Why Phuket Institute
The difference between us and other schools is the high teacher to student ratio, normally one to one, and the fact that we focus the entire time on the subject in hand, we do not attempt to teach you Buddhist prayers or Yoga in your time, while we fully endorse both of these essentials we also believe that you actually need the time with massage in order to attain the required proficiency levels.The prayers will be covered and provided in any event and Yoga classes can be arranged outside class time for those interested.
Eligibility for Courses
While it is possible that a background in the realms of healing via touch may be useful, it is by no means essential. We start at the beginning and each aspect of the work is covered thoroughly. The courses are therefore open to both beginners and professionals alike. However because of the intensity of the courses we would stress that this is not just a holiday course to collect a piece of paper but a serious professional training course.
