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 a well-rounded Thai massage practice. Each class incorporates Thai theory, history, and culture in addition to practical Thai massage training, which highlights specific Thai protocols.

For new and advanced Thai massage students, CATA offers a variety of ways to participate, study, and practice Thai massage. Students can take Individual classes, enroll in the Apprentice Program, or delve even deeper into the study of Thai massage with the Immersion Program. Email michael@catanyc.com for information about the Apprentice and Immersion programs.

The Apprentice Program is an excellent opportunity for licensed massage therapists who are eager to gain a better understanding of Thai Massage so they can use it in their practice.

Our courses can be taken in any order, allowing you the flexibility to tailor your learning experience to your specific needs. Additionally, we offer the convenience of taking Individual Classes, which enables you to pace yourself according to your preferences and time constraints.

For those students who intend to specialize in Thai Massage to truly master this modality, our Immersion Program is specifically designed for you. With this program, you will have the chance to delve into the intricacies of Thai Massage and explore its various aspects in great detail.

Depending on your desired pace, you can complete all of our offerings in as little as two years, or you can take your time and spread out your studies, one class at a time.

Join us for opportunities to learn, practice, and grow in a community of passionate practitioners!
