Apple’s Massage School, also known as Apple’s Massage Experience or Apple’s Spa Experience – School of Massage, is located on popular Koh Samui island (Thailand’s second largest island), near Chaweng Noi Beach, and it offers Thai Massage training and an extensive list of Spa treatments.
The school is named after its founder, owner and teacher Apple Singsuk – who studied at Wat Pho and is a Thai Traditional Medical Services Society (TTMS) affiliated Thai Massage instructor. She has been working in the massage industry in Thailand for more than twenty years, and started to learn Thai Massage since she was a child, from her mom.
It’s a small school and the group size for the courses is also small (maximum 4 students per class), perfect for those who want a bit more of personal attention from the teacher.
The school offers four type of training courses, as follows:
- Thai Foot Massage & Reflexology
- Thai Herbal Compress Massage (Luk Pra Kob)
- Thai Massage (Nuad Thai)
- Thai Oil Massage & Aromatherapy
All the courses have a duration of 30 Hours (6 hours per day, 5 days a week with a one hour break in between) and are certified by the Thai Traditional Medical Services Society.
During the one- hour break you are free to bring your own food or go out to eat, however the school also offers homemade cooked Thai food, and you can make a reservation for the whole course week for a fixed price. In fact, Apple actually owns a Cookery School on Koh Samui as well.
The courses can be started every Monday, with reservations made beforehand. To make a reservation it’s necessary to arrange with them a talk/consultation via Whatsapp to sort out the details, and then make a (non-refundable) down-payment via Paypal.
In addition, the school also offers 1 day (or longer) non-certified courses, with prices that vary depending on the group size. So, you can pretty much arrange with them a personalized course if you wish.
