ORAPIN ANUPAT, OWNER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF BAAN THAI  

 

ORAPIN DREAMT OF PERFORMING TRADITIONAL NATURAL MEDICINE FOR THE PURPOSE OF HEALING PEOPLE  AND DECIDED TO CHANGE HER CAREER IN HER MID-ADULTHOOD.

LIVING IN THE CITY OF LONDON MADE HER REALISE THAT STRESS AND BODY PAIN, AS WELL AS  DYSFUNCTIONAL FREEDOM OF BODY MOVEMENTS, WERE  MADE WORSE BY THE HARD WORK AND INTENSE LIFE STYLE OF CITY LIVING. SHE REALISED THAT OFFICE WORKERS AND MANUAL WORKERS COULD BENEFIT FROM STRESS-RELEASE TREATMENTS FOR THE MIND AND BODY.

 

SO ORAPIN WENT BACK TO THAILAND, HER HOMELAND, IN 2007 TO STUDY AT THE NUMBER ONE TRADITIONAL MEDICAL SCHOOL OF THAILAND, THE  WAT PHO MASSAGE SCHOOL.

IN 2008, ORAPIN OPENED HER FIRST BUSINESS,  WORKING FROM HOME, WITH TWO MASSAGE BEDS IN ONE OPEN ROOM ON THE GROUND FLOOR, THEN IN 2011 SHE MOVED TO A BIGGER HOME WITH TWO ROOMS ON THE GROUND FLOOR, CONTAINING SINGLE MASSAGE BEDS EACH. 

 

DURING THAT TIME SHE ESTABLISHED A LOYAL CUSTOMER BASE OF LONDONERS ENJOYING THE STRESS RELIEF AND MIND AND BODY BENEFITS OF HER MASSAGE THERAPIES.

 

MANY LEADING SPORTS PEOPLE HAVE BENEFITED FROM REGULAR MASSAGE TREATMENTS TO MAINTAIN THEIR HIGH LEVEL SPORTS PERFORMANCE AND CLIENTS FROM ALL OVER LONDON COME TO WIMBLEDON TO THE BAAN THAI SPA AS WORD HAS SPREAD ABOUT THE HEALING AND HEALTH BENEFITS OF ORAPIN'S THERAPIES.

 

NOW IN 2020, BAAN THAI IS LOCATED IN A SHOP LOCATED IN SOUTH WIMBLEDON. (2 MINS WALK AWAY FROM SOUTH WIMBLEDON TUBE STATION)

ORAPIN ALSO SHARES A STRONG LOVE AND PASSION FOR SOUTH-EAST INTERIOR DESIGNS, WHICH INSPIRED HER TO DECORATE THE SHOP WITH SOUTH-EAST INSPIRED PAINTINGS, TROPICAL PLANTS, STATUES, THAI NORTH AND SOUTH TEXTILES, WITH BALI-COLOUR STYLE WALLS.

HER SEA-SHELL CURTAINS AND HANGING MOBILES,  HAND-MADE IN THAILAND,  ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR SALE THROUGH ETSY AT SEASHELL_DESIGNS.
