To study Traditional Thai Massage in Thailand with Thai teachers is without doubt a special, cultural experience. Nevertheless, most Thai Massage schools, teachers and courses are in fact found in Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
So naturally, if you would like to combine your beach holidays in Thailand with learning Thai Traditional Massage, your choice would be to travel way up north to Bangkok or Chiang Mai.
Or maybe not?
Well, although the islands in the south of Thailand boast less Thai Massage schools and courses than Bangkok or Chiang Mai, there are certainly still enough options to be found. Let’s take a look at Phuket, the number one holiday island destination in Thailand.
In Phuket we’ve found more than 10 centers were you could take a Thai Massage course. There are perhaps more schools to be found, but keep in mind that certainly in Thailand a significant part of the massage training venues are not visible on the Internet. You would need to inquire locally, visit Thai temples (some teach Thai Massage) and ask around in the many Thai Massage salons and Spas.
Okay then, below the Thai Massage schools we’ve found in Phuket.
