Hands Free Thai Massage
Online Training Course
Learn massage skills that make your work easier while protecting your hands, health, and your massage career
Massage therapy is a wonderful and transformational profession. Therapists enjoy their jobs much more than most professions, and they literally contribute to the well-being of the world.
But...here is a fact:
Massage is a career with a high drop-out rate. Why? One reason is that it can be hard on your hands and your body, especially for small therapists working on large clients.
What can cause problems with your body?
Here are a few possible causes:
Some therapists never develop serious problems, some face health issues soon, and for some it's an ongoing low-level concern. The question is this: What can be done about it?
Most massage therapists have to confront this issue sooner or later.
Our hands are our main tools. Here is the balancing act:
- How much work can you get out of your hands without risking the health of them?
- How strongly can you work to satisfy your client without endangering your hands?
- How long will you last in your chosen profession if your hands start to tire and wear out?
However you DO NOT have to make such choices.
There is a better way!

5 reasons why Thai Massage can help with the therapist's health and well-being
Thai Massage can be like a "massage therapist's career saver insurance policy".
My personal story
Shama Kern, founder of
Thai Healing Massage Academy
Over two decades ago, when I first started my Thai Massage career, I had a big problem which later turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
In Thai Massage schools you are typically taught to do a lot of strong thumb pressing along the energy lines on the legs, arms, and back.
I worked based on these teachings, and within one year I developed a painful thumb joint inflammation which made it impossible to do all this thumbing work.
Can you imagine - a massage therapist who has limited use of his hands! I had two choices: Either give up on my new career (which I totally loved), or come up with a better way.
Fortunately Thai Massage offers plenty of options for using many other body parts besides your hands. But they are rarely taught in an organized way, just in bits and pieces, and not in an in-depth way.
So I made it my mission to organize and refine and improve all these health-preserving and career-saving techniques.
The result was a unique online course which has helped hundreds of therapists to continue what they loved to do - but in a better, healthier, and more therapist-friendly way.

Benefits of Hands Free Thai Massage
This course is like an insurance policy for your hands
A normal insurance policy pays after the damage has been already done. However the Hands Free Massage 'policy' makes sure that you won't develop problems in the first place. It’s a prevention policy.
What is this course and what is it not?
This Hands Free Thai Massage course is not meant to be a stand-alone massage system. It complements your massage by giving you better tools and more options. Those techniques do not just preserve your health, but they add an entire new skill set to your massage.
Specifically - what this course will do for you
Questions and answers about Hands Free Thai Massage
> Click on question to reveal answer <
Question: Does the hands free training material only work for Thai Massage?
Answer: Although it was specifically developed for Thai Massage, the techniques will also work in other massage systems that are done on a floor mat like Shiatsu. Many of the techniques also work on a table.
Question: I don't have problems with my hands. Does this course still benefit me?
Answer: You don’t just buy this course once you have problems. You invest in it to make sure that you never develop any problems.
But this course is not just for prevention. It will teach you many unique, useful and powerful massage techniques. Even if your hand’s health will never be an issue, you will still get full value from this course.
Question: Do the hands free techniques only work on the floor or also on a table?
Answer: The forearm and elbow techniques work on a table as well, however the knee and foot techniques are best done on a floor mat unless you have a wide table and can climb up on it.
If you work on a floor mat, you will be able to use ALL techniques in this training program. If you work on a table, you will be able to use many techniques, but not all of them. However this course also includes a bonus course with 22 unique hand techniques, so you will get good value out of this training even if you only work on a table.
Question: Who is this course for? How do I know if it is right for me?
Answer: This is not a beginner’s massage course. You will not learn a specific massage modality from A to Z.
Hands Free Massage is meant for professional therapists who are serious about protecting their career and their health. If you want to learn to use your own body more skillfully than you ever thought possible, or if you want to add powerful therapeutic techniques to your work, this program is for you.
Question: What makes this course unique?
Answer: Hands Free Massage does not require any gadgets or props like chairs, ropes or bars to hold on to. You won't be walking on people either.
This course is designed for real-life professional massage therapy for everyday normal clients. The Hands Free techniques are especially useful for large, heavy and stiff clients.
They are essential if you are much smaller than your client!
This course also includes many highly effective rocking moves. It is the only training which teaches practical hands free massage in combination with gentle motion based rocking techniques!
Question: How are the techniques demonstrated?
Answer: All techniques are demonstrated in the traditional Thai Massage style on fully dressed persons on a floor mat, but many of them can be used in other massage styles on a massage table as well.
What about certification and CEUs?
We offer two types of certificates:
One is a Certificate Of Achievement. This is available for all students worldwide. *
The other one is a CE certificate with 8 NCBTMB approved CEUs. *
This is only useful for licensed US therapists who need to renew their licence.
* Both certificates require enrollment and qualifying.
What's your career worth?
All this will not be an issue anymore once you
become a hands free massage therapy expert.
“The course far exceeded my expectations in every way. Fantastic value for money, brilliant teaching, very good quality videos that are easy to access and second to none service in terms of tutor-student interaction.
You get so much more than you think you are paying for. I really think Shama’s work has revolutionized distance learning and proved that it can be a very effective way of learning when combined with such personal attention and care.“
Ayurvedic yoga therapist
“I have taken many different massage courses over the past 12 years, including medical massage courses.
But none of the other instructors focused on the importance of the quality of touch. Thank you so much Shama for the awesome job you do with your courses!”
"My favorite part was using my knee. I’ve been a massage therapist for 14 years and it’s such a relief to have another body part to work with…Give that upper body a break!!
I especially loved the hip stretch while my knee was pressing on the glutes. That was really creative, easy to do and according to my husband, felt amazing."
"Thank you for including so many therapist-friendly methods in your teaching.
I used to have to do a lot of self-work on my hands and arms because of the stress of using my thumbs so much. Developing these new habits will be of huge benefit to me."
"I am excited about this course. I am ready to incorporate techniques that give my thumbs and wrists some rest…. Hands free massage is a brilliant way to get maximum results with a small amount of effort.
Thank you so much!"

“ Shama you are amazing! You have such a commitment and compassion for what you do!! I have enjoyed your videos immensely.
I am a visual learner so your videos are the perfect way for me to learn. I look forward to continuing with your online courses."
Massage therapist and reflexologist
“ I have been busy with clients and feeling a bit more confident with my new techniques. Definitely have a long way to go, but I have been getting some awesome feedback.
Can't wait for the next module! I love the fact that I can go back and watch previous modules whenever I want. The course is worth every penny, and I let everyone know how great it is!"
“ Thai Massage feels good to me because I am using my body weight and fluid movements instead of muscles. After learning western deep massage I really appreciate this. I enjoyed learning another way to warm up the legs besides using my hands.
My hands have gotten really tired lately. I am glad I now know how to use my forearms because my thumbs have gotten sore from western massage. I am working on using my body more effectively to have power instead of over-stressing my hands, especially my thumbs."
