Thai Massage Summit - Black Mountain, NC

We are honored and excited to have taken over organizing the annual Thai Massage Summit, formerly known as the Thai Massage and Medicine Gathering. Previously held in New Jersey, the Summit will now be hosted at Lake Eden, a stunning retreat center and venue in Black Mountain, North Carolina just outside of Asheville. Surrounded by breathtaking views of mountains, trees, and sky, we feel there couldn’t be a more fitting location to reconnect with fellow Thai Massage therapists and breathe new life into our careers! Presenters include Pierce Salguero, Rose Griscom, David Wells, Jill Burynski,  Wassa Lakham and Dominique Warfield.


Registered Attendees: If you are local to WNC, or are driving to the Summit, we ask that you please bring your mat and email us at to let us know. Thank you!
