Athicha grew up with her Grandparents in the village of Chaum Saeng District called Nakhon Suan between Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Her grandfather was a well known healer of people, he helped to heal them with the help of natural plants. Athicha also developed a great enthusiasm to help heal people when they have pain or stiffness etc.
She came to Koh Phangan around 2003 for a holiday and fell in love with the island & decided to stay. She then studied 420 hours in Traditional Thai Massage near Bangkok and after many successes of her unique healing massage and Thai massage courses she was hosting, her greatest dream was to develop a product for her patients, which could help relieve pain.
By 2005 she was helping many new and regular clients who needed pain relief, this led to her creating her own massage balm which her clients often asked if they could buy from her.
In 2010 she attended University to study the effect of plants for healing, she then began to combine different herbs & after around 6 months and many attempts of different herb combinations, many improvements were done and Athicha Balm was created. After that she went to work in Europe as a Thai Masseuse and realized how in demand she was so she decided to sell her massage balm to clients who she could not attend to which would help them relieve pain by applying the balm themselves.
Here are some of the certificates Athicha was awarded:
* Traditional Thai Midwifery: Feb 2014
* Traditional Thai Massage: Aug 2015
* Traditional Thai Medical treatment: Jun 2015
Athicha now has her own plot of land where she plans to create a healing center which can offer Yoga & Organic food, additional to her massage sessions, courses & workshops on how to relieve pain using Athicha balm.
Athicha Herb Balm is made from 15 fresh and dried herbs as well as coconut oil.
