250 Hour Program

Certified Trainings

Spirit Winds School of Thai Massage provides a 250-hour Thai Massage program comprised of quality training in two styles of Traditional Thai massage: Northern style and Jap Sen Herbal style.  Classes are approved for CEUs with NCBTMB and Thai Healing Alliance International.  Class offerings are for both the beginner student and the advanced therapist so that you can keep coming back to increase your skills and to refine your specialized work.

Each class has its own certificate for CEUs approved with NCBTMB.  You can take classes individually at any time that it is offered and receive a certificate or you can take all of the classes to complete the 250 Hour Program.  Students are welcome to take any class a second time for half price and receive another certificate.  After taking a class twice you can come for free!

All Trainings and Events can be paid for with a $100 deposit to secure your space or paid in full.  If you pay in full by the deadline you will receive the discount price. If you need to make payments special arrangements can be made by contacting Spirit Winds.

Spirit Winds School of Thai Massage is approved by the NCBTMB as a Continuing Education Approved Provider #225.
Approved Institution by Thai Healing Alliance International
