Thai Massage Courses and Training on Koh Phangan

Published | Updated June 21, 2019

Thai Massage Courses on Koh Phangan
The Koh Phangan Island (or Ko Pha-Ngan) in the Gulf of Thailand is perhaps best known for its so-called Full Moon Parties at the Haad Rin Beach.

Although tourism is the main industry and still booming, the island fortunately has been able to conserve many unspoiled natural areas. The interior mountains are generally hard to access and more than 50% of the island is a national park with pristine rain-forest.

Koh Phangan has a highly spiritual atmosphere which is a remarkable contrast to its (infamously) wild Full Moon Parties. The island boasts many Buddhist temples and a dynamic spa, retreat, yoga and meditation industry. Thai Boxing Muay Thai camps and Thai Cooking Schools are abundantly present on the island too.

And what about Thai Massage? In fact, perhaps somewhat surprisingly, there are not that many full-fledged Thai Massage schools to be found on Koh Phangan. However—a number of spa retreats, resorts and training hosting centers do regularly offer Thai Massage training events also. Those training courses are generally given by invited or visiting teachers, offered in the tourist high season mostly, say November up to March.

The bigger part of visiting Thai Massage teachers originate from Europe, Australia, Canada and the United states, and Thai teachers are the exception. Nonetheless, there are certainly some local Thai Massage schools and teachers to be found that offer Thai Bodywork courses and workshops.

It’s obviously true that the real Thai Massage adapt would most likely be better off in Bangkok or Chiang Mai when it comes to choice of training, but on the other hand, Koh Phangan has a lot to offer which certainly compensates the lack of Thai Massage course varieties and styles.

Well then… let’s go take a look at what we’ve spotted on Koh Phangan. Below you’ll find a concise overview of the local Thai Massage schools and a choice of retreat centers.
