About Deon De Wet, NCBTMB, RYT
Deon first discovered “Nuad Boran”, Traditional Thai Massage, while traveling in Thailand on vacation in the year 2000. It brought forth sensations of emotional and spiritual well-being, similar to those related to periods of deep meditation. He also experienced a profound sense of Bliss and connection to his body, previously only felt after vigorous exercise. On his return to the USA, he began a period of intensive and ongoing training with Saul David Raye, who had spent years learning the system while living in a Hill Tribe Village in Northern Thailand. Saul was personally certified to teach this ancient healing art by the late, legendary Asokananda, one of the world’s foremost experts in Traditional Thai Massage. After completing several training courses, retreats and evaluation of hundreds of hours of work, Deon was certified as an Advanced Thai Yoga Therapy Practitioner. Deon also became a Certified Massage Therapist, after receiving thorough training in Swedish and Circulatory Massage at IPSB, the Institute for Psycho-Structural Balancing in Culver City, California. He has been practicing Yoga for many years and obtained his Teacher Training Certificate in the Anusara style of Hatha Yoga. Deon still returns to Thailand periodically, where he spends time in Chiang Mai, studying with and experiencing treatment sessions from master Thai Massage practitioners and teachers such as Pichest Boonthumme, one of Asokananda’s early teachers.
