Bodywisdom School

"if you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything"

Thich Nhat Hanh

The heart of the practice

We believe that the practice of Thai massage can be a lifelong journey connecting us both to ourselves and to an ancient tradition of healing that combines heart, presence, spirit, technique and quality of touch.

I can give you nothing that has not already its origins within yourself. I can throw open no picture gallery but your own. I can help make your own worlds visible, that is all. Hesse

Bodywisdom School was founded by sisters Fiona and Nicola Smith in 2007 and the Danish school, Bodywisdom DK was founded in 2016 when Fiona moved to Copenhagen.

We teach Northern style Thai Massage, as learned from our teachers Asokananda, Pichet and many others and we continue to learn and to develop both what we practice in our clinics and offer students the classroom. We teach and host workshops for both beginners and advanced practitioners, a foundation course and an accredited professional training programme.

Currently we offer our workshops and courses in Bristol and Bath in the UK, and in Denmark and Thailand. For more information about UK courses, please go to

We are affiliated with the BRCP, (UK) and TTYMA (UK) and Fiona is both an authorised teacher for The Sunshine Network (International) and an instructor member of THAI.
