Thai Massage Courses in Thailand for the Head, Neck & Shoulders
It’s interesting to see that many spas and massage parlors in Thailand offer Thai Massage treatment sessions for the Head, Neck & Shoulders. Yet, even more interesting is the fact that just a fraction of the Thai Massage schools in Thailand offer training courses in the modality.

But why interesting? Well… a Traditional Thai Massage session is basically a full-body massage covering the complete body and not just a part of it. Nevertheless, it makes sense to offer sessions that only treat the head, neck & shoulders, because these are parts of the body that suffer a lot from tension, especially nowadays in modern societies where work stress and prolonged sitting positions with strenuous activity for the eyes, head, neck and shoulders have become very common.

Moreover, a session can be given easily—the client can simply sit on a chair—and it can be done quickly (often it takes about 30 minutes) giving the client perhaps not structural relief, but at least temporary relaxation.

Thai Head, Neck & Shoulder massage courses are more often offered in the West than in Thailand. It goes nicely together with Chair massage and it’s a modality that scores well as an on-site treatment service for office workers.

Be that as it may, there are certainly Thai Massage schools in Thailand that offer separate Head, Neck & Shoulder massage courses. It’s an exception, for sure, because most of the massage work on the head, neck and shoulders is taught integrally being part of a full-body treatment in the general Thai Massage courses.

Below a list of the Thai Massage schools we’ve found in Thailand offering distinct Thai Head, Neck & Shoulders massage training courses. For more massage schools offering other Thai modalities, please visit our Training in Thailand page.
