As of March 1st, 2024, our Course Fees went up by 10% -- our first increase in over 10 years! As always the student fee covers everything: the Course, the Rasidaton, full Room & Board (full 'Pension'), Herbal Steam Baths, and the use of all our facilities.

CLICK ON TITLE FOR MORE INFOEMATION

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 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.

 80hr THAI MASSAGE COURSE  

(Live-in: 12 study days + 1 day off = Total Bt 30,000. 25% Deposit = Bt 7,500       CLICK ON TITLE FOR MORE INFORMATION

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.

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. Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) is included in all of Homprang's courses, but it's particularly important in this one.

60hr HERBAL WORKSHOP & 'FOOD AS MEDICINE' 

(Live-in: 9 study days + 1 day off =  TOTAL Bt22,800. 25% Deposit = Bt5,700)         CLICK ON TITLE FOR MORE INFORMATION

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!

150hr THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE COURSE (Live-in:  22 study days + 3 days off = TOTAL Bt 56,400.  25% Deposit = Bt14,100)        CLICK ON TITLE FOR MORE INFO.

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 many other ailments not usually addressed by Thai Massage. A background in Thai Massage is very helpful but not essential, and 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, 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.

If you are also one of a number of students who would like to go on to the ADVANCED Therapeutic Course , this course would  make you eligible.

 150hr ADVANCED THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE COURSE      

(Live-in:  22 study days + 3 days off = Bt 56,40025% Deposit = Bt14,100)      CLICK ON TITLE FOR MORE INFORMATION

This class is for Professional Therapists who have already taken Homprang's 150hr Special Therapeutic Course at least once, have been using the techniques they  learned from that experience in their own practices, and would like to be involved with Homprang and other professional colleagues in the development of further techniques and therapies.

Thai Massage is not just an ancient codified ritual but an evolving art, indeed all serious therapists know how much can be learned from one's own humble, patient, evolving practice.  A substantial number of Homprang's students have now become professional colleagues, and she regards this class as more  a Peer-group 'Lab' than a Training Program.

A copy of the  new 2024 edition of the 150hr Therapeutic Massage Manual with illustrations by Ariana Dietze will be the starting point -- her new drawings are a vigorous feast in themselves. And Homprang is developing the book yet further right now with niece Pichaya ('Pop') Chaleekanha at the iMac OS.13 Sonoma controls.

HELP FOR NEW STUDENTS

2024

Live-In Students are now charged Bt 2,400 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, and the use of all our facilities including  bicycles and wifi.

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. (We offer free airport pickups on the day before a class begins -- just give us the Time, Airline and Flight Number.) 

When does the course start & end? The herbal steam bath at 5.30pm  and dinner at 7pm the night before the course begins are part of the 1st Day which 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 1,200 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.' The charge is Bt 1,200 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 a good 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 4.5% -- any transfer fee is 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 1,200 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 200). 

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. But students do get refunds for missed meals on Days-off.

[Exchange Rate (June 14th, 2024) - $1.00 = Bt 36.6; 1.00 = Bt39.2]

 


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 the right of each course above 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 and 1.00pm for a dinner. There is no meal-refund for students on Study-Days.

NON-LIVE-IN STUDENTS  (SUSPENDED post-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.)
