For instance, the 2-week beginners massage course starts from 8,500 baht at Sunshine Massage School. Other, more traditional schools are the ITM (International Massage School), where a lot of Thais learn the art of Thai massage. Other good places to learn include Bangkok, Koh Phangan, and Phuket.We heard great things about Sunshine Massage School, where travelers can even learn Thai massage from Lahu hill tribesmen in the Northern mountains. Many people in Thailand still have not quite learned English, and this includes massage instructors.
The one con that you may need to bear in mind is if you are looking for a certificate that you can use back home, a lot of the massage schools do not offer internationally accepted massage courses.
