, I read about traditional Thai medicine and eventually, when I felt ready, I joined the Thai massage school in Bangkok. This time I was searching for Thai massage, not for Mrs.

Po’s massage. But you know what? The techniques there were a lot like hers. That’s how I remembered that on a wall in her home she had a Thai massage diploma from the school in Bangkok.
