Handbook, certificate

Our courses emphasize hands-on training and practical experience. In addition to working with the instructor and other students, you can practice your new skills on Sirius Health client volunteers on the fourth training day.

This course covers practical aspects such as stretches, acupressure points, proper use of bodyweight and techniques using thumbs, palms, elbows and feet. Additional emphasis is placed on deep-focused abdominal (Hara) work. Upon completion students will be able to perform an effective 60 to 90 minute Thai massage.

We will submit the documentation for all students who complete the practical exams at the end of each course to ITM so that your training is recorded. You will then receive a certificate from ITM at no additional cost. You will then be eligible to continue studying Levels 3 to 5 in Thailand.
