Read two case studies from our Sacred Health students:

“I enrolled on the Sacred Health training because I realised that I needed new tools to allow for the evolution of my business in light of our socially distanced times…”


I enrolled on the Sacred Health training because I realised that I needed new tools to allow for the evolution of my business in light of our socially distanced times and because I wanted to develop my practice by growing my offering with light touch treatments. At this time, when hard work is the best work, beating the virus is the solution etc, I felt that gentler, more compassionate healing was called for, and this is exactly what this course is furnishing me with. Natasha creates a safe space where every bit of ourselves is welcome – we can go deep and receive deeply. This has created a very special bond between all of us in which our vulnerabilities are welcome.

The focus so far has been on learning Bowen Therapy, which is exactly what I sought in terms of light touch work, and this has been complimented by meditations, EFT, archetypes, astrology, and we are yet to get onto the beautiful tuning fork and tok sen tools that arrived in a parcel just before the course started (a very exciting precursor!).

Natasha’s focus on self care and her placing of it at the root of everything we do is transformative for how we ‘do’ our businesses and ‘be’ ourselves. It brings spaciousness and kindness, not just into our work but into our lives. This offers peace and groundedness in the present, and a steady mind when planning for what looks to be a volatile future that we now move towards with an array of nourishing tools with which to support everyone around us.

“…It has been such a journey already. I have learnt so much about myself, my business and about a whole new modality…”


I started studying the Sacred Health course with Natasha in September and it has been such a journey already. I have learnt so much about myself, my business and about a whole new modality. One of my favourite aspects has been learning Bowen, there is such a thrill to applying new skills and seeing incredible results, having faith in something new that you don’t entirely understand. I also love exploring meditation, delving into my past to unlock my future and dancing, laughing and crying with my new course buddies. I feel positive about the future and know that I am setting a new course for myself and my business. It’s not always easy especially with so many other things to juggle but I know the hard work will be totally worth it.

I can not recommend enough the Thai Medicine for The Four Trimester course with Natasha de Grunwald. The knowledge and information that was shared on the course was incredible and gave me so much self-assurance as a practitioner to be able to support pregnant clients through their stages of pregnancy and postpartum with confidence. Natasha has extensively researched and embodied this knowledge through not only her personal experiences with her own practice but through her travels to Thailand studying and seeking wisdom from village midwives and herbalists who generously shared their expertise with her. In turn, Natasha has kindly and generously shared this within her incredible course. The course is for you if you are already working or wishing to support pregnant clients through your Thai Bodywork so that you can fully support them with the beautiful toolkit on offer within this course.

Having taken the first module and the herbal compress course with Natasha, I can say what a very precious and beautiful space she creates for her students. I am taking the next module this year, and she has also invited me to attend the first module again [as an intern]. Natasha cares deeply about the practice and for her students, and I could not ask more of her course. Really looking forward to it!

Do you want to feel like you’ve been blissed out on a tropical beach for days and be able to give this special feeling to others , this is a skill to learn and embrace. I experienced quite a profound healing in my body due to a restriction caused by a recent traumatic bereavement, such that my pilates/dance teacher commented that suddenly I have space in my body and was asking what had happened. Thank you so much Natasha. As a student practitioner the feedback has a been humbling, my patients are returning and the joy I feel in witnessing being able to help them is immense. It feels inspiring to have begun learning something that is truly a gift to share with our fellow human beings.

I did the Intro day in Jan. 17 and was so keen to learn more of what Natasha had to teach I enrolled to start my Diploma course a couple of weeks after. The teaching was easily accessible with good pointers to help hone the techniques. The demands of the course seemed quite high at times, but having now qualified, I can see how much experience is necessary to find myself within the art and to become comfortable with such a wide range of techniques. The feedback I have had from clients has blown me away and I feel endowed with magical powers by Natasha. I love what has been shared by LITYM and know I will be enrolling in further courses as my practice develops.

I’m so happy to have found Natasha and her courses. The courses are so accessible for beginners and she is a great down to earth teacher. For anyone looking to expand their knowledge of Thai Massage and the Thai element theory or learn a new skills then this is the course for you.

Without having received any previous instruction in Thai massage, I can sense that Natasha’s given style of tuition is informative, inclusive and fun yet delivered safely, with integrity and with passion for her subject and with regards for differing learning paces. Forever a student herself and forming part of an unusually direct-to-source teaching lineage, this experienced teacher and Thai bodyworker aptly covers the basics and beyond, delving into mysteriously fascinating depths of Thai medicine and culture – covering far more than just the practice itself. With an emphasis on continuous development for all past and future students, London Institute of Thai Yoga Massage delivers absolutely first rate courses and workshops which just make you want to return again and again, as this evolving student has done!

Natasha’s training is amazing! I only get the best client’s feedback when I massage them using the techniques I learnt from Natasha. Would do it again and can recommend highly!

I did the Herbal Compress course with Natasha in April 2017 and it was the perfect introduction to this herbal compresses. Not only did we have fun crushing and mixing all of the herbs, and making our own compresses, but we had enough time to practice using them on each other and take some home for further practice. Natasha puts a lot of time, love and energy into preparing this course by sourcing all of the herbs and materials for us. I would really recommend this two-day course to any Thai Massage practitioners who are looking for an introduction to Herbal Compresses and learning how to incorporate it into their practice.
