■A role and reason for being of TTMA
As for each ministries and government offices concerned and the thing of cooperation, association of non profit organization Traditional Thai Massage Association Japan (TTMA) promoted healthy spread of Thailand ancient rite massages activity in Japan from administration than the establishment of November, 2000 as an approved public service corporation and gave up. TTMA conveyed the splendor of the Thai ancient rite massage through various activity in the society for the purpose of spreading Thai ancient rite massages. The activity crossed cooperation to a Thai operation training program living in Japan of the Kingdom of Thailand Embassy sponsorship, a tie-up with domestic and foreign schools, the holding of the Thailand culture event, the demonstration in the Thailand festival of the Kingdom of Thailand embassy sponsorship, the demonstration at the Tokyo international school, the demonstration by various events, the commentary through the mass media, the enforcement of the free trial seminar of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs authorization, a symposium with the many teachers of healing relations, no charge commencement of practice consultation to general various places, volunteer activity, the explanation of a right opinion for the Metropolitan Police Department police charge post in the many divergences. The Thai ancient rite massage became gradually major, and there became little prejudice, and it was it probably because there was the worth that I was accepted by the world. The industry spread at the same time, and even the many members of this association arrived at 2,000 levels. Original Thailand massage thinks that recognition what kind of thing is was able to get understanding from much while there is the strong prejudice that is "Thai massage = manners and customs" in the setup time of this association. The Thai ancient rite massage hits the jurisdiction of the public engine / hygiene ministry (equal to Japan, Ministry of Health and Welfare) in mother country Thailand, and ill treatment by the Thailand massage is performed as a part of the medical acts at the hospital attached to a thing of a university. The spread of the Thai ancient rite massage is different by climate and economic conditions of the each various countries in the world, the legal standard. Because there are national qualifications such as the acupuncture moxibustion massage massage shiatsu in Japan, a Thai ancient rite massage is the private enterprise qualification that does not belong to the category, positioning called the folk remedy. A private qualification has curing a bodily disorder by massage, manual therapeutics, chiropractic etc. and chiropractic, an aroma massage or reflexology, but enters a classification same as it. In such a private qualification, it was taken up much in the mass media by the splendor, and cognitive degrees increased as alternative medicine, preventive medicine rapidly. The significance of existence of TTMA (association of non profit organization Japan traditional thai massage) thinks that I was big if I express it from such an implication.
Furthermore, the situation of these days is different from a few years ago greatly, and, in the Thai massage market, a market is established as popular existence. Many stores do black management and fall into lack of serious therapist at the same time. Therefore I arrest you that a market entered into the second grade in association of Japanese traditional thai massage (TTMA) and promote facilities of the learning environment of the Thailand massage that I added to a store in the whole country. There is another reason for it. It is a private qualification, but it is the blind spot of the reason, but there is the purpose to restrain that schools transmitting easy, dangerous technology increase without belonging to the association daringly. I want to prevent students from being sacrificed by all means at the school of the simple business purpose. There is a threat that the Thai ancient rite massage often causes a dangerous accident. The visitor coming to the salon may not be 100% healthy body. I include the danger that leads to an unexpected accident by repeating the same work like a robot. I include such a crisis control, and the professional therapist must not neglect to learn it. TTMA gets this Thai massage industry ready and teaches the supplier whom morals lacked and thinks that it is necessary to increase the Thailand ancient rite massages that I am hygienic and am safe, and is healthy.
Many Japanese and a Thai living in Japan, Westerners came to hold the professional Thai massage therapist qualification of association of Japanese traditional thai massage (TTMA). The maintenance of the qualification is important to spread a Thai ancient rite massage definitely. The reason is because Thailand massage in itself may be regarded as alienation as a dangerous thing by performing a dangerous act to lead to a wrong act and accident as a Thai massage. I want to watch that a therapist based on a right way of thinking and safe management is active in the world in future. I think that it is a role of TTMA that people in the world can stream down the splendor of the Thai ancient rite massage and I am determined not to regret the trouble of that purpose and will administer it in future.
