We believe that a good therapist needs to develop a sense of touch coupled with an anatomical understanding of the human body. To help our students do that, we take them on a journey exploring their bodies to deepen their experience and analysis. We do that by ensuring:

  • One-on-one with instructor for personal attention
  • Anatomical Focus for easy comprehension
  • Develop your sense of touch with tactile skill improvement exercises
  • FREE Retraining (you can repeat this course for free as many times as you like!)

India's leading exponent of Thai Massage, Cyriac, will be the instructor for this course. Cyriac has nine years of experience in this modality and has over those years established a lineage of practitioners in the land where Thai Massage has its origins.

Course starts September 2nd to 5th. Class timings from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM daily
