Our ITM training is for those who want to start learning Thai massage in Canada, and then complete their training at the International Thai Massage Training School in Chiang Mai.
The intent of our 30-hour, 5 day ITM courses is to establish the foundations of a professional Thai massage practice. You will receive the exact same training that you receive at the International Thai Massage Training School.
We will submit the documentation for all students who complete the practical exams at the end of each course to ITM so that your training is recorded. You will then receive a certificate from ITM at no additional cost. You will then be eligible to continue studying Levels 3 to 5 in Thailand.
