A Personal Note From Franklin

I’m glad you’re here to learn Rue-si Dat Ton. I first found out about Rue-si Dat Ton when I was enrolling in a massage course at Watpo Thai Traditional Medical School in Bangkok, Thailand. Before that, and like most people on the planet, I had absolutely no clue what it was. While studying Thai massage I often wondered, “How did all of this come about?”

When I learned that Rue-si Dat Ton was the foundation of Thai Traditional Massage, my interest was piqued! After that, I took a course at Watpo TTMS to learn their 18 techniques of RDT which really got me hooked.

My curiosity drove me to research and learn as much as I could. That was when I realized how rare and inaccessible this ancient, mysterious knowledge actually is (even among Thai people). “Why is Yoga world famous and yet nobody seems to know about Rue-si Dat Ton?”, I pondered. This question perplexed me greatly.

The answer(s) to my question became much more evident upon examining the history of Rue-si Dat Ton. Moreover, when I concluded that RDT was truly on the verge of going extinct – I felt compelled to save it from fading away, out of awareness forever.

In conclusion, it’s my hope that you’ll join me in practicing these amazing techniques and benefit greatly from this powerful, healing wisdom. Share this with others and help spread the word. Together, we can carry Rue-si Dat Ton with us into the future for generations to come.

Be Well, Franklin
