Thai Massage Training

Foundations, Advanced & Therapeutic Thai Massage Training

Detailed and comprehensive Traditional Thai Massage training apprenticeships in Foundations, Advanced, and Therapeutic Thai Massage bring the most authentic and traditional style of training to the student. Thai Massage trainings are intensive and teach students think for themselves and practice Traditional Thai Ayurveda based treatment protocols at the therapeutic level rather than learning fluffy, stretching focused, repetitive entry level technique.
Unlike massage and or massage therapy programs, students are learning a comprehensive and traditional system of indigenous traditional medicine from day one and have the opportunity to study one-to-one with the instructor. Our Florida State DOE Authorized College of Natural Medicine, Ayurveda and the Thai Yoga Center are located in beautiful Brooksville, Florida. Learning as in a traditional Thai-style apprenticeship through watching, practicing, and immersion style format is the most focused and intensive way of learning. Our SomaVeda® Thai Yoga programs are famous world wide and our program is the oldest original Traditional Thai Medical Massage program in the US, full time since 1984!

Other programs claim to be traditional and to stress a traditional Thai style approach. However, the student should ask “upon what traditional apprenticeship and authentic traditional school method is their approach based on?” Our chief instructor Aachan, Dr. Anthony B. James is recognized as a master teacher and professor of Thai Traditional Medicine by The UTTS, Ministry of Thai Traditional Medicine and is a Certified Aachan and professor in the Anantasuk School of Thai Traditional Medicine and the Wat Po Association of Thai Traditional Medical Schools. See verifiable references here!


If any instructor claiming to operate a “traditional ” apprenticeship type of program approaches you and can not provide similar or equal documentation… Run Away!


We offer over 4000 hrs. of college level education & courses, certifications and degrees in our apprentice program. No other Traditional Thai Massage program offers so much. New apprentice students begin with the 164 hr. 17 day intensive training… Typical course days run from 8:30 am in the morning to 10:00pm in the evenings. When we say intensive training. we mean it!

Click here for a complete description of the pre-requisite course for new apprentices and students!
More than intensive, personal, hands on professional training and education. As we are a NAIC (Native American Indigenous Church) operated seminary we are not doing this for the money! NAIC Inc. is a Florida State Chartered, IRS Compliant 508 (c)1(A) FBO- Faith based, religious/ Church and Federally registered Tribal Organization. This means not only are donations to NAIC Tax Deductable but that NAIC offers the MOST Generous Tuition Grant and scholarship program in the industry. See for yourself how we can generously offer five different Tier Level Grants. SCHOLARSHIP-GRANTS FOR NEW STUDENTS.

Unlike other so called traditional schools, we represent living traditions of Ayurveda and Thai Traditional Medicine with verifiable permission and authorization. Our Aachan is recognized as an Aachan or Professor of Thai medicine and has the verifiable recognition’s to prove it! Aachan, Dr. Anthony B. James Bio.

No one better here in the US or in Thailand to teach you this traditional healing work than a Thai recognized master teacher with 36 years of full time teaching experience teaching Thai Medicine and traditional healing arts.

​There is more than technique involved in running a healing practice and making a living as a Traditional Thai Massage practitioner! Since our school is a full and comprehensive natural medicine and college of Ayurveda we can teach you everything you need to start, maintain and prosper in your Traditional Thai Massage based healing practice.

Please note, some of the adjunct course work apprentices receive training in…

More than 27 distinctive adjunct and clinical practices are offered to every apprentice. Of course included at NO Additional Fee!

The full apprentice style program will take an average student two to four years to complete (with a SCNM College Doctor of Ayurveda PhD. degree) however, the initial commitment is only 17 days!  The student is expected to practice and do the required homework between modules to assimilate and absorb all the instruction. Aachan, Dr. Anthony James and senior staff teachers make sure you stay on track.


Legal Guidelines!

What’s the point of apprentice in a genuine traditional Thai Massage program if your not legal to practice everything you have learned! We can assure you that when you complete our program and following our legal guidelines as taught in class your perfectly legal to practice in all 50 states and 100 countries outside the US! Most if not all programs of study calling themselves “Thai” regardless of how good their technique is can not give you a legal basis to actually practice! We are a Federally Registered Native American Indigenous Tribal Organization and our right to practice our religious therapeutics is established and protected under two different federal codes. Some school try to mis-direct students into enrolling in Massage Therapy programs and applying for a massage license to practice… Falsely implying that your legal to practice Traditional Thai Massage with a “Massage License”… This is patently false and misleading and unethical as well. These schools are not going to be able to offer you any assistance should a massage board or state medical board come after you! We can provide a legal basis for practice to all of our apprentices upon request.

Don’t take our word for it!

Listen to first hand Testimony from our SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda Apprentice Students!

New Apprentice Start Dates: January, March, May, July, September, November and December and April in Thailand!

LearnThaiYoga Announces OnLine Learning Platform!

LearnThaiYoga On-Line
Traditional Thai Yoga Therapy also known as Thai Traditional Massage is the fastest growing and most sought after healing modality in the world today. Of course, the best way to learn is in a live class with a Master Teacher or Thai “Aachan” such as at the Thai Yoga Center in Brooksville, Florida studying with Aachan Dr. Anthony B. James and or his trained and certified SomaVeda® Thai Yoga staff Khruu or Teachers.

You Asked for it!

However, if you can’t make it to a live SomaVeda® Thai Yoga class either because of scheduling or cost the next best thing is to learn from the Master Teacher at Home!
Now you can Learn SomaVeda® Thai Yoga at Home!
Don’t waste your time on lessons from untrained and un-certified and or non-authentic teachers?
Come to a genuine source!
Hi everyone and good day!
I am continuing my current project of bringing you new and useful information and content to empower you to Jump Start Your Healing Practice.  It’s not enough to just have a goody bag of useful “tricks” and “bits” of therapies to put together a successful healing practice. Degrees and Certifications are fine but in and of themselves do not lead one to a happy, successful and fulfilling life, a intrinsically successful, happy life.
Recent Course Releases…
Increase Your Focus For Better Life and Practice
Sustainable Eating Equals Sustainable Health
Meditation for Focus and Success
The Freedom of Living in the Now
How To Get Back on The Health Track
New Video Lessons on SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Vinyasa (Flows for various breakouts)!
It is good that our traditions have deep and ancient roots with elders and teachers who have lived the life of healers, traditional doctors and therapist for centuries, literally. They are our role models. We do not have to reinvent the wheel of success in what we do by ourselves. Only our current life situations and perhaps cultural considerations are unique. But what we are doing in life is not new or unique. We can learn from our elders and these lessons and qualities I am recommending you cultivate don’t originate with me personally but they are passed down to us by previous generations of healers who chose to practice true medicine as a way of life for their whole life!
Please share these courses with your professional friends!
