In this post, you’ll find an overview of Thai Massage trainers and Thai Massage schools in New York (NYC) and the surrounding area.
New York – NYC
New York City (NYC), or just simply New York, has since long been the most populous city in the USA. Today it counts a core city population of about 8.5 million people and about 20 million souls in the greater metropolitan area. NYC is one of the major cultural, financial, media, commercial, technology, educational, tourism, and sports centers of the world.
The prominent Statue of Liberty (a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States) greeted welcome to millions of immigrants, and is a world symbol and landmark of the United States.
Famous (at times even notorious) locations, places or institutions are Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, The Bronx, Staten Island, Times Square, Broadway, Central Park, Wall Street, Chinatown(s), and many renowned universities such as Columbia University, New York University, and the Rockefeller University.
The city also hosts the headquarters of the United Nations and is therefore an important center for international diplomacy.
Thai Massage Training Courses and Workshops
Thai Massage training usually comes in a broad variety of options: day or weekend training in specialized (therapeutic) topics, beginner or foundational training of one or two weeks, lengthy Thai Massage retreats, and professional training that covers months or even years (typically spread over the weekends), among others.
Keep in mind that there are many different styles of Thai Massage, so the training you’ll receive depends on the background and lineage of the Thai Massage teacher or school.
In the USA, Thai Massage — Nuad Thai or Thai Yoga Massage — is usually a massage modality studied as a Continuing Education topic or sometimes part of a regular College Massage Therapist Training that gives permission i.e. rights to work as a legal Certified Massage Therapist (in one or more U.S. states).
Below then an overview of what NYC and the surrounding region has to offer to the Thai Massage community and prospective students when it comes to Traditional Thai Massage schools, courses, classes, and workshops.
