OUR POST-COVID HOUSE RULES

    1.) We still prefer students to live here with us -- if you live
           in Chiang Mai you may ask us about relaxing this rule;

    2.) The school will provide temperature and swab tests when
          indicated.

    3.) Trips into town for good reasons only. And please do
          wear a  mask while you're out -- to protect yourself and
          the rest of us once you get back to Baanhom.

    4.) Walks and bicycle rides in the countryside are safe. The
         McKean island is one of the best walks in old Chiang Mai,
         and Ginger Farm one of the best country stops for treats!

SONGKRAN/EASTER SERIES 2023

   
       

March 31st to
April 12th, 2023

 80hr THAI MASSAGE COURSE  (Live-in: 12 study days + 1 day off = 27,400 baht.

Topic: Thai Traditional Massage (Nuad Boran) and Rasidaton (Thai Yoga). This course concentrates on the classic two hour Thai Massage: legs, arms, side, prone and sitting positions. Because technique with fluency is the focus,  the stomach, face, and head are less the focus than the simple grace of touch and flow over the whole body, the latter being far more difficult to acquire than any of the technical parts.

Hardworking beginners can learn the full Thai Massage 'set' in this course, while professionals can improve their technique, refine their touch, and learn how to look after both themselves and their clients even better -- a very slight adjustment to the therapist's position. can add years to his or her professional life. Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) is included in all of Homprang's courses, but it's particularly important in this one.|

There will be an hour of Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) every morning at 7.00am followed by breakfast at 8.00, class from 9.00 to 12.00, lunch at noon, and then class again from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.  The Herbal Steam Baths will be hot everyday at 6:00pm followed by dinner at 7.00pm.

SONGKRAN FESTIVAL  BREAK

"Everybody goes home even if they are already there!

   

April 20th to the 29th, 2023

 60hr WOMBLIFTING, POSTPARTUM CARE &
         RELATED HERBAL THERAPIES
  (Live-in: 9 study days + 1 day off = 20,900 baht.)

One of Homprang's most intense courses, students must be prepared to concentrate every minute during the hours in class and then practice, practice, practice. Includes both intricate acupressure work and abdominal manipulation as well as herbal compresses, traditional steam treatments, postpartum care for mothers and babies, and herbal preparations as they are needed.

This course is often taken more than once by students who would actually like to practice Womblifting professionally as a single course is rarely enough. The course is also of great interest to professional midwives and doulas from all over the world -- working together in a class with such a diversity of students is an education in itself!

There  are a surprising number of men who take the course as well -- it deals not only with male problems associated with the abdominal area, the prostate in particular, but is of huge benefit to any professional massage therapist, male or female. It is also a very good preparation for Therapeutic Massage in general.

There will be an hour of Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) every morning at 7.00am followed by breakfast at 8.00, class from 9.00 to 12.00, lunch at noon, and then class again from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. The Herbal Steam Baths will be hot everyday at 6:00pm followed by dinner at 7.00pm.

May 3rd to the 27th, 2023

150hr THAI MASSAGE COURSE   (Live-in:  22 study days + 3 days off = 51,700 baht.)

At the beginning  this course concentrates on the fundamental parts of the Thai Traditional Massage, the legs, arms and trunk along with the different positions.  The second half of the course introduces the energy points and sen lines, and moves on to the shoulders, head and abdomen.  There is a written as well as a practical exam at the end.

Suitable both for beginners and advanced students, Homprang is assisted by her much respected  sister-in-law, Ajarn Bang, as well as by a professional Intern, so everybody gets the practical attention they need at their own level.  A very intense course, there is a great deal to master by participants at all levels, and everybody is encouraged to practice out of class in the evenings and on days-off.

There will be an hour of Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) every morning at 7.00am followed by breakfast at 8.00, class from 9.00 to 12.00, lunch at noon, and then class again from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. The Herbal Steam Baths will be hot everyday at 6:00pm followed by dinner at 7.00pm.

Oct.6th to the 15th, 2023

60hr HERBAL WORKSHOP with 'FOOD AS MEDICINE' (Live-in only: 9 study days + 1 day off = 20,900 baht.) 

You can click on the title for more information on Homprang's herbal work, and you can also have a look at the section of Related Photos on the Homepage. In addition there is  a  Sample Program -- it was  written in collaboration with her Bhutanese intern, Jamtsho Sonam -- he was educated in France and has a strong academic as well as practical background in Plant Medicine.

Students must remember that  Homprang herself  is a Traditional  Doctor, mid-wife & herbalist, and has no academic background to distract her. That is why no two classes of hers are ever the same, and why her work is always so fresh and relevant.

The exact content of  the course will be determined  not by a formal syllabus but by the season, the climate, social as well as natural, and above all by the interests of the specific group. And those interests are always refreshingly diverse from formidable specialists to what are sometimes the best-informed particpants of all, people who just love herbs!

Each day begins with a session of Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) at 7am followed by herbal work, study,  practice, and 'field trips' here and there in Chiang Mai. The class is from 9am to 4pm, and there is a herbal steam bath for everybody at 6pm.

A SPECIAL GATHERING

Dec. 22nd, 2023 to  Jan. 15th, 2024

 150hr SPECIAL THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE COURSE (Live-in:  22 study days + 3 days off = 51,700 baht.

The Special Therapeutic Course introduces cutting-edge acupressure techniques that are used to treat serious conditions including migraine, numbness, stroke damage, intractable back conditions, and other ailments that are not usually addressed by Thai Massage. A background in Thai Massage is very helpful but not essentialIndeed, the course is  open to any Professional Therapist with a strong background in energy work like Shiatsu, for example. Indeed, the most important qualification is substantial, hands-on experience of working with serious conditions over a number of years, and a desire to go further in alleviating the suffering of those who carry them.

