Thai Massage School

CATA is a graduate-level massage training facility in the heart of Chelsea, NYC.

Thai massage is one of CATA’s core graduate studies programs dedicated to the tenets of well-rounded Thai massage practice.

Join us for opportunities to learn, practice and grow in a community of passionate practitioners! Our courses offer a variety of approaches to learning the art, theory and history of Thai bodywork.
These sessions offer a valuable opportunity for supervised practice with the benefit of also receiving the work, providing a fully proprioceptive understanding of the various techniques.
Students can take individual classes, enroll in the Apprentice Program, or delve even deeper into the study of Thai massage with the Immersion Program. You determine the pace, we provide the experience.

Here’s what we offer.

Students can take individual classes, enroll in the Apprentice Program or delve even deeper into the study of Thai massage with the Immersion Program.

Classes

Individual classes are offered in two ways.
Weekly 2-hour time slots are better for giving students an opportunity to practice and assimilate the material between the lessons.
“Intensives” are great for those who have already taken the courses and want to have a refresher, or for the people who want to maximize their exposure on every trip to our classroom.

Clinic

Each clinic is guided by a leader who will include as many ways to address the health concerns a client may pose as possible during the time frame. The leader will also make recommendations for improving your posture and body mechanics. After the first round, we take some time for feedback from one another and get ourselves ready to trade places with our partners. If you have already begun learning Thai massage and would like to increase your understanding, this is a great forum for you to consider.

Apprenticeship

If you have decided to focus on Thai massage you can combine the classes and the clinic to maximize your exposure and proceed to master the art of Thai Massage.

Immersion

If your goal is to master the art of traditional Thai Massage you will want to consider our immersion program.
