HONESTY AND CREDENTIALS MATTER
Today, expanding world of massage field being an important healthcare as alternative healing, interested learners are seeking globally in the field of massage knowledge. For people wishing to have quality and genuine education in Thai massage, the task of selecting massage school and college in a faraway places—like Thailand is a major task.
The prudent way is to investigate education places for their standard, integrity, honesty, quality and above all sincerely and trustworthy.
Credentials stand for education. The school or college must earn approved license from government agency to function and operate as such. This is one part that students need to look for. However, like everything else in the world, sometimes, only stamp of approval may not be sufficient.
What would be the right way to seek the right one then?
What matters more than credentials is honesty. The education providers must be able to perform what they promise to give and stand for the principle of truth and quality education. Hence, choosing a place for education by looking for having both credentials and honesty is the first step to succeed in one’s learning adventure.
