Please meet the newest addition to our team. This is " Yogi Chi Zen Babe Bojangles" or otherwise known as "Yogi" The One Eyed Wonder Cat who is our official lobby greeter. :)
You are considered VERY lucky if Yogi comes out to greet you as he is rather shy. He is a sweet-natured fella who loves lotsa love since he is a rescue cat. Please do not let Yogi out as he is blind in one eye so is safer for him to be indoors. He is also never in the spa room and our lobby and spa premises are sanitized daily so there is no worries if you have allergies.

History of Wat Pho Thai Traditional Massage School
The ancient practice of applying pressure along the muscular and nervous system has been used in Thailand since before the Sukhothai period in the 12th century, but methods and practices were continually improved until finally the centre of knowledge came to rest at Wat Pho (Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangkhlaram Ratchaworamahawihan) in Bangkok.
In fact, this was the first centre of higher learning in Thailand and within the temple there are many tablets inscribed with instructions for practicing Thai massage and a pharmacopeia with over 1000 herbal cures listed for a range of ailments..
Following a visit to the temple by King Rama 9, the abbot of Wat Pho was asked to create a formal school from which to teach four traditional courses: Pharmacy, Medical Practice, Midwifery and Massage. In turn, WatPo Thai Traditional Medical and Massage School was opened in 1955.Chetawan Wat Po Thai Traditional Medical School recently outgrew its premises inside the temple and moved across the road, but still close enough to hear the monks chanting their morning prayers.In total there are 15 different massage courses taught at Wat Pho Massage School
Our massage professionals are certified but are not Registered Massage Therapists (RMT) since our training was from Thailand and certified by Ministry of Public Labour of Thailand; therefore you are not eligible for claims through the Canadian medical system at this time. Receipts are gladly issued for those who maybe eligible through their Extended Care.
