Details & Description

TRAINING Description

This specialized course deals with advanced techniques and concepts. A variety of study modules focus on the following themes:

  • How to assess your clients through visual inspection, touch validation, traditional Thai element theory, and body language
  • Practice ways to cultivate graceful flow from one technique to another
  • Learn and practice new techniques for upper and lower body, with special emphasis on using intuition, breath awareness and good body mechanics
  • Use distraction techniques and transitional movements to help relax your clients
  • Learn and practice sensing techniques to dissipate energy blockages
  • Incorporate resting poses into your sequences…and much more.

Each day there is discussion, demonstration and practice. Students give and receive sessions, and the teacher guides and encourages you to organically integrate the new concepts and techniques into your own Thai massage styles and sequences.

This is a unique and challenging course that will help you to work on the mat in a deeper, more spiritual, and more focused way.
