This curriculum is the first half of the GCT Teacher Training Curriculum of 300 hour and 600 hour. Thus it is the crucial curriculum of all. The curriculum is suitable for learners who want to practice in massage field as Thai massage therapist. The curriculum is ideal for learners who seek more in their education to return to continue for GCT curriculum later on. They can find out what they want more in life—if teaching the art of Thai massage is their passion, they can return to complete their dream.

Thai Step-On Massage using a cane is a part of i5 learning. This unique modality - TMC teachers learned from the temple- is to help ease the burden on thumbs and hand and increase more pressure for therapeutic result.

I5 is a fun class while it is intense – that is what most students tell us at their last week!The students learn intensively on Level 1-2 and 3. Though they are the same courses in the short courses, but the teachers will expect more from the i5 students. They will be in the class for i5 and GCT (a few occasions there may be 1 or 2 students from the short program join in due to class arrangement) and the teachers will be more strict and more discipline in learning and practicing from them. However, there are times to enjoy and relax – yes when you receive!


 

Students get to go on field training to visit and perform massage for elderly people at the senior center who long to your visit.  Then the most heartfelt massage is giving to special children at the children center. You take from them more than giving that is the life experience of giving.

 

I5 intern will join with GCT in all these activities above in addition to going to the community and learn the local wisdom of Thai Traditional Medicine other Thai massage modality of Tok Sen and Yam Khang from the renowned Phor Mor Tananan Fainanta of Lampoon Province. Phor Mor Tananan, 52 year old, who learned Thai Traditional Medicine from his grandfather since a boy of ten. He followed his grandfather during treatment to the villagers until his grandfather approved of his ability to perform the traditional medicine treatment to the people. He is one of the last remaining Thai medicine doctor “Phor Mor” in the province who still practice the art. He is also the inviting instructor to the Thai Tradition Medicine department at the universities of Lampoon and Chiang Rai

 

Students will get to experience the modalities by receiving Yam Khang from Phor Mor and receive training on Tok Sen from him and his wife who trained by him and become “Mae Mor” – a woman medicine doctor. This is the memorable experience of the local wisdom in the most serene – peaceful setting in the temple.

Professor Aatit Pongmali, Ph.D. or Arjan Araya Yankai professors from Department of Physical Therapy, Faculty of Associated Medical Sciences, Chiang Mai University.

Massage Schools and Massage Colleges need to listen to students’ voice – evaluation is an important tool:

Review – Evaluation forms are given to students at the end of each class.
Intensive 150 Curriculum (I5) and Teacher Training Curriculum (GCT) are given above the weekly evaluation form and also exit evaluation at the end of the curriculum. This is to ensure the effectiveness of the training and the efficiency of school management and operation. We take the voice and opinions of our students seriously and thankfully. Only the one that care will take time to write and tell others what they think either admirations or criticisms.
The evaluation forms indicate 6 areas comprise of:  Course Manual; Teacher’s knowledge; Instruction; Environment; and Hospitality with the marks from need Improvement, Satisfactory, Good, and Excellent.
According to the evaluation we received from the beginning to the present time: We can humbly state that TMC pass 100% Satisfaction mark in all categories from all students. Among them, students give TMC performance in all 6 categories with  92 percent excellent performance, 6% of good performance and 2% offer suggestion to improvement in some areas. Some suggestions are more toward personal wishes and some are very useful for the classes and the school. We take these suggestions into consideration seriously and thankfully and implement and improve those that practical and applicable.

Beside the evaluation format, students offer the review and testimonials for school with much love and appreciation of the teachers, the staff and the school.
We share some that written to us with you in the Testimonials section. There are still countless words and hugs when students graduates and shower us – especially the teachers - with their loves and appreciations that are not included here.

To prove the truth of these words one must be there to experience it.
At TMC each class is offer as promise. In teaching and learning there is a bond between the school and the students. We develop stronger bond through goodwill and trust. Honesty is the sacred rule for everyone to follow. Thus the outcome is joy in teaching and joy in learning.

This is the most unique and signature modality of Thai massage since the ancient time that the foreigners are familiar with the quoting from the French Embassador La Lubare “ In Siam, when someone fell ill, the person with massage experience would start to help stretch the body by stepping on the receiver…”

 

 

High Risk Stretching Positions for more advanced learning: For the level of training, GCT students are capable to perform more strenuous stretching safely.  The school offer more stretching positions and differentiate them as “High Risk Positions”. The teachers will pay much closed supervision during practice.

 

Thai Traditional Medicine Local Wisdom Yam Khang & Tok Sen: Part of the field training, GCT students together with i5 students learn the local wisdom of Thai Traditional Medicine other Thai massage modality of “Tok Sen” and “Yam Khang”  from the renowned Phor Mor Tananan Fainanta of Lampoon Province. Phor Mor Tananan, 52 year old, who learned Thai Traditional Medicine from his grandfather since a boy of ten.  He followed his grandfather during treatment to the villagers until his grandfather approved of his ability to perform the traditional medicine treatment to the people. He is one of the last remaining Thai medicine doctor “Phor Mor” in the province who still practice the art. He is also the inviting instructor to the Thai Tradition Medicine department at the universities of Lampoon and Chiang Rai.

