Bridging course


to UK Standard

For those students who have trained with the Sunshine Network in Thailand , or have a clear foundation of the work of 'Asokananda style' Thai massage it is possible for you to take a Bridging course with one of the TTYMA accredited schools.

The Bridging course will enable you to convert your intensive (overseas) practitioner course into a UK recognized qualification that will enable you to access professional organizations (such as Embody) and UK professional indemnity insurance.
Obtaining this UK status will enable you to charge clients becoming a professional therapist.

OrchidPlease note that the most cost effective way to complete the Bridging course is to join a current course to attend practice days/mock and final examinations. This however, does mean that a longer time duration is required to convert the qualification. A mix of course/practice day and private/individual sessions can be arranged.
