About this Course:
An introduction to Thai Massage training, this bodywork is suitable for new students, massage therapists, body-workers, trainers, physical therapists, yoga teachers.
At the end of the course, the student will be able to give a complete 2 hours Thai massage, including supine, side lying, prone and seated positions. The techniques taught are not “beginner”, but instead foundational, meaning the therapist will continue to build on them in subsequent courses and are powerful and sophisticated.
In this course, we introduce the theory of energetic and functional anatomy and physiology, sen sip (Thai energy lines), Thai asanas or therapeutic postures, acupressure points and myofascial trigger points. We teach basic principles of western muscular anatomy, trigger point therapy and patterns of referred pain to provide the student with a much deeper diagnostic framework for client issues.
We place a strong emphasis upon body mechanics and practicing bodywork in a sustainable way. Many western style or table massage practitioners experience symptoms of occupational disability in hands, shoulders and arms due to reliance upon muscular strength of the arms and hands and a failure to understand the power of working from our center. We use our hands, feet, knees, elbows, forearms and whole body along with yoga principles to teach the student how to move in an efficient, elegant and powerful way. With strong fundamentals, Thai bodywork can be not only safe but beneficial for the practitioner, and will provide a deeply satisfying career that lasts many decades.
You will be amazed at what you learn in a week as we teach you the critical fundamentals of body mechanics, positioning, compression, stretches, energetic and much more.
You will learn your own valuable 2-hour professional sequence that you can immediately put to use with clients, friends and family. The focus of this training is to install principles of full-body movement through carefully refined teaching methods that have helped thousands of students learn this fantastic art.
