Along with explanation and demonstration of each position by the teacher, the students will also learn both by receiving massage so that they get the Thai Massage experience and understand the correct position, points and the level of pressure to be given, and will also give Massage to others to get the firsthand experience of Massage. All this will enhance their learning process.
All this will be evaluated by the teacher, where the needed guidance and corrections will be given to the students. The student will be able to practice to get sufficient training to be able to learn all the techniques and positions thoroughly.
Finally the student will perform the entire Massage as an examination to qualify for the Basic Thai Massage Course and will receive a Certification of successfully completed Training in Basic Thai Massage.