If you are still not sure if this course is appropriate for you, please do e-mail us with your questions, and of course tell us a bit about yourself and your professional background so that we can help you make the right decision.

The treatments in this course are evolving all the time, and many advanced students and professional therapists choose to take it more than once. The exchange with such students is also extremely important to Homprang, as she regards the class as a Lab as much as a Training Ground.

We hope this year's class can become a SPECIAL Gathering for old students, friends, correspondents & colleagues who have always wanted to join it but never quite managed to get here. There will be days-off for Xmas & New Years with lots of good food and music  it feels like just the moment for this to happen here after 2 1/2 years of Pestilence followed by the Great Flood!

HELP FOR NEW STUDENTS

Live-In Students are charged Bt 2,200 per study-day -- this includes a room of your own with 3 meals a day, 1 hour of Thai yoga plus 6 hrs of teaching, a Training Notebook, Herbal Steam Baths after class, bicycles, wifi, and airport pickups.  ($1.00 = Bt33.7)

When should students arrive? As the Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) is at 7am on the first morning, students must  arrive the afternoon before the class begins. (There will be a Herbal Steambath about 5.30pm that day, and dinner will be at 7pm.) Students may arrive a day or two before that but they must ask our permission.

When does the course start & end? The Steam Bath followed by dinner the night before the course begins are part of the 1st Day, and includes the Rasidaton at 7am the next morning and the first full day of class. The night before the last class ends belongs to the Final Day, and continues to the end of the class at 4pm the next day.

Days-off. There is one Day-off for every week of class -- exactly when is arranged during each class. The charge is Bt 1,100 per day and includes full room & board (full pension) and the use of all our facilities.

Extra Days. Many students choose to stay on after the class ends at 4pm on the Final Day -- that's what we call  'Extra Days.' Students doing 2 or 3 courses in a row can also stay with us for the days between. The charge is 1,100 baht per day for full Room & Board.

When & how should students pay? We would like to be paid  in Thai baht during the first 3 days of the class, and you must decide how you are going to pay us before you arrive. For more information on how to get Thai Baht in the easiest, safest and least expensive way, please  CLICK HERE .

 1.) If you are already in Thailand you can bring your Thai baht to us in cash. That will be the cheapest as well as  the easiest way for you as well as for us.

2.) If you are coming straight out to us after you arrive  in Chiang Mai, we will take you to the best place to exchange your Bank Notes, use your ATM Card, or get cash at a Bank with your Credit Card. We will drive you there at 4.30pm  on the 1st or 2nd day after the class has begun.

3.) If you are going to use PayPal (always a very safe and easy option) you should have opened an account with PayPal before you come to Thailand. With PayPal there is a Transfer Fee of 4.7% which will be your responsibility

4.) You must inform your Bank that you will be here in Thailand before you arrive, otherwise none of your cards will work. Indeed, your Bank will assume your card has been stolen!!!)

We welcome Guests and non-studying Partners as long as we have room, and the charge is Bt 1,100 per day.  Meal Refunds on all days exist for Guests and non-studying partners, but you must tell us by 9am for lunch (Bt 100) and 1pm for dinner (Bt 150).

No Meal Refunds for Study Days. The student rate is a special, all-inclusive charge, and there can be no refunds for meals missed on Study Days.

 


FAQs ABOUT PAYMENT
 

DEPOSITS. Our classes are closed at 12 and often fully booked. We ask for a 25% Deposit to reserve a place, insuring that nobody is turned away when there is still space remaining. We refund deposits but only if a cancelled place can be filled before the beginning of the class. Indeed, we keep a WAITING LIST just for this purpose.

You should click on the PayPal BUTTONS to pay the deposit, which  includes 4.7% to cover the Transfer charges. To pay with your Credit Card you can click on the PayPal Button and then click on Pay with my credit or debit card. If you  have a PayPal account of your own you can use that as well.

FULL PAYMENT  The rest of your student fees should be paid within the first 3 days of the course. Please note that  we do not have Credit Card facilities on our Bank Account, and  if you want to pay by Credit Card  with PayPal you must set up an account of your own before you come.

For the easiest and cheapest source of cash, we  would suggest you use your ATM card while you are here. But you must inform your bank that you are in Thailand or they will assume your card has been stolen!

For more advice on CHANGING MONEY you can click here.

LIVING-IN. Most of our students live here with us -- the place is beautiful. the food delicious, the company good, and above all the students get to spend a whole lot more time with Homprang and her family. Traditional medicine differs widely from region to region all over the world, and those differences have arisen not out of ignorance but out of the enormous variety in the cultural patterns, religious beliefs, family structures, diets, and climates of each region. We strongly recommend you immerse yourself in this training as deeply as you can by living here with us. And in the end that will be cheaper than living in a guesthouse in town anyway!

REFUNDS FOR MISSED MEALS. A refund for a missed lunch or dinner can be claimed by those who are here as  Room & Board Guests and by Students on Days-off, but you must tell us by 9.00am for a lunch (100 baht) and 1.00pm for a dinner (150 baht. There is no meal-refund for students on Study-Days.

NON-LIVE-IN STUDENTS  (SUSPENDED FOR COVID -- but it's changing, so do ask us about this.) Of course we understand that some students already have a place of their own in Chiang Mai and/or a significant-other who works in town, or whatever.  And we'll look after you well anyway, don't worry. (Non-live-in students must pay the same deposit as live-in students, but everybody is credited for the whole sum that we receive on their final bill, so nothing is wasted or lost.)
