Yong Kiat worked for over 10 years as both a massage therapist and a "Kru"/instructor for Ajahn Pisit Benjamongkonwaree (he regularly taught the advanced course at Pist Massage, "Therapeutic Acupressure For Local Pain"...this is where I first met him in 2002).
Ajahn Pisit was famous for teaching the blind in Bangkok to become Thai Massage therapists. His school was considered the premiere Thai Massage school in Bangkok for over three decades. It was the school where many "farang"/foreigners studying Thai Massage would go to learn after exhausting all of the courses given at Wat Po, the most famous massage school in Thailand.
Ajahn Pisit died in 2012. Shortly before he died, he called Yong Kiat to his side and gave him some final instructions on how to carry forward his lineage of Thai Massage. Yong Kiat is one of his most accomplished students, and this bedside last meeting was Ajahn Pisit's way of recognizing Yong Kiat in that regard.
If you wish to check out my credentials, please go to my google maps reviews to read about my success in treating pain, none of which would have been possible without Yong Kiat's expert instruction.
