Thai massage, an ancient form of bodywork drawing its roots from the Buddhist temples of Thailand, Ayurveda, and Yoga, consists of a series of yoga-like stretches, which the therapist performs on the clothed client on a mat on the floor. This 30-hour course covers the back and side-lying positions and offers additional seated work beyond Level 1. Sen lines (energy lines), acupressure points, and the correct use of the therapist’s body weight utilizing thumbs, palms, elbows, knees, and feet are taught. Hara (abdominal) work is also included. Upon completion of Level 2, participants will be to perform a 60-90 minute Thai Bodywork treatment. Each day begins with an hour of guided gentle yoga to warm and prepare the body for the Thai Yoga practice. There is a 1 hour lunch break.
Suitable for massage therapists, yoga instructors, and individuals interested in learning this ancient and effective form of bodywork. CE’s are available for this course (see below.) We strongly encourage students to take both Level 1 and 2 in order to give a complete, full-body 90-120 minute Thai Bodywork treatment. These courses can be taken in either order.
