Thai Massage Training :: Basics Level 1 :: February 15-18, 2018

Thai massage is a healing and energetic therapy that consists of: rhythmic stretching, acupressure, body rocking movements, and assisted yoga postures. It covers the whole body, from head to foot. It supports the improvement of the immune system, lymphatic and circulatory system, stimulates the mobilization of toxins, and relieves stresses. It provides a feeling of peace and well-being in body, mind and spirit. It is a trans formative experience. This practice reveals deeply the way in which we move, interact, communicate and especially, how we touch people.

In this training, we have a therapeutic and practical approach to Thai Massage. You will re-discover your kind touch through different rounds of giving and receiving, while the teacher walks around to give direct and personal feedback. By learning the principles of gravity and body weight transfer we can work easier and comfortable. We will work on the Thai mat, on the floor, going through the postures for the giver and the fundamental techniques such as palming, thumbing, stepping, using our hands, forearms and feet. We address the body as a whole and our main focus is to share a sequence that helps to release lower back and sciatica nerve pain to most of the population. Our purpose is to offer an well rounded training with the necessary information to start your Thai massage journey. The training includes: history, anatomy, contraindications, recommendations, set up and practice.To feel comfortable while giving, and safe while receiving. It also includes a written test.

Learning Outcomes:

Students will demonstrate good body mechanics in thai massage. They will have the opportunity show the four body positions for the receiver. Students will identify which posture is best for the receiver. Students will demonstrate the right use of pillows. They will name the contraindications for the therapy. They will learn to test the range of motion of the receiver. Students will learn how to stretch, hips, legs, back and shoulders in a safe way.

Please be mindful: healthy knees are required to perform this treatment, we spend much time on our knees. 😊
