The great educational techniques, love and patience of teachers help you learn how to do a therapeutical massage in a warm and familiar environment.

I totally recommend the courses either if you are looking for a new career, just as a hobby or you are interested in learning the secrets of the energy lines and the good that Thai massages bring not only to the receiver but also to you, the giver (A win-win!)"

•  "I recently spent a week at Thai Hand in Berlin for one-on-one training with Jorge. From the moment he opened the door that Monday to greet me I knew I was in good hands. A warm, friendly, and highly skilled teacher he is. The program was extremely well organized and flowed from one day to the next: intense, but not too intense. Relaxed, but not too relaxed. ;) It was just right, and I felt well equipped by the end of it to go and practice what I had learned and to evolve on the solid foundation I had received in that week. Thank you Jorge!"
