What do our students have to say about our online Thai Massage training?

" 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

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.

Liz Babcock

massage 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."

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.

How can you learn Thai Massage online?

Unlike DVDs, which are impersonal and have NO structured learning process, NO support, NO interaction, and NO community, we use a much more effective learning format which is not much different from an actual classroom. The main difference is that you practice with at partner at home instead of in a live classroom.

This is how our virtual classroom works:

  • You have your own membership portal with the course materials
  • You have access to the instructor for questions and feedback
  • You can join our student community in our facebook group
  • The training is released gradually, just like in any school
  • You work at your own pace without any overwhelm
  • You practice with partners while watching the video training 

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

You learn in an interactive environment with teacher support, access to fellow students, in the comfort of your home, at your convenience.

Thousands 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 20000 posts in our forum to prove it!

In Our Students Own Words


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.

Ariana Vincent - LMT, MTI, NCBTMB


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!

Jim Finch - Licensed massage therapist


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.

Deon De Wet - Thai Massage teacher


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.

Lynne Grieves - Ayurvedic therapist

Anastassia Kozina

Dancer and yoga teacher

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.

Lisa Simchison

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.

Denise Bruno

Massage therapist

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.

Carmen Hutchinson

Reflexologist and Shiatsu practitioner

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.
