Bangkok boasts about seventy Thai Massage schools and trainers more or less accessible for foreigners. That’s a bit less compared to the number of schools in Chiang Mai (about a hundred trainers), but without doubt still quite a lot. In this article we’ll take a look at the best Thai Massage schools of Bangkok.

How to decide which schools are best? Well, that’s of course very subjective, depending very much on what a Thai Massage students wants and needs. We’ve written about that in a previous article.

Anyway, we’ve decided to take into account the international reputation of the massage school, the variety of Thai Massage and bodywork courses offered, and organizational aspects. Mind that this is only our current opinion, subject to change any time.

1. Shewa Spa

Shewa Spa is conveniently located in the Khao San Road area, the place where many tourists start there holidays or travels in Thailand. The Thai Spa Massage center offers both massage treatments and training courses.

Although the variety of offerings in training is limited, you’ll find the most popular trainings like Thai Massage, Thai Foot Massage, and Thai Oil Massage (all courses take 5 days, with a total of 20 hours)

9. Watpo Thai Medical Massage School

Of course—the Watpo Thai Massage school is perhaps the best known Thai Massage school in the world. An icon when it comes to Traditional Thai Massage. The school (part of the Chetawan Health Group) has several branches and massage service clinics in and around Bangkok and even a school branch in Chiang Mai.

As for the Thai Healing Arts, the school offers a General Thai Massage Course, Advanced Medical Thai Massage, Foot Massage Course, Oil Massage and Aromatherapy, Woman Healthcare Massage, Infant and Child Massage Course, Ascetic self-Stretching (Ruesi Datton) Course, a Thai Massage Experience Training, Professional Thai Massage for Health (26 days), and a Professional Thai Massage Therapy Course of 200 hours (5 weeks).

The branch at Salaya is an on-site retreat center where one can stay during the course period and take the Professional Thai Massage for Health (26 days) and Professional Thai Massage Therapy Course (5 weeks).

Needs to be said that Watpo’s websites are (always) out of date and certainly not complete, but apparently they can simply get away with it thriving on their fame.