Yam Khang is the sacred healing massage in which the practitioner applies the foot on hot iron plate on the charcoal burning stove. The using the heated foot massage on the patient. Students will get to experience the modality by receiving Yam Khang from Phor Mor.

Tok Sen is another ancient healing using wooden hammer pounding along the Sen line on the body. Students will experience the modality and receive training on Tok Sen from Phor Mor Tananan and his wife who trained by him and become “Mae Mor” – a woman medicine doctor. This is the memorable experience of the local wisdom in the most serene – peaceful setting in the temple. 

 

Government Certified Teacher Training:

For GCT 300 Hour Program, the teacher intern will conduct 2 courses:

  • Thai Foot Reflexology course 2 days.
  • Foundation of Thai Massage course 5 days.

The teaching training in actual class setting:  The curriculum requires interns to conduct real class according to the course curriculum. The GCT interns will have opportunity to perform two courses teaching training. The teaching may be at one of these two centers.

The Young Women Development Center (YDC) at Mae Rim, Chiang Mai. This is the center where girls ages from about 16-20 year old taking vocational 2 year program under YDC administration. The class of approximately 24 girls will get the chance to study Thai massage for career from Foundation of Thai Massage up to professional levels including Thai Foot Reflexology class by GCT teacher training 300 and 600 hour programs and TMC teachers.

Thai massage teacher training program provide the choice and chances to the girls to find and fulfill their dreams. The Public Health Department is working with TMC school being liaison between the graduates and the quality Thai massage business provider. The girls receive free training and complete with workbooks and practice materials.

Most of the teaching in the past were conducted at JDC and will continue to offer classes to the students occasionally at the Juvenile Detention Facility for mostly teenage and girls in Chiang Mai. The misfortunate of these boys and girls changed the horizon over night when they met with the GCT teachers.

To them lack of love and compassion is the major part of what bring them in there.  To GCT teacher, what they offer to the students is not only education but the hearts full of sincere love that pouring to them. The 2 day class and the 5 days class change everyone’s life in small or big way. For the students, they get to feel that someone really care about them. For the teachers, they get to understand what it likes to be a true teacher.

Classes for JDS are real and must meet standard of teaching. The diplomas the students earn can mean the gate way for new lives for some. If they finish Level 1, they can continue on and if they complete 90 hour course (Level 1-2-3) they can work as a massage practitioner in a massage place. The diploma from TMC school is approved by the Ministry of Public Health.

Teaching Credential

The GCT 600 hour teacher training curriculum is the most comprehensive and intensive which require strict discipline and determination to reach the goal. The graduate teacher from this one of the kind curriculum is authorized to conduct classes the same with 7 short courses available at TMC school.

In normal learning environment and set up, to be able to teach total of 7 courses—especially the Therapeutic Thai Massage (Level 3) is the most difficult course to conduct—
would require five years of learning and practicing. The possibility to complete the curriculum in 600 hours – 20 weeks is from the well creation curriculum and the strict discipline TMC apply on itself in following the syllabus. This is the “mother” of all courses there is in Thai massage and TMC school is the only Thai massage school to receive the  approved curriculum.

 

TMC offer the curriculum with the highest standard in teaching training. The Chiang Mai Chief of Education Department had issued a certified letter to ensure the authorization of the curriculum and the high standard performance of the school for both curriculums.

Now Thai Massage Teacher Training GCT 600 Hour Program from Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai has the opportunity to offer hope, choice and chance to the disadvantage girls up to 24 persons each year to ward becoming Thai massage therapist when they complete their high school at the Youth Women Development Center (YDC), Mae Rim, Chiang Mai.

Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai and Thai Massage School of Thailand in cooperation with the YDC to integrate Thai massage profession in their vocation syllabus for the last school years of the girls. Thai massage curriculum at YDC is an on-going program and will enable the teens to complete the curriculum as required by the Ministry of Education and the Public Health Department for the teens to earn their credits and also qualified to work as Thai massage therapists at the Public Health approved providers. This is the pilot year and we both commit for the long term cooperation.

Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai and Thai Massage School of Thailand continue to offer Thai massage training under Teacher Training Program to JDC students each year.

The GCT teachers of 600 Hour can make their students dream come true at Juvenile Detention Facility for teenage boys and girls in Chiang Mai. They can teach all 3 levels of Thai massage from TMC curriculum. This course is the life changing permit for the boys and girls. Once they complete the 90 hour course after their release they can make Thai massage their new career! They would never have this opportunity if the GCT teachers do not offer them this course. TMC is the only school offer and support the massage education to the students there.

The concentration of this GCT Phase II is toward teaching education since there are 2 most important courses to teach—Level 2 and Level 3. TMC teachers work closely to the GCT teachers at all time. The school director and GCT teacher meet several occasions and discuss teaching planning and any related matter. In fact the whole school put their support for the GCT teachers of 600 hour. That is why we only offer this curriculum in the low season period and only one annually.

This curriculum is the highest reward for both the apprentice and the school. We are proud to be able to turn out noble teachers to spread the teaching of the ancient art from our great teachers to the world.
