We aim to hire experienced and skilled workers only to work with us, so, as far as education is concerned, we have put the level a bit higher.
From our Thai masseuses or masseurs, we require more than a 150-hour basic course, as well as require a state exam of Step 1. Not many massage staff have this. By the way that also mean we have only Thai workers. No cheap and unskilled labor from the Philippines, etc.
The certifications they receive are also given to the Thais only. Thai massage is something like their patent and other nations can attend a course, but not even a basic certificate with the stamp of a state office can not get. Some of our staff may have an additional course of more than 300 hours.
