This morning, I read that a date has been set by the Thai military Junta (led by General Prayut Chan-O-Cha who’s also the current prime Minister of Thailand) for democratic elections. Currently, it seems that elections will be held in February 2019 (at latest May 2019). That’s, in fact, almost 5 years after the military coup of May 201 [ Read More... ]

A known fact when it comes to being a Thai massage therapist is the connection made by the general public between (Thai) massage and the offering of sexual services, commonly know as “Thai Massage with a happy ending.” Especially for Thailand, the common idea is that commercial sex work manifests itself in Thai massage shops (and also [ Read More... ]
You might think that simultaneously studying Thai Massage and Teaching English in Thailand is perhaps a weird combo, but in this article I’ll explain why it isn’t at all. You see, when you’re hooked on learning Thai Massage and want to study in Thailand for a significant longer period, you’ll always have this darn visa thin [ Read More... ]
There’s a lot to say about the subject, so I’ll just kick off following my rather arbitrary thoughts. No real sequence here, but simply a reflection of what has happened in the past ten years and what’s currently happening in the Thai Massage teaching community in Thailand. In this article I basically only talk about Thai Massage trainin [ Read More... ]
In this article we’re going to touch some statistics and look at where we find the largest amount of Thai Massage schools and training centers in Thailand and where the least. We’ll also briefly look at what kind of Thai Massage courses and classes you find where. Before we start, some remarks: this post is about massage schools that are fully [ Read More... ]
If you are planning to take Thai Massage courses (or other studies) for a longer period (for instance several months up to a year or perhaps even more than a year), you may consider applying for a so-called 1-year Thai non-immigrant ED Visa (Education Visa). This may spare you a lot of hassle going in and out Thailand every 2 months or so, doing s [ Read More... ]
For ten years now I’ve been going forth and back to Thailand yearly, sometimes staying a month, sometimes a few months, sometimes quite a bit longer. In fact, I always went to Thailand to study Thai Massage and Reusi Datton, well—except then for the first time when I was just a “normal tourist” backpacking through South-East As [ Read More... ]
What we often don’t realize is that foreign students who go study Thai Massage in Thailand spot only a fraction of available schools and training programs. This is due to the Thai language (one doesn’t find the schools on the Internet or can’t ask for them), the fact that many training centers don’t have (a proper) Internet presenc [ Read More... ]
For the upcoming Songkhran festivities in Thailand (the Thai New Year’s festival), the Thai Government has some wise advice for Thai women: “To avoid sex assault, don’t be sexy.” The source of this statement is a Bangkok Post news article from March 22, 2018, an article which somehow hit the global headlines, although this is certa [ Read More... ]
Without doubt we live in extraordinary times. All so-called “sacred knowledge” and most of what used to be secret and kept within “esoteric circles” has in some way or the other materialized on the public stage. I suppose it’s due to the continuing globalization of human and environmental affairs, driven by a dazzling develop [ Read More... ]
