5 Day Beginner Thai-Massage Course

This course is an introduction to a unique bodywork modality and a deeper experience of it’s main principles – loving-kindness and compassionate touch – from where we must begin our Thai massage journey. Thai yoga massage is an ancient bodywork practice that stems from yoga of India and Buddhism, yet more importantly, it is a magical journey of transformation, using meditation, presence and intuitive listening to encourage self-healing… for both the receiver and the giver.

Rooted in traditional Thai massage theory, we will work with static and dynamic techniques, passive stretching and acupressure, and learn the energetic anatomy used in this tradition. We will also draw on elements of fasica release therapy, traditional Chinese medicine and oesteopathy.

In this course, you will walk away with a 1.5 hour massage sequence to practice on healthy friends and family, as well as an experience of understanding skills that you can bring into your daily life, including compassionate touch, sensitivity, intuitive listening, and letting go of tension. A print manual is provided to help you continue practicing at home.

After these 5 magical days, you will have:

✦ a 1.5 hour massage sequence to practice on healthy friends and family
✦ a print manual to support you in continuing the practice at home
✦ developed skills that you can bring into your daily life

✦ explored compassionate touch, sensitivity, intuitive listening, and letting go of tension
✦explored a deeper connection to yourself and others

In this intensive, we will joyfully explore the powers of touch and connection while practicing a routine that covers the body from feet to head. Different elements of Thai yoga massage will be explained along with its roots and principles.
