" Thank you for your dedication and teaching of online Thai Massage. I cannot express how glad I am that I have taken several of your courses.
The learning has opened doors I never thought possible… what I accomplished was amazing…I am now marketing Thai Massage as much as Swedish massage. "
Heather Park, massage therapist
" I have to admit that I would never have believed I could receive such a good training online. I have always been one of those folks who prefer to go to trainings or immersions.
Yet here I am, learning, practicing and engaging. I LOVE the pacing of the course, and the fact that I can go back and look at something again and again, often in a slightly different way. "
Kavita Lori Richardson, physical therapist
"I have really been sinking into the essence of this bodywork and why it is so effective compared to other modalities.
New clients often remark that it is the best massage they ever had, and that it is hard to put into words the depth by which they feel transformed or moved by it."

Complete Thai Massage course features
This course is much more than just learning techniques and sequences. It is more like a learning experience of a beautiful healing art, it's therapeutic value, it's cultural background, and the healing system of Thailand.
The course modules contain much more than a demonstration of techniques. Every module is a well-rounded learning experience which contains 3 elements:
This element consists of the training where you learn the entire system of Thai Massage - all the techniques, positions, skills, body mechanics, etc. This is also the section that counts for certification.
This element includes additional training, preparations for practice, tips about choosing a mat, contraindications, certification, dealing with pain issues, and interviews with other Thai Massage teachers.
This element is a fascinating virtual journey to Thailand.
You can watch actual Thai Massage sessions in Thailand, observe Thai festivals, and learn what makes Thai Massage different and unique.
All your courses materials are accessed in your own membership portal. One new course module becomes available every 3 days.
You own all the course materials. Your access does not expire. If you want, you can also download the training materials.
The 35 main training modules take 3.5 months to complete. With all bonus materials, the total course duration is 5.5 months.
You don't have to keep up with the course, but work at your own pace and take as long as you like. You own the course for life.
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I am writing to endorse Shama Kern's Complete Thai Massage online course. I have enormous respect for his skills as an educator as well as for his hands-on Thai Massage skills.
After viewing his comprehensive course, I feel that he has the qualities of a natural educator: genuiness, warmth, compassion and integrity. In short, he is the most remarkable educator I have ever met.
If you want to experience the ultimate in Thai Massage online training... this is the program for you! I have always wanted to learn more about Thai Massage but have been disappointed by some of the short 'in person' classes or DVDs that are on the market.
Shama has such a reassuring approach to Thai Massage. You see each move broken down into slowly repeated pieces which are easily remembered.
The offering of alternative move options gives you the flexibility to take what you learn and adapt it to your own style and routine. This material has brought my bodywork skills to a whole new level!
Shama’s online training videos are a valuable resource for anyone, new or experienced, wanting to improve their knowledge and technique.
Even though I am a long-time practitioner and Thai Massage teacher and have produced my own guidebooks and videos, I still find his material to be extremely helpful, and I can highly recommend watching them often, to anyone.
They are a valuable contribution to the evolution of this amazingly effective healing art.
From the first video I felt that Shama was a caring, heartfelt teacher. I loved the course!
I learned so much that is relevant and I have totally changed the way I work with people.
I love working on the floor, using other parts of my body. And even when I am working on a table, there is so much that I have been able to assimilate into my work with clients.

If you don't see it within 15 minutes, check your spam folder. This is almost always the culprit when emails 'don't show up'.
If you use gmail, check your promotions tab and drag the message from there to your primary tab to ensure that in the future all our emails will land in your primary tab.
The course is taught in the traditional Thai way, on floor mats. This allows for better ergonomics, more power with less effort, and more techniques than can be done on a table.
However many of our students adapt some of the course material to table work and blend it with other massage styles. This can easily be done with a little creativity.
Your access never expires. If you want to be totally sure that you will always have the course materials, you can download them.
Thai Healing Massage Academy has been in business for a long time (since 2001), and we plan to stay in business for many years to come.
However nobody can guarantee that a website will be literally available "forever". Therefore if you want to be 100% sure that you have lifetime access to the course materials, the only sure way would be to download it all.
However we plan to be around for many more years, so you won't have to worry about losing access to the membership portal anytime soon.
We have extensive documentation about this on our website:
No, this is not possible. It wouldn't make any sense. There are around 200 elements in this course - video, audio, and text.
It would go totally against our concept of providing a real education like in any real school. It would be a recipe for overwhelm and it would defeat the entire course structure.
The material is organized so that it lets you build your skills gradually in a logical way. You do need practice time between the main modules.
You can get a refund within 30 days from the purchase of the course by filling out a support ticket on the membership portal, or by emailing email@example.com. The refund will be processed within 24 hours normally.
Refund requests after 30 days will not be honored.
This course is unique. There is really nothing else like it available. It is not just information, it is education. It provides a multi-media Thai Massage learning experience which is much more in-depth than most live training.
There is no other online Thai Massage course which offers interactive and gradual learning with full instructor support, a forum, a facebook group, a student community, certification and CEUs, plenty of additional support material, and the genuine 'Thailand experience'.
You can even call the instructor - just try this with any other online Thai Massage training!
You don't have to keep up! It is entirely up to you how long you take to go through the training.
Let's say you get sick, or get married, or have a baby, or need to travel, or whatever else might happen - this course will always be there for you to pick up where you left off - and the support will also be there for you!
Our membership portal is very simple and easy to use. The first thing you see after you log in is a video which walks you through the site. It is not difficult at all.
In addition we have an extensive help section on our website which walks you through most common issues. If that's not enough, you can always get personalized support from us quickly.
So far every single one of our students managed to figure out the online learning system. So don't worry about that! And if you do need help, we are always happy to assist you.
No, all our courses stand on their own. While this course teaches the entire system of Thai Massage, you can decide to specialize in certain therapeutic applications or areas of the body. That's where our many other courses come in.
You can get friendly, speedy and helpful support by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or ?using the support section in your membership portal.
You will not talk to a support agent who doesn't really care about you, but you will get a response from the course instructor himself.
The completion of this program is just the beginning of something special in my future life, as I feel it. It was a very useful material, logically structured, easy & very interesting to learn. I am really impressed with your skills, energy & spiritual level.
I am really loving the way you have laid out the videos! I also like the focus on how things feel as opposed to just memorizing a bunch of moves.
I think that is how to really become good at anything that has to do with the body - feeling and tuning in.
I am so excited to have completed the Complete Thai massage course. This has been an enjoyable and remarkable addition to my massage career. I am grateful for you and all that you have to offer to those you teach.
You have a very calming voice and such a graceful flow of techniques. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your time and amazing lessons. I am blessed to have come across your course.
The most important things that I appreciated in this course are the emphasis in doing the practice as an art, the rocking techniques which relax my clients instantly, and to do the work with focused intention.
It has been so valuable to me doing a whole 90 minute session with very few stretches and still have my client totally satisfied with it. Having bought this online course has been most valuable to me.
