If you seek transformation beyond simple learning, bringing you into deeper awareness of your body, mind, and the enchanting dance they share, this Thai Massage course could be your pathway. Our annual course, starting again in October 2023, offers an immersive journey not just into the heart of Thai medical Buddhist traditions, but also into the core of who you are.


Rather than prescribing rigid techniques, our distinctive approach invites you to draw from the well of your own understanding, to move and operate instinctively in sync with natural biodynamics. This path isn't about a 'mind' training, but a 'Do' training — a journey going beyond learning to the realm of Being.


Our training stems from a natural philosophical perspective that helps you delve into your own body and mind, befriending both their limitations and potentials. Rather than merely treating symptoms, it fortifies you to comprehend the intricate web connecting you and the recipient of your healing touch.


Anticipate a year of in-depth introspection, and open-hearted exploration — of not just how you are in relation to a recipient's body, but also of the subtle influences of your posture, intention, and attitude. By aligning with the natural rhythm of the body, you channel your healing in a playfully curious and observant fashion. This is about embodying resilience without tension, flexibility without skeleton instability, and strength without rigidity.


Our program encourages the development of your individual personality in your bodywork, ensuring your experiences and knowledge are always relevant, resonant, and instructive for you. We believe in "doing", "feeling", and "experiencing" rather than sticking to conventional teaching methods. The philosophical aspect of the program guides you towards the core of your being, enabling you to respond and adapt during your massage work.


With us, you don't just learn - you grow, evolve, and transform. We weave together the physical and the philosophical, the theoretical and the practical, to create a training experience that respects the uniqueness of your journey while offering a roadmap for continued self-improvement.


This training is set to give you the therapeutic insight to keep sharpening yourself. As a graduate, you'll not only bear the mantle of a therapist but also carry within you the ability to make meaningful contact — the holistic understanding that allows for maximum healing impact.


Come, join us. Let’s explore together the heart of Thai massage, the essence of healing, and the depths of self-awareness.
