Certified Massage & Spa Trainings and Courses 

We offer the best massage therapy courses in Nepal taught by the most skilled and knowledgeable massage teachers in the country. The six most popular massage training courses that we offer are part of a traditional holistic technique that promotes healing and balance in the body and mind. "Holistic traditional massage" usually refers to a type of massage therapy that considers the patient as a whole—mind, body, and spirit—instead of concentrating only on certain physical conditions. It frequently combines traditional massage methods from many cultures and may include bodywork, energy balancing, and relaxation methods.

Swedish massage is a famous and frequently used type of massage for relaxing the muscles, body, and mind. The soothing strokes and kneading encourage relaxation, circulation improvement, and overall well-being.

  • Deep tissue massage: Deep tissue massage is a type of therapeutic massage that focuses on the deeper levels of muscles and connective tissue. For the best results in treating sports injuries or chronic pain, a deep tissue massage is recommended; however, the practitioner must be skilled in this technique, which we prepare you for. Strong pressure is applied with the knuckles, fist, thumb, arm, and elbow during deep tissue work to relieve tired and tight muscles as well as to release stress and stiffness that are deeply ingrained in your connective tissues and muscles.


  • Ayurveda massage: Ayurvedic massage is a therapeutic practice based on the principles of Ayurveda, an ancient holistic healing philosophy. With us, you will discover the most effective and unique Abhyanga ayurvedic massage technique. Ayurvedic oil is used in rubbing motions that are coordinated, rhythmic, and synchronized. The abhyanga massage is often performed by one or two therapists to improve circulation, promote relaxation, and aid in detoxification.

  • Hot-stone massage: We teach hot and cold stone massage therapy techniques based on body needs and medical conditions. The purpose of a hot stone massage is used to treat colds, keep the body warm, relieve tight muscles, and lessen chronic muscle tension. On the other hand, cold stone massage is used to treat skin conditions, injuries of the body, reduce swelling and inflammation. Cold stone massage, has a calming effect on the nervous system. The refreshing sensation of the cold stones can help reduce stress and anxiety.

  • Shiro-dhara:  Shiro-dhara is a traditional Ayurvedic treatment in which warm sesame oil, buttermilk, coconut water, or medicate oil is continuously applied to the forehead, commonly referred to as the third eye chakra, the spiritual understanding that is said to be an essential energy point.  Headache, high blood pressure, migraine, anxiety, insomnia, and depression can all be treated by shiro-dhara. The treatment is thought to balance the energy flow in the head region, which enhances mental clarity and attention.

  • Thai massage: Thai massage is a blend of acupressure and yoga stretching that includes twisting, back bending, and inversions based on the client's demands and comfort level. Thai massage is performed dry, using a loose, comfortable cloth.  The practitioner uses rhythmic pressure on various part of the body.  The patient is guided into various yoga postures, and the therapist applies pressure and facilitates the stretches with palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees, and feet. This aids in the improvement of flexibility, joint mobility, and energy flow.
