At this 2.5 day workshop you will get a taste of the theory and practice of Thailand Traditional Massage . Over 2,500 years old Thailand Traditional Massage is done on a padded floor, both practitioner and receiver are clothed comfortably to allow the application of deep Yoga-like stretches to the whole body. Treat ailments, using hands, elbows, feet, knees and legs.This workshop will be very informative, experiential and filled with demos, practice, energizing & limbering exercises & lots of fun. Students will learn a unique set of methods to enhance their bodywork experience. Students looking to enrich the scope of their practice and reinvent the ways in which they can treat their clients on or off the massage table will derive much benefit from this workshop as it will cover some material from the four-weekend Certification Course I offer in Thailand Traditional Massage.
Participants should wear comfortable clothing. Thai massage is done on the floor so please bring a Thai mat, heavy blankets, or a tatami mat to work on.
