TTC Spa School, surrounded by nature, is located in the ancient capital of Chiang Mai in Thailand.
Our massage school, approved by Thai government, was founded in 2007. We teach not only Thai Traditional Massage but also oil massage, lymphatic massage, face massage and foot massage. Our school is the first school in Thailand that combined those massage courses along with the one-month therapist training course.

In our school, we have 4 separate courses. Students are able to learn not only Thai Traditional Massage but also other various massage techniques. Students can learn from basics to advanced skills according to their knowledge and experience. Our school is one of few schools in Thailand where students can learn the idea of what is important in being a massager and a therapist. Our international school welcomes not only Japanese students but students from other countries who understand either Japanese or English.

Chiang Mai, where our school is located, is the place of relaxation. Our modern world is a hectic place where we never realize how fast time flies. Why not come to Chiang Mai, the place where you can learn the techniques of massaging, where you can slow down and relax the body and mind?


A main feature of TTC Spa School


The family of one of the founders of our school, headmaster, Ms. Kanokwan Thapech, is an old family of Thailand that has inherited the Thai Traditional Medicine techniques. They have read and understood the old writing that they inherited from their ancestors about Thai Traditional Medicine.

Traditional Thai Massage and Thai Herbs are part of Thai culture and are deeply rooted into the people’s lives. The origin that Thailand is called “the Land of Smiles” lies within its culture. Thai Traditional Massage is a sphere of academy that searched for the balance between nature and humans.

Our school is a rare school that keeps the old writing about Thai Traditional Medicine.

Photo on the left shows the part of the writing.
This writing is nationally designated as an important cultural property.




Uncle of our headmaster still works hard as a physician in Loei Province in Thailand. He still goes to the mountains to pick the herbs by himself.

He is also one of the people in charge of decoding the old writings that is now kept in Wat Pho temple. Since the writing is written in an old Thai language, he is one of few people who can understand and translate the language.

Saying of the Uncle
“Everything that has life in it, flora and fauna, cannot be seen as unimportant and will deeply contact with the wellbeing of humans. “
