Traditional Thai Therapy Massage Course by Waree

What this Thai Traditional Therapeutic massage course is  about:

This basic therapy massage training is designed to share Traditional Thai wisdom and approach.

We will go through 15 common symptoms and what an experienced masseuse can do safely to help.

These points structure each topic/problem we will study-  Symptom and causes

   -  Observation the person by Interview
   -  Physical check-up
   -  Healing plan, possible methods
   -  Interdiction and cautious
   -  How to apply massage techniques and points
   -  Evaluation after treatment
   -  Suggestion after treatment and self-stretching

It is not about very complex massage techniques but more about getting to understand the Traditional Thai System to look at a patient.    

Students will learn about basic diagnostic principles according to the theory of Thai Traditional Medicine in a short and easy way to comprehend.  It is based on the balance of 4 elements that our bodies require to exist and change.

Learn how to observe the body

by interviewing, observing the patient movements, pulse detection and symptoms diagnosis of the patients before performing the massage.

This should help the masseur to plan the treatment and massage techniques that are compatible with the symptoms. Each person who comes for massage will potentially have a different treatment even if their symptoms are similar to other cases.

Therapist may need to give some advice on how to treat their symptoms shown by other methods than what they propose, or to consult a more skilled colleague.

Above all, we should also have an attitude to work with morality and ethics at the same time.


As Organs are all connected in the same system, the elements are an illustration of the relationship and balance within the body

It is believed the illnesses create and feed upon unbalance.

Yet, losing the balance of elements in the body also affected by seasons, ages, time, place of residence, certain behaviors, and specific elements of each person. 

Unbalance if not properly identified, can lead to illness.

So, we will focus on balancing the body by using traditional Thai medicine such as massage, sauna and herbal medicines combined with behavioral moderation to help to balance the physical and mental health.


Massage practice

It is useful to be able to borrow and combine techniques from both common massage and from the more encoded Royal Thai Massage.

•  Chaloeisak or common massage relies on the general knowledge, experience and creativity of the practitioner. There are much less formalities or rituals in the treatment. It is also common use beside the fingers, the knees, feet, or elbows.   

•   Royal Thai Massage is a form of massage inherited from the palace and high ranking officials in the past. Only fingers and palms can be uses.
The masseuse must be strictly mannered and be focusing on specific points (acupuncture) of each part on the body in order to improve circulation.

Massage techniques

We will focus on the treatment of each of 15 classic symptoms, combined with a more generally relaxing massage in order to balance both the physical and mental effects of the patients.   

It is a chance to work on your own symptoms. You could also bring a person to the course for you to work on under the teacher's supervision.

Learn to give advice to patients.

Illnesses that have accumulated for a long time, often can not immediately find a solution. Often, a series of treatments is needed.
As much as possible, patients need to change the behaviors causing or feeding the illness and need to properly take care of themselves too. It becomes important to be able to advise specific exercises for those illnesses or symptoms, it is part of the treatment and promote better results.

Be calm and observe your own expectations.

We will practice an important principle in Thai massage therapy:

Do not be impatient, Do not set too many expectations.

We are empty-handed doctors. We are here to observe and encourage the beautiful self-maintenance mechanism that is each person's body.
