Course Policies

  1. Students acknowledge that Thai Massage courses require some physical exertion and hands-on contact with other students who are also learning new techniques. This may be strenuous and although great care is taken to protect students and guide them through safe practice, as with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated and may occur.
  2. It is every students responsibility to consult with a physician prior to and regarding participation in a Thai Massage course and to certify that they are physically and mentally fit and would have no medical condition that prevents that student from taking the class.
  3. It is every students responsibility to communicate with the teacher prior to the start of a course if there are any physical or mental conditions/injuries/limitations to be made aware of so a  teacher can modify course content and customize massage techniques for the best interest of the student and the class.
  4. Students agree to communicate with the teacher immediately if they experience any pain or discomfort in a class and a mutual decision will be made as to whether or not to continue with the class. A student understands that if she/he chooses to continue that the teacher will make every effort to reinforce safe practices and that may include any modifications to the planned curriculum and techniques that are taught to accommodate the student. That may include having the student observe some or all parts of the class rather than engaging in physical exchange of the massage if it is deemed that is in the student and class’ best interests.
  5. If students wish to discontinue with a course for any reason, then the refund and credit policies mentioned above will be applied, namely the ability to transfer any unused money and/or days paid to retake the course at a later time and within a one-year period.

  8. Students release and discharge Still Light Centre, its owners, directors, teachers and staff from all liability, claim demand or action that students may have related to the loss, theft or damage of any personal property while at a Still Light course or centre
