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.

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.

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.

Feb. 12, 2016 I’ve taken another important step by absolving the APT - Advance Thai massage Therapy Course. I am quite surprised myself about how many possibilities there are to create an individual massage.

All my expectations were not only met but even surpassed.

What really impressed me was how all the individual techniques of all different levels could be put together to create a unique treatment: level 1 to 3, foot massage, thai table massage, thai chair massage with all varieties and high risk techniques. Furthermore the treatments of Dr. Artitt and last but not least step on massage, tok sen and herbal balls could be implemented into the massages.

New for me were the massages on expecting mothers and infants. If used consciously you can promote the child’s development greatly.

In currently 39 real sequences of 60 or 120 minutes each the course teach you how diverse one can create a good thai massage. Main focus is the treatment of common bodily complaints and blockages.

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 conduct at TMC school setting or at the community center. Real stage community teaching can be one of these samples:

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 toward 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.
