 Why learn Thai Massage in Thailand?

Every year thousands of people come to Thailand to study Thai Massage. They have a number of reasons:

What Are Online Massage Training Advantages?

Online Massage training is part of a general trend towards speed, convenience, and affordability of massage education. Most people assume that online courses are inferior to classroom training since there is no hands on experience or direct feedback. This is not necessarily true.

When is online massage training a good choice?

However once someone has the basic knowledge of touching, anatomy, working with one’s own body (ergonomics) and other bodies, it becomes quite realistic to add to one’s knowledge in a non classroom environment.
