Professional one day training course for Thai Massage, one of the branches of Traditional Thai Medicine and in Thailand is widely considered to be a medical discipline used for the treatment of a wide variety of ailments.
This is a very popular course with our students as not many therapists offer this giving you advantages over other therapists in your area to offer something new and in demand.
Thai Massage is also practiced by a number of non-medical massage practitioners in the spa and tourism industries. Since the 1990’s it has become a worldwide therapy and is quickly becoming one of the most popular treatments in Spas and massage clinics.

Thai Massage is an ancient and unique form of body therapy incorporating deep stretching and rhythmic compression in a ‘dance like’ transmission of energy. It affects the whole body by increasing flexibility, releasing both deep and superficial tension, and helping the body’s natural energy to flow more freely.
The experience of a Thai Massage leaves one feeling both relaxed and energised at the same time.
For those of you who love this course, as it is very popular and often students wish to take the more advanced course to follow, we offer level 2.
It has been known as passive yoga as the receiver can be put into yoga-like positions during a treatment. It is usually performed on the floor with the client wearing comfortable clothing that allows for movement. The massage practitioner exerts pressure on the body’s energy lines with the palms of the hands, the thumbs, the elbows and even the feet.
This Thai Massage course is for therapists with a full body massage qualification. One day insurable accredited course - maximum of 6 in a class keeping it small ensuring individual attention.

Why is our course so popular?
This is because the certification we give you allows a student to work with which ever particular brand they choose to purchase later and use with their clients.
Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.
This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.
This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us which is very restrictive which only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use what ever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you to good products but ultimately it is your choice!

Feedback from Ryan butterworth
I recently attended the Thai massage level 1 course. The course itself was very interesting and insightful and has given me the confidence to perform this treatment straight away! The information provided was brilliant and has left me inspired to not only proceed to the level 2 course but to expand my massage skills on other massage courses with gateway workshops I look forward to my next training! I will most definitely be back! I decided to book this course with gateway workshops because its affordability and smaller class size enabling me to get the best possible attention.
