Prerequisite: No Prior Experience Needed
Instructors/Hosts: Kristine Traucht & Marty Traucht

All of our programs and courses of study are built on the idea of providing the absolute best opportunity for students to learn the Thai healing arts while in their home country. Our programs are enriched with Thai cultural knowledge and steeped in the traditions of Thailand teaching only traditional Thai medicine and traditional Thai massage.

Despite our long history of offering classes and educational opportunities as if you are actually in Thailand, there is no replacement for learning the Thai healing arts in its country of origin. Traditionally native Thai students who wanted to learn the healing arts would move in with their teacher for a period of time to fully grasp an understanding of their knowledge and absorb as much as possible while contributing to the running of the household. Teachers helped their students to learn deep detailed knowledge without reservation through immersion. Often times students would live with their teachers for several years. Through this process, the student was exposed to much more than could ever be offered in a modern classroom setting. It is with this spirit of traditional Thai teaching that we are offering students the "Study in Thailand" program.


If you would like to explore Thailand and her culture, deepen your current understanding of the Thai healing arts, and study with Thai teachers, our "Study in Thailand Program" could be the perfect opportunity for you. Kristine and Marty Traucht will be offering a once-in-a-lifetime travel and learning experience.


Kristine and Marty Traucht will be offering a once-in-a-lifetime travel and learning experience. It will commence with a group retreat in deep in the heart of the jungles of Mae Rim, Thailand. After which, we will explore the history, medicine, and culture of Northern Thailand. The final week we will be focusing on Thai massage trainings for students of all levels from no training to advanced practitioners with Basic Thai Massage training and Thai Medical Apprenceship Training. Only a limited number of spaces are available for students to receive this in-depth learning and growth.

Enrollment is available to only 12 students.

Relaxing and Rejuvenating Retreat

Students will be picked up at the Chiang Mai Airport and taken to a mountain retreat outside of the city in Chiang Mai, Thailand. We will begin our trip with meditation practice, self massage techniques, healthy eating, light exercising, and some enjoyable excursions in the area.

Week Two:
Exploration and Educational Excursions in Northern Thailand

After preparing our bodies and minds in week one, we will commence with our educational excursions that will explore a variety of aspects of the culture of Northern Thailand. We will be learning about Thai herbal medicine and massage, Buddhism, Indigeneous Practices, and much more. We will take several group trips into the surrounding area to build or knowledge and skills in Thai Folk Medicine.

There will be a training options for students who have no prior training all the way through advanced practitioners. The Basic course will be taught from our Basic Thai Massage curriculum. The Thai Medical Apprenticeship will involve specific lessons taught as a group, as well as customized learning for each individual student based on your individual goals.

This is an opportunity to work alongside a seasoned and experienced practitioner of the Thai healing arts. You will have an opportunity to develop your practice well above and beyond. It is our goal to provide the most in-depth and unique training opportunity possible to students while visiting Thailand.

This is a complete immersion style program where you will have direct and long term contact with instructors and hosts throughout the entire program schedule.
