Thai Massage Training Course in Cape Town

Course price - R 7 500

This year we will have the best of both worlds! The course will be held at the beautiful and tranquil Winery Road Forest Venue, with a forest and dam, nestled between the mountains and vineyards, just 30 min drive from Cape Town city centre, offering the perfect setting for your learning experience in this fine healing art. 

Completing this course in the Traditional Thai Massage (also known as Thai Yoga Massage) will teach you all about working magic on the energy/meridian lines (also known as Sen lines in Thai), acupressure points and yoga-type stretching. 

This practice allows the practitioner to go deep and to release great amounts of tension, blockages and stiffness in the physical and energetic body. 

This practice is a great healing modality to start with as a practitioner, to add to your modalities as an existing practitioner, or to deepen you yogic practice.

We are so excited to share and learn with you!
