Courses & Workshops

The study of this ancient healing art is open to any life-long learner who is interested in taking better care of his or her body, mind, and spirit.

Matthew's students come from all walks of life - including artists, educators, factory workers, business leaders and health care professionals.

Licensed massage therapists seeking continuing education hours for professional development will receive NCBTMB-approved certificates of completion.

Matthew is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB)
as a continuing education Approved Provider (#450352-07).

Dear prospective students,

After offering the 200-hour Practitioner Certification Program in a class teaching format from 2007 until 2010 in the United States, followed by several years of teaching workshops internationally, I am led now to share the wisdom of this ancient healing practice primarily through private Thai Therapy Practitioner training using the time-honored apprenticeship model of instruction.

Towards this end, I accept and teach only two (2) practitioner program students at a time each year in order to preserve the high quality of the certification program and reduce the relatively high per-student cost of private apprenticeship instruction.

Program students can expect to receive an integrated approach to learning this traditional therapy (mind, body, spirit & nature) which emphasizes the importance of self-care through enhanced breath awareness and gravity-based body mechanics - while also cultivating a capacity to sense and address energetic blockages within the body.

All accepted Thai Therapy Practitioner program students will earn NCBTMB-approved certificates of completion during the apprenticeship program.

If you are interested in pursuing private Thai Therapy Practitioner training, please contact me via email at to schedule a preliminary interview.

With sincere gratitude,

J. Matthew Mandeville
