Paramahansa Yogananda (Self-Realization Fellowship)
Jan believes in these words from her guru Paramahansa Yogananda. She sees the potential in everyone. Having background in nursing helps her in bringing about the ancient art of Thai massage to the acceptance of the modern era health care practitioners.

With her keen interest in Thai massage, she pursued her search in the ancient art upon her returned to Thailand. Jan and Kanchanoo (Noo) established a Thai massage school in the year of 2001 and another school in 2002.
Both schools are known as “TMC” and are in the same location. TMC develops and pioneer the new era of Thai massage school with professional management style, yet strictly adhere to the ancient learning discipline. TMC achieved the highest standard and earned the King’s Royal Award for best vocational school of 2005. This is an honor to Thai massage schools in Thailand for it has never been one to earn such highest award from the King.
Jan and Noo set out to search for the truth in Thai massage for over two years with trips around the country, national libraries, ancient book department and achieves, meeting with monks and teachers in villages, the Thai Massage the Thai Way: in Theory and Practice was published in 2006. The book presented the history and background of Thai massage unknown to the westerners before due to lack of access. It was the first Thai massage book available internationally written by Thais. The books were sold out in a year.
Jan faced with the matter of life and death on her dear friend, and in finding a helping hand, she learned that the “energy field” was the key to healing both body and mind and can integrate effectively with Thai massage. That led to another year of research and the second edition of the book Thai Massage the Thai Way: Healing Body and Mind published in 2007.
Jan and Noo established Yogananda Foundation in 2006. The foundation receives endowment from TMC, and general public. The foundation started the disabled center at Chiang Dao district in Chiang Mai province, Thailand to help over 100 members and support four other disabled groups in Thailand.
TMC offered Thai massage training to the disabled, their family members, and disabled centers staff. This has been the miracle relieve to their illnesses. Some are able to walk after being disabled from stroke, and many are thinking clearer after being born with mental disorder.
Jan originated the “Earth Bag” (hand painted cloth bag by disabled) project for people with all types of disabilities to enjoy their daily activities that earn them better health, happiness, pride and income. The Earth Bag project is slowly spreading the message of
“proud living” and “joy in helping” through out Thailand and the world.
