Not only the quality of a Thai Massage course, but surely also the price is important to us. Everybody has a certain budget and a limited amount to spend accordingly. In this post we look at which Thai Massage schools and trainers in Chiang Mai offer the cheapest Thai Massage Beginner courses.
Mind that we don’t look at the quality of the schools and courses mentioned. Nevertheless, worth to mention, is the fact that among the list of 15 schools we’ve found to be the cheapest, you’ll encounter some of the most renowned Thai Massage schools of Thailand.
A note: Thai Massage Beginner courses carry a variety of other names, like for instance Thai Massage Introduction, Thai Massage Fundamentals, or Thai Massage Basic course. We remark also that a Thai Massage beginner course from a certain school may be among the cheapest, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that their other courses (like for instance Thai Foot Massage or Thai Herbal Compress Massage, etc) belong to the cheapest in their category also.
So, how did we go about? Well, first of all we’ve observed that there are various lengths (duration) of Thai Massage beginner courses. Some schools offer a 2-day beginner’s course, and others up to 12 days or even more. Secondly, a typical class day can consist out of 4, 5, 6 or more training hours.
Subsequently, we necessarily needed to calculate the Thai Massage course prices to an hourly cost. It means, for instance, that the absolute price for a 10-day beginner course may be higher compared to a 4-day course, but that the hourly rate for the 10-day course may be less (which in fact then, relatively, makes the 10-day course cheaper than the 4-day course).
Our calculations show that, as a rule, the cheapest Thai massage beginner courses have an hourly cost between 40 and 200 Baht (Baht is the Thai currency). When we average the prices of the Thai Massage beginner courses of the 15 schools we’ve found to be the cheapest, we come to an hourly rate of 142 Baht (3.74 Euros or 4.28 US Dollars). It would mean that a typical cheap 5-day Thai Massage course of 30 hours (5 times 6 effective hours per day) would cost about 4260 Baht ( 112.25 Euros or 128.37 US Dollars). Mind that we took the currency exchange rates of August 19, 2018.
Well, that’s it! Below you’ll find the list of 15 schools and trainers in Chiang Mai that offer the cheapest Basic Thai Massage courses.
