What to Expect at Byron Thai Massage School

Our courses are run in the iconic beach-side town of Byron Bay.
Australia’s most Eastern point, Byron Bay is a mecca for alternative lifestyle, health, yoga and surf. Be careful though, you might never want to leave!

Our courses are non-residential, and take place in a beautiful studio built for training small groups of up to 8. The studio is a lush space for practicing massage; with timber floors, cathedral ceiling, natural light, surrounded by greenery and birdsong. There is a kitchen to prepare your healthy meals and a bathroom.

Outside we have a chill out space replete with couch, hammock and table where you can while away your lunch break.

I want to give others what i have: a job that keeps me fit and healthy and that gives me a great lifestyle.
So I teach people a new skill in a very short time that enables them to live healthy, balanced lives and work for themselves if they choose to do so.

At the end of my courses I want every student to leave as a capable, knowledgeable and empowered Thai Massage therapist. Quality and consistency does not exist in the industry today, so I aim to raise the bar with my training philosophy.

What's Unique About Our Thai Massage Trainings

  • Non-Residential

    Our trainings are non-residential. Please email Valentina to receive a list of local houses walking distance to the course, that offer affordable accommodation to students.

  • Hands-on

    Trainings are experience-based, giving students the practical skills and deeper felt sense required to perform the Thai Massage sequence in a flowing, safe and comfortable way for both practitioner and client.

  • Small Classes

    Small Classes are a max of 6 to 8 students, so you receive focused training and individual attention, which you simply don’t get in a large group.

  • We care about your body

    Using correct posture, breath and core engagement, you will feel the healing benefits as much as the client will.

  • Daily Personalised Yoga

    In the group courses, 4 days a week start with an 1.5hrs  Yoga class, tailored on the sequence students will learn that day. The purpose is:

    • to support students in learning how to use their body correctly;
    • to support each student, individually throughout the course;
    • to increase strength and flexibility;
    • to identify the similarities between Thai Massage and Yoga.
  • Proper Massage Mats

    You will be practicing on Thai Massage mats, that are made to give the right resistance to your pressure, while having enough padding for your knees and ensure that the client is comfortable.

    Mats are imported from Thailand and available for purchase at the completion of the course.

Our Students Say

  • Valentina's ability to sustain clarity, focus and momentum, while delivering so much information is engaging and facilitates an ease of learning. This sense of clarity carries through to her precision and attention to detail. Valentina is lucid, present and supportive with the students, plus her approach to assessment, flexible timetable and lunch hours is wonderful!

  • I found the course to be thoroughly enjoyable & rewarding. I gained so much insight into the healing art of Thai Massage under the guidance & instruction of Valentina. She was with us every step of the way to offer advice & support. This, I feel, is a true credit to her teaching skills. I recommend the course to anyone willing to work hard + reap the benefits. I now feel that I can confidently take steps towards becoming a Thai massage practitioner.

  • Morning Yoga is a great idea for preparation. This course delivers an enormous amount of information practically packaged to allow students to absorb, comprehend, understand and then practice in a safe way for both practitioner and client. Valentina’s attention for detail, patience and ready smile make, even difficult days, run smoothly. This course is definitely challenging both mentally and physically, but it is great value for money!

  • Just wanted to share my deep appreciation to Valentina for being able to fulfill a dream of mine coming true. The course was everything I expected it to be + much more. As a teacher, she has the right stuff to get students enthusiastic & motivated. She is always looking for ways to improve the course & material, which, quite frankly provided me with all the tools I needed. Valentina is a lovely down to earth woman with the understanding and compassion needed when teaching a bunch of individuals with all their various requirements.
