" Ideal teacher with ideal training, high quality video course materials and learning strategy, good text materials, very reasonable prices, great live support from the first interaction on!
My expectations are high and I am sure that they will be exceeded.

Liviu-Nicolae Grumeza, massage therapist

" My sessions are going very well and your teaching material is second to none. Your videos are an ideal length to learn without too much pressure.

I am learning so many new techniques – it’s just wonderful! I am so pleased I decided to buy your on-line course.

Brenda Cockburn, Massage therapist

4 Reasons Why Thai Massage Can Be An Excellent Career Choice For You

  • It's the most practical and flexible massage system on the planet. It can be done anywhere easily, no massage table required, no oil, no draping sheets, no undressing
  • It is the most therapist-friendly massage style! No stressing your thumbs and wrists, no danger of burning out your hands. You learn to work elegantly with many body parts.
  • It's one of the hottest and most in demand massage therapies worldwide with an excellent income potential.
  • It adds an entire world of therapeutic value through stretches and manipulations which don't exist in most other massage systems.
John Doe UI/UX Designer

"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."

Liz Babcock, massage therapist

Why Learn Thai Massage Online?

Much lower cost

You might not be able or may not want to spend thousands of dollars on high-cost live Thai Massage courses. Also there are no travel/accommodation costs and no time off work.


No good Thai Massage school or teacher near you? Online training is available wherever you are! It fits into your daily life, you study at your own pace without pressure or deadlines.

No need to leave home and travel to a course

Do you have a job, obligations, family to take care of, young children, or simply don't want to leave home and travel?
With online training you don't have to go anywhere!

Permanent access to the training material

After a live course you have no more access to the information and can easily forget what you learned. However you own our online material and can review it any time - even years later.

Thanks for being a great teacher and organizing your courses the way you do.

They are really so well laid out and logical. Best of all, I can hit replay and watch it several times, try it, watch it again, and so forth.

I am continuing to learn and experience the wonderful art you have taught me. Without you I never would have been able to have such an experience.

Randy Bryan, massage therapist

"Well, I am hooked already. I just signed up for the Complete Thai Massage course and watched module one. I am most impressed! Fantastic quality of content and extremely well taught. Shama, you make it fun, interesting and professional. It's a pleasure to have you as a tutor."

We Are A True Online Learning Academy!

Thai Healing Massage Academy specializes in high quality online training. This is not just our back-end product - it is our expertise and priority to teach students from all over the world online.

We have many years of experience in providing the best online training environment. And we have earned a high level of trust by our students.

For me personally this is much more than a business – it is my passion and my labor of love. My commitment is to bring you the best, most comprehensive and most effective Thai Massage video training you can find anywhere!

I have been teaching students successfully since 2001. Want proof? There are over 15000 posts in our forum from students writing about their experience with our training materials. 

What is our style of Thai Massage?

  • It's a beautiful, graceful, flowing style which is a joy to practice
  • It combines traditional Thai Massage techniques with elements from yoga, rocking movements and intuitive therapeutic skills
  • It focuses on excellent body mechanics to preserve the health of your body, your hands and wrists. This makes it about the most therapist friendly system you can find.
  • It provides a profound, enjoyable, painfree healing experience for your clients.

This course is much more than a set of mechanical massage techniques. You will learn to creatively, intuitively and gracefully adapt the techniques to the needs of your clients. It is a journey into the world of Asian healing arts and mind-body transformation.

This course teaches you the actual living, breathing healing art which has been practiced in Thailand for centuries to help people with their health issues.

This is a proven system where you will learn highly refined therapeutic skills which have been successfully used by millions of Thais for hundreds of years.

Complete Thai Massage is a sophisticated, convenient and effective online training program. It is not just a basic course, but covers all levels, including very advanced material. 
It is suitable for beginners AND experienced Thai Massage therapists.

PLEASE NOTE: The Complete Thai Massage course is NOT a compilation of all our training programs. It is a stand-alone program, different from all our other courses.

Can you learn Thai Massage from an online course?

This depends on the format. Learning from a DVD may give you 100 techniques all at once, but it can be overwhelming because there is no structured learning process, no support, no interaction, and no community. That's why we do NOT use the DVD format for the Complete Thai Massage course.

Our online Thai Massage training program is very different!
It uses a much more effective learning format:
  • You have direct and unlimited access to the instructor
  • You get real feedback - your questions are answered promptly
  • The training schedule is gradual (no overwhelm!). You get just the right amount of training material per session
  • You learn in an interactive environment with access to fellow students via our forum and private facebook group
  • Hundreds of our students from all over the world have successfully learned Thai Massage through this system
  • Our success rate is much higher than the average online course. We have over 15,000 posts in our forum to prove it!

