The primary goal of our courses is to learn Thai massage in its traditional form and to promote the understanding of Thai Massage in the holistic context of body, mind and energy. The classes include short lectures on easy to follow segments of Thai Traditional Medicine and demonstrations of the Thai massage routine. All students receive manuals with pictures of the Thai massage sequence, protocols and all materials needed in class.
