WHAT IS NUAD THAI MASSAGE?

Click here if you like to know what Nuad Thai massage is

First and only UN-recognized massage technique

Nuad Thai – also called Thai yoga massage – is the only massage technique in the world recognized by Unesco as world heritage.

Health benefits for both client & masseur

This massage therapy is based on manipulation of the joints, acupressure along the muscles and stretching of the muscles, with enormous health benefits for both client, but also for the masseur.

Used in hospitals

In Asia, and Thailand in particular, massage is part of regular medicine (it is used in hospitals) and a daily routing with enormous health results. In the west, the benefits of massage are also becoming more and more familiar.

Different than other forms of massage

Nuad Thai massage is different than other forms of massage, because both masseur and client are constantly moving in yoga-like positions with Tai Chi movements. This is especially the case when performed in the original way: over the clothes on a mat on the floor.

Meditation & Flexibility

This is why not only the client but also the masseur becomes more flexible and is in meditation during the treatment.

Over 2500 years old

Nuad Thai massage is aimed at preventing ailments and improving overall health. This massage technique excists already for more than 2500 years. Originally it is done on the mat over the clothes and also widely known as traditional thai yoga massage.

Various massage disciplines

During the years Nuad Thai massage became populair worldwide and is now not only performed on a mat. You can also receive Nuad Thai massage on a chair or performed on the table. Mostly given as full-body massage over the clothes on the mat, Nuad Thai massage can also be given as foot reflexology massage. And since deep tissue & sports massage is mostly well-known in other areas of the world outside Asia, we do teach this technique as well as part of the Nuad Thai program.

The Courses in the Nuad Thai Massage Program:

* Thai Yoga Massage

Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is a preventive and therapeutic full body massage given on a mat on the floor.

The massage therapy is based on manipulation of the joints, acupressure along the muscles and stretching of the muscles, with enormous health benefits. Thai yoga massage is different than other forms of massage, because both masseur and client are constantly moving.

This is why not only the client but also the masseur becomes more flexible and is in meditation during the treatment.

* Thai Chair Massage

Thai Chair Massage is an effective massage to the back, neck, shoulders, and hands on a massage chair or on an ordinary chair. Thus, research shows that 15 minutes of chair massage results in reduced stress at work, increased alertness and increased speed and accuracy of mathematical calculations.

Office workers who are regularly massaged are more alert, perform better and are less stressed. Chair massage is the best massage to learn if you want a flexible job. As a chair massage therapist you can work in markets, festivals, offices, shops, businesses and more.

* Thai Foot reflexology massage

Thai Foot Reflexology Massage is a practical technique to loosen the feet using a Thai reflexology stick, relax and stimulate the body to restore its own healthy balance in a natural way. Foot reflexology is the most common massage in Asia against insomnia, headache, backache, knee pain, problems in the foot, stress and more.

The benefits of foot reflexology are not yet known in the West, but awareness grows, so you will have big career opportunities as a foot reflexologist.

 

* Thai Table Massage

Traditional Thai Table Massage is a preventive and therapeutic full body traditional Thai Yoga Massage treatment on the table, based on manipulation of joints, acupressure and stretches over the clothes. Thai Table Massage is the most sophisticated and increasingly demanded massage in wellness centers.

* Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue and Sports Massage is a massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

It is helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back pain, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders. The movement is slower than Classic Swedish Massage and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).

It is known that through Deep Tissue (Sports) massage (professional) athletes recover faster from injuries and also to stay healthy.

      FAQ

      I don’t have experience. Can I join?

      We will teach you everything from the beginning. You will learn what it takes to be a massage therapist. You can retake our online courses, because you have free access for 1 year. We offer personal support, so are sure you will have all the tools to be a great Nuad Thai Masseur and be fully ready for your new career. Or if a new career is not your desire, you will be fully ready to give great massage treatments to improve the health of your friends and family.

      We believe practice makes perfect. The exams are also purely practice exams. We believe that our curriculum provides you with all the necessary information and tools to become a really good Nuad Thai masseur.

      Can I start a massage practice afterwards?

      The profession of ‘masseur’ is not protected. You can start working as an independent masseur as soon as you have a work space and are registered at the Chamber of Commerce. Your certification also allows you to work at spa’s, wellness centers and yoga schools. There is a large demand for Nuad Thai massage therapists.

      I have health issues. Is a massage training right for me at the moment or is it better to wait until I am completely fit?

      Our unique teaching method ensures that you also experience the health benefits of massage during the classes. Many of our students heal their burnout, back pain, headaches and stress simply by taking the massage classes and experiencing the benefits of Nuad Thai massage themselves.

      Do I get a certificate?

      Upon successful completion of the program, it is optional to get certified. The certification consists of 6 practical exams – live in our school in Amsterdam – 90 euro per exam.

      ITM Thai Hand Amsterdam is an internationally accredited massage school, a franchise of ITM Chiang Mai, the best Massage School in Thailand.

      Our school is registered at the Central Register of Short Professional Education, CRKBO (Centraal Register Kort Beroepsonderwijs) and the World Massage Federation.

      The certificates you will receive as a graduate of Thai Yoga Massage Level 1 (Nuad Bo Rarn), Thai Yoga Massage Level 2 (Nuad Bo Rarn), Thai Table Massage, Thai Chair Massage, Thai Foot Reflexology and Deep Tissue (Sports) Massage are internationally recognized.

      Do I get a job guarantee?

      If you are serious about learning Nuad Thai massage, then you can find a job. We see this happen all the time with our graduates. Of course, we cannot guarantee you a job, just as a university degree, for example, does not guarantee you work either. ITM Thai Hand Amsterdam regularly seeks new employees and we also connect our graduate therapists with centers and practices who have vacancies. We see a growing demand for Nuad Thai Masseurs and believe that this demand will continue to grow. So our graduates should be able to find a job quite easily.

      in What language is the program given?

      All classes are taught in English, including the didactic material. But if you have a problem with the language, we also speak Dutch and Spanish. Our students come from different countries. Some have English as their mother tongue, but most have English as a second or third language. Our students have never had a problem with the language, even if their English is very basic. Thai massage is traditionally taught and learned by feeling and looking – so English is not essential, but only makes it easier to learn.

      We follow the Covid-19 protocol to stay safe

      We look forward to teaching you!

      Nicole van Zurk & Manuel Luque Aguilera
