The Full Story
The home page briefly touched on Ajarn's bio. After his initial training in Bangkok, he worked 37 years at the University Hospital in Chiang Mai.
He was intensely exposed to the "medical" side of massage and developed a passion for working with paralysis and stroke cases. He was (and is) legendary in the Thai medical community. Unlike the typical Thai massage you will encounter, his style is uniquely gentle but still effective.
Yes, he was trained in the traditional Thai Massage method but his actual practice is devoted to relieving "modern" medical conditions due to accidents, disease, trauma, etc. Often he will also suggest physical exercises to a patient -- as was his scope of practice during his work in the Rehabilitation unit.
Its been over a decade since his "retirement" but the "Blind Professor" is still i sought after by both foreigners and local citizens.

Ajarn Sinchai speaks English quite well, so feel free to communicate your situation. But do be patient (!) as some medical or technical terms may not be the same used here in the Thai medical environment.
Essentially.... you're in good hands!
