Sabai De Ka is a Massage School located in Chiang Mai, near the Tha Phae Gate (on the eastern side of the Old City).
The school was founded by Thanyanet Pothamoon, mostly known for her nickname Kloy. Kloy is originally from Lamphun (a bit South of Chiang Mai and also part of the old Lanna Kingdom) and, as many Thais, started to learn Thai Massage from her mother when she was a teenager. After that, she developed her academic education and continued to develop her massage education and opened the school in 2004, offering Thai massage and Spa services and treatments (although we couldn’t find info about the Spa services offered on the website).
The school grew because of high demand, and Kloy started to offer courses also. Nowadays she focuses only on teaching – but the school still has a team that continues to provide spa services. According to their website, the school offers a personalized, relaxed and friendly atmosphere for the students, and is open daily from 10 am to 4:30 pm.
They offer a great variety of Thai Traditional Medicine and Massage courses, basically focusing on short term courses. So, those interested in short, introductory courses can do a 2 Days (10 hours) Traditional Thai Massage Course, a 1 day (5 hours) Oil Massage Course, or even a 3 hours “Head, Face, Back, Neck, Shoulder Massage Course”, among others. The longest course offered at the school is the 5 days (25 hours) Thai Massage Course. In addition, they offer a wide range of modalities, such as Thai Table Massage, Tok Sen, Herbal Ball Hot Compress, Hot Stone, Gua Sha, Cupping, etc.
The courses include a training manual and they offer a Sabai De Ka massage course certificate upon the course completion. All of the courses are taught in English and are available every day, however, it’s necessary to make a booking in advance. Important to state that they don’t accept booking by email or by phone, so you need to pass by the school to make your registration, pay and confirm your schedule at least 1-2 days before your desired start date.
However, you can contact them to check the availability on your preferred dates, and ask them to reserve a spot for you until the day you can pass by and officially register.
