LOI KRATHONG/XMAS SERIES 2022

   
       

Nov. 15th to
Dec. 9th, 2022

 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.

Dec. 13th to 22nd, 2022

 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.

Jan. 3rd to 27th, 2023

 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 many other ailments 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.

March 31st to

 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.

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.

The charge is Bt 1,100 and includes full room & board (full pension) and the use of all our facilities. If you decide to go off and do something adventurous on a Day-off there can be a  refund for missed meals, 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.

Extra Days. Many students choose to stay on after the class ends -- that's what we call  'Extra Days.' Students doing 2 or 3 courses in a row can also stay with us for all the days between the courses if they wish..

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

 

   FAQs About Course Registration

DEPOSITS. Our classes are closed at 12 and often fully booked. For this reason we must 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 again before the beginning of the class. Indeed, we keep a WAITING LIST just for this purpose. On the other hand, cancellations happen rarely. and refunds can take some time as the enrollment sorts itself out.

You should click on the PayPal BUTTONS to pay the deposit which includes a +/- 4% fee to cover the PayPal Transfer and Currency Conversion charges. To pay with your Credit Card you must first click on the PayPal Button and then click on Pay with my credit or debit card at the bottom of the PayPal pop-up window. Otherwise you must have a PayPal account of your own (you may be able to save some money by setting one up before you come).

SETTING UP A PayPal ACCOUNT OF YOUR OWN. If you have a PayPal account of your own you can  make a payment without using the Button.  We credit students for whatever sum arrives in our account, so nothing is ever lost, for you or for us. Indeed, more and more students are using PayPal to pay their final bill as well.

FULL PAYMENT  The rest of your student fees should be paid by the end of the first week of the course. If you are paying by Credit Card  you must have opened a PayPal account of your own before you come to Thailand, otherwise you may find you are unable to use your Credit Card with us as we do not have Credit Card facilities on our Bank Account. Indeed, we would suggest you arrange with your home bank to use your ordinary ATM card while you are here, which is quick, safe, and probably the cheapest way to obtain cash in Thailand. But you must inform your bank you are in Thailand or they will assume your card has been stolen!

LIVE-IN STUDENTS. 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 we're 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 1.) Room & Board Guests and by 2.) 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 as the Live-in Student rate is already a reduced fee.

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.)

WHEN TO ARRIVE & DEPART. Live-in students are expected to arrive the day before the class begins because the Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) is at 7am on the first morning! You are welcome to arrive even earlier than the day before and can also stay on after the class finishes, as many students do.
