Our training program is intensive, enabling you to learn a great deal in a relatively short period. While many of our previous students completed the program successfully, we have observed that some found the pace challenging and experienced stress.

To address this, we have made an important change to the program structure. After the first four weeks of intensive training, we now include a one-week break. This week off allows you to rest, reflect on what you have learned, and return to the program refreshed and ready to absorb more knowledge.

We believe this change will enhance your learning experience and help you get the most out of our comprehensive Thai massage training. Our goal is to support you in becoming a skilled and confident practitioner while maintaining a healthy balance throughout your studies.
