‘Pi’ is a term denoting someone older than your self but not as old as, say, your parents’ generation. So her name is ‘Bok’.
Pi Bok is our massage therapist and has been for many years now. She is very experienced at Thai massage and gets right down deep into the tissues. She can also do oil massage and herb massage. When needed she helps out with other jobs around the Retreat and she likes to come with us when we arrange outings and social events. Pi Bok is very friendly. She is ethnic Shan but was born in Thailand. She speaks both languages and reads Thai fluently. She also speaks a little English.
Pi Bok is widowed with an adult daughter and son.
