Learn More About the History of Our CEO & Founder
The drive we have for excellence and high standards originates from our CEO and founder, Sathiporn “Jennifer” Songsorn. From an early age, she found her calling in massage therapy in the wake of a family tragedy.
After her eldest brother suffered a serious arm injury that required amputation, Jennifer sought an alternative. She massaged her brother’s arm every day for six months. With her determination and increasing knowledge of massage therapy techniques, amazingly her brother regained the use of his arm, despite opposing opinions from doctors.
In 1996, Jennifer enrolled at Wat Pho, the world famous Thai Massage Therapy Academy, in Bangkok, Thailand, where she expanded her knowledge of Traditional Thai massage. Jennifer eventually traveled to the U.S., where she worked numerous jobs to raise money to create her own establishment: Thai-Issan Therapeutic Massage in September 2006. Through this establishment, she trained countless Thai Massage Therapists in Hawaii. Due to her large following, she opened Thai-Issan Massage Academy on February 1, 2014.