"For me this course is perfect. I couldn't be more pleased. You have really provided a wealth of value: The best training with unsurpassed support and friendship, all at a very fair and reasonable cost.

This allows this gift to be attainable by so many who would otherwise not be able to have access to learning this beautiful art."

Complete Thai Massage course features


Your course is delivered via email in the form of downloadable videos and text documents. The main training videos arrive every 3 days to give you enough time to practice without any overwhelm.

Each video contains 25 to 30 minutes of detailed explanations, close up video, and step-by-step instructions just like in a classroom.


Did you ever attend a live training, and a couple of months later you realized that you forgot a lot of it already?

This can never happen with this course, since you download and own all the material. You can always go back to a previous session and review it again, even years later


It takes 3.5 months to complete the main 35 course modules and the certification or CEU program, if you decide to enroll in it. 

Including all bonus courses, you will receive training material for more than five months. This is a VERY comprehensive and complete program.


This course contains the same information that you would learn in a multi-week live training.

The training is designed to fit into your normal life.

You learn at a relaxed pace and at your own schedule. There is NO stress, NO hurry, NO pressure, and you have enough time to absorb everything.


This is the only fully supported Thai Massage online course on the market. Personal support can make all the difference!

You have direct access to a highly experienced instructor via email, skype, facebook group or our popular online forum. You also can interact with other students.


This course is named "Complete Thai Massage" because it contains ALL training material for becoming a competent Thai Massage therapist. 

It is not a level one training where you later need to buy all the other levels. This course contains all levels and is all you need.

Is this course right for you?


  • Massage therapists who want to add Thai Massage as a new modality
  • Thai Massage therapists who want to increase their skill level
  • Yoga teachers who want to add Thai Yoga Massage to their classes or want to create a new income stream by offering Thai Massage sessions to their students
  • Physical therapists, personal trainers and pilates instructors who want to add a new element to their work
  • Anyone who does not have access to a local Thai Massage school
  • Anyone who is looking for a more convenient and less costly solution for learning Thai Massage


  • You live near a good Thai Massage school and have the time and the money to attend live training
  • You don't like visual learning
  • You don't have the discipline and the will power to practice the online material in your home
  • You are mostly looking for a quick, easy and cheap way to get CEUs
  • You have zero healing arts or yoga experience and want to start a new career -  best to start with a live course
  • You are looking for a certificate which will legally make you a licensed massage therapist - no online course can do that
  • You are very stiff and overweight

In our students own words

Ariana Vincent, LMT, MTI, NCBTMB, Nationally Certified Therapist and Instructor

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I am writing to endorse Shama Kern's Complete Thai Massage video 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.

Jim Finch, Licensed massage therapist

If you want to experience the ultimate in Thai Massage video classes... 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!

Thank you so much for your course! It was way more than I could have possibly imagined.

I can hardly believe it was all online! I will definitely be taking more of your courses in the future.

Lauren Mahaney 
Yoga teacher & massage therapist

I love this style of learning. For me, it is the perfect way to learn!
I can learn at my own pace, go back and review, and practice as many times as needed. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Nancy Fairbanks 
Massage therapist

I received a call from an airline pilot who was having shoulder pain. Even after seeing a chiropractor he did not get relief.
However after using some of your techniques - especially the scapula work - he was amazed at the difference. 
I really enjoyed being able to help him with your useful and helpful techniques.

Marilyn Foley 
Massage therapist

I found the Complete Thai Massage course to be an amazing investment. I am absolutely amazed how well the course is delivered.

Now after only 4 months and with no previous massage training I have the confidence and knowledge to do Thai Massage. My friends, family and co-workers thank you, Shama!

Kyle Glassford Hobby massage therapist

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.

Lynney Grieves 
Ayurvedic therapist

I have been incorporating many of the techniques I learned in the Complete Thai Massage course with all of my clients, and as a result my clientele has increased!

My clients love the techniques! And I love the variety of options the course has given me, as well as the wonderful information on how to have the magical touch with massage.

Shannon Lemire 
LMT, Thai Massage therapist, Reflexologist

"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." 
Anastassiya Kozina, dance and yoga teacher

"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."
Lisa Simchison, yoga teacher

John Doe UI/UX Designer

"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."
Denise Bruno, LMT

John Doe UI/UX Designer

"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."
Carmen Hutchinson Certified Reflexologist & Certified Shiatsu Practitioner
