Thai Massage Training : Where to Start with CE Courses

Elevate Massage Training offers beginner, intermediate and advanced Thai Massage CE courses on the mat and table for licensed massage therapists.

OUR PROGRAM IS FLEXIBLE > > > If you are a licensed massage therapist then you can take any of our Intro and Immersion Courses on the Mat and Table Thai Courses in any order at any time.

Our Intro and Immersion Courses on the mat are where most LMTs start or continue training with us...LMT participants must be able to sit, kneel, lunge and move around on the floor throughout each training day in order to complete these courses. Each of our six core IMMERSION COURSES ON THE MAT presents a different sequence of techniques that can be used as a stand-alone treatment or integrated in with other techniques that you already know while also highlighting a specific aspect of Thai Massage such as acupressure, passive stretching, Thai Yoga and herbal medicine. Every course focuses on

  • a logical sequence of techniques for the entire body

  • the fundamentals of positioning and transitioning

  • appropriate practitioner body mechanics and

  • general principles for giving a balanced and flowing Thai Massage session with a meditative state of mind

All Intro and Immersion Courses are open to beginners and beyond and can be taken in any order at any time ...

Thai Massage Open & Ground (14CE)

Thai Massage Stretch to Seated (21CE)

Thai Massage Bend & Twist (14CE)

Thai Massage for Side Lying Position (21CE)

Thai Massage Core & More (21CE)

Thai Massage Hands-Free (14CE)

***We also have 1/2 day Intro to Thai Massage on the Mat (5CE) course is for beginners who have a general curiosity about Thai Massage but aren't quite ready to jump into a multi-day immersion course. This 1/2 day intro course is NOT a prerequisite to any of our other courses. You can take the Intro to Thai Massage on the Mat course in-person or online at any time to earn 5CE credits and check out our teaching style!***

At the end of each course you will receive a CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION for purposes of CE reporting and tracking the progress of your training. And, because you are an LMT, you can share any and all of the mat-based bodywork techniques you learn with your clients after each class you take. You will, however, want to practice some outside of class to smooth out your sequencing, get accustomed to working on different body types and become as confident with your new skills as you are with what you currently do. Your instructor will help you develop a strategy for completing these post-class practice sessions and discuss how to add Thai Massage to your menu of services.

If you really plan to add mat-based Thai Massage to your menu of services then we strongly advise that you prepare to complete some practice sessions immediately after each class. Post-class practice is considered the self-study component to each course. Documented practice sessions are a requirement for any LMT who wants to move on to our advanced track of study.

ADVANCED THAI MASSAGE TRAINING : Upon completion of these requirements the LMT will qualify to attend the Advanced Thai Massage Intensive Course on the Mat

  • complete all six core Thai Massage immersion courses on the mat

  • document the recommended number of practice sessions for each core immersion course

  • perform a skills check off with the instructor

Our Table Thai Courses are designed to help LMTs improve client outcomes with Thai Massage techniques that have been adapted for table bodyworkers. Our most popular Table Thai courses are the one day Table Thai Acupressure course and the two-day Table Thai Explorations course - both of which we rotate into our training schedule throughout the year. You may also request one of our Table Thai courses for special CE events such as conferences or private group trainings. You can take any Table Thai course we offer in any order at any time.

Our Thailand Study Tours accommodate all levels of experience in Thai Massage from beginner to advanced. Over the years we have developed relationships with several reputable, Thailand credentialed schools and highly respected, experienced and registered Thai instructors. To qualify to travel with us you must first complete the free application for the trip you wish to join. *Preference is given to LMTs who have taken one or more Thai Massage courses with Elevate Massage Training but you do not need to have previous training with us to apply.

As a licensed massage therapist you may choose to take a single CE course to comply with licensure renewal requirements or work your way through the entire program to add a Thai Massage focus to your practice.

Which course you start with is up to you. We hope the information in this article helps you decide!
