The Thai Yoga Massage School of Thailand Metta in Bangkok carries several names: Thai Yoga & Healing Art Training Center, Thai Massage School Bangkok, and the Thai Traditional Medical Services Society Bangkok.
The school was founded in 2013 and is run by Master Kraijakkri Rungrojsakulporn aka “Master Kong.” His brother, Master Kraisign Rungrojsakulporn, is also part of the school, but mainly as a specialist in Thai Foot Reflexology.
Master Kong has a long track record teaching Thai Massage and Reusi Dat Ton. Before opening his own school, he was a teacher for the Suai Thai Massage School (Phuket island) which at the time was still located in Bangkok.
You can find Kong’s school not far from Asiatique The Riverfront, an open-air shopping center which is situated at the banks of the famous Chao Phraya River. The school premises are small, yet cozy, friendly and warm, and you will see Kong’s wife and son regularly hopping in and out the class room. Sometimes, Kong’s wife assists in Thai Massage training courses also.
Master Kong always works with small student groups and the courses are suitable for both Thai people and foreigners. Classes can be offered in Thai, English and Japanese.

Master Kong’s school offers Thai Yoga Massage training, Thai Foot Reflexology, and Ruesi Datton (Traditional Thai Yoga, Ascetic Yogi or Hermit Stretching) courses. For all training modalities, the school also provides teacher training courses which gives students the ability to become an affiliated instructor.
