FAQ and Testimonials


After studying Thai Massage in Thailand, I was looking for advanced courses and found TMT online. I was eager to take courses with Deanna. She is very humble and compassionate, and has great energy. I enjoy being around her and Juan. He is a very good listener and has given me good advice for my practice. They are very supportive and demonstrate metta (loving kindness) to all of their students. I’m very grateful and happy for the opportunity to be part of TMT. I don’t know anyone who could have taught me as well as Deanna and Juan have.

After looking at many schools, I chose TMT on a gut feeling and my life path took a completely different direction. Deanna and Juan have a great open approach to people. Juan is like a coach; an energetic motivator. Deanna is positive, easy to talk to and very grounding. Their style of instruction continues beyond the classroom and techniques into all applications of life. They’re able to push me to expand my boundaries, but can sense when being forceful. At a different school, my experience might have been very limited, but here it’s boundless and I appreciate the trust they’ve placed in me.

I came to TMT looking for more training in alternative healing and met Deanna and Juan. Throughout my training, I found them knowledgeable, patient and attentive in the classroom. Deanna is very warm and I appreciate how centered she is. Juan has been very supportive of my work here at the clinic. Both are very genuine and that is a trait that I highly value. It closed the deal for me and made me want to train and work here. It’s been a pleasure training, working, and getting to know the both of them.

With much Gratitude,
Dr. Melissa West –  Practitioner  Level 1 & 2

Hey Deanna, 10 years! Wow, congratulations! The success of TMT is a HUGE tribute to you, and your beautiful teaching style….. not to mention your grace and incredible presence. I feel lucky to have studied under you, and have enjoyed every minute of my courses at the school, particularly the private one I took with you. Peace
Louise McDonald – Senior Practitioner Levels 1-4

I have taken multiple courses at Thai Massage Toronto and there are many things that are consistent — Deanna’s professionalism, knowledge and patience. I came in to the clinic having never done a massage on someone else before and in just a few short months, I am able to perform minimum 2 hour massages with extreme confidence. Deanna is a great teacher that adheres to adult learning principals. Thanks Deanna and team.
