Looking at the various European countries, we see that each country often has its major style or one or more predominant Thai Massage lineages taught. There are countries heavily Sunshine Network based, others more ITM Chiang Mai, Old medicine Hospital, or TMC School affiliated, and so on.
As Europe has such a diversity of cultures and countries, it’s also the place were many different styles of Thai Massage have evolved in past years. We’ll look closer into that in some other future postings on our site.
