Over its 2500 year history, Thai Massage has evolved into a unique blend of pranayama breathing, meditation, hatha yoga, compassionate touch, energetic medicine and heart-based healing. In this three-day workshop, you will experience the power and beauty of Traditional Thai Massage through demonstrations with thorough explanations and hands-on giving and receiving.
You will learn to perform a Traditional Thai Massage with a selection of techniques from all four positions. By the end of the course, you will be able to give a flowing 90-minute to 2-hour massage the Thai way. When done properly, Thai Massage is as healing for the giver as the receiver, due to its focus on proper body mechanics and the use of leverage and gravity, rather than upper body strength. You and the client should both finish the session feeling relaxed and energized.
Thai bodywork can be studied and practiced for years, with always something new to learn. This course provides a basic foundation to start practicing Traditional Thai Massage safely and comfortably.
Longer and more advanced versions of this course are available.
