Ioannis Sampsonidis Thai massageHi, I am Ioannis. The first massage module I came in contact with was the imperial Chinese massage called Chi Nei Tsang. This helped me to discover how much I enjoyed helping others to enhance their own energy flow and thus heal themselves. This experience led me to further studies on Shiatsu, Reiki, Thai Massage, Hatha Yoga, Touch for Health (applied Kinesiologie) and Sotai Corrective Bodywork. Today, as a certified associate instructor of Master Mantak Chia’s Universal Healing Tao System, I teach Conscious Breathing, Healing Sounds, Chinese Yoga, Qi Gong and Meditation. I am also a 300h certified Hatha Yoga teacher by the Lotos Yoga Academy, one of the oldest Yoga Alliance Certified schools in Greece. But mostly I teach and practice Thai massage as a way of living life through “insightful touch”, as one could freely translate the Sanskrit phrase “Kavi Hasta”.
