Thai Massage is 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. 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.

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.

Feedback from our Students

Feedback from Tracey Hodge

My tutor was very welcoming and supportive. She is a very knowledgeable lady who was more than happy to answer any questions and she spent a lot of time going over practical skills to ensure we were comfortable with the techniques and confident using them. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 2 days working under her expert eye.

The Level 1 (and later part 2) Thai body massage courses were very thorough and highly informative. There was plenty of time to practice techniques until we were comfortable with them and I left feeling confident in my ability to provide good treatments for clients. The 2 days were exactly what I hoped they would be. I feel they were very good value for money and I would definitely consider attending another course in the future.

Manuals were very useful both as a course accompaniment and as a reference tool afterwards. The use of photographs and diagrams for all techniques was very helpful and they were easy to follow.


Feedback from David Sheppard

Tutor was excellent. Friendly, calm, approachable and easy to get on with. Delivery of information and practical demonstrations all very good. I think this last session (Thai Massage Level 2) was particularly successful because we all got a chance to work with an experienced person - and share ideas. (There were 5 students - one of whom was pretty experienced in Thai Massage) and the tutor made up the 6th body. Given the class dynamic that worked extremely well. Have done courses where the tutor was not terribly hands on before - and found it less successful than my Gateway tutors approach.


Feedback from Karen Spenceley
Fantastic tutor went to great lengths to make sure I understood the course. She is very knowledge and thorough. The course was delivered is a non-judgemental and informal way. I loved it!!!
