Nothing epitomizes a Thai holiday more than a relaxing Thai massage

No trip to Thailand is complete without experiencing an authentic Thai massage. Using full-body stretching and deep massage techniques, Thai massages have traditionally been used to restore energy, lower blood pressure, improve circulation, treat a wide variety of ailments and contribute to one’s overall health and well-being. Believed to be over 2,000 years old, this ancient healing art still leaves people feeling relaxed, content and at ease with the world around them. 

High quality Courses specializing in Thai massage are ubiquitous and can be found all throughout Thailand. Accordingly, they have become popular stops on the learning holiday circuit. Some schools offer half-day or one-day introductory classes where you will learn the basics and get some practice on real subjects. Other schools have more in-depth programs that last for a week or longer and lead to certificates and qualifications in Thai massage.
