Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai – Day One

What a wonderful first day at the Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai (TMC). The school is incredibly organized, friendly, and professional. We had a stellar orientation this morning after receiving our lockers, massage clothing, Thai Manual, and welcome tea. My classmates are from the USA, Canada, Russia, Romania, Chile, France, Australia and Kazakhstan. Motivations for taking the course were as varied as the occupations we represented; from Massage Therapists, to a Lawyer, to a Circus Performer. What’s not to love about this mix.

Not only did I learn some great Thai techniques this afternoon but I also learned some circus moves on a silk rope hanging from a tree at the canal by the North Gate of Old Chiang Mai City. No photos are allowed in the classrooms at TMC so the only photos you will see here are of circus moves. You’ll just have to trust me I am actually here to continue my studies in Thai Massage. And although I could pretend that the photo in silhouette is me after lesson one from classmate Boris of Chile, that just wouldn’t be right now would it?

During lunch at the Market across the street I tried the Thai delicacy of fried, salted crickets. Mmmm, now I have a new favourite snack.
