  1. Hi there,I found ITM to be a great school. I had aaerldy had some Thai massage training before I arrived in Chiang Mai so started there on level 3 and stayed on afterwards to complete the teacher training course.Very friendly staff and lots of fun too. I was always able to find answers to any questions I had so don’t worry about any language barrier.You will be taught a well structured massage and given the tools to customise/personalise your treatments for different individuals needs.I haven’t tried any other school in Chiang Mai so it would be unfair to comment on how they might compare. I’ve heard some say ITM was busier than they might like but I always felt I got the attention I needed.I really loved my time in Chiang Mai and learned so much from fantastic teachers. I hope to get back there maybe in 2013 fingers crossed.Wherever you decide to study I wish you a long and happy career with Thai Massage.All the very best.Rob
