Event Description

Thai Yoga Massage is an interactive form of meditative bodywork that combines yoga, stretching, gentle rocking, and rhythmic compression along energy lines.  In this 2-day workshop, participants will learn to use their hands, forearms, elbows, and feet to open and gently release blockages that inhibit the flow of energy, or Qi. While traditional Thai Yoga Massage is performed on a mat, this class has been adapted to those who work on a massage table.  It is suited for clients who are unable to receive bodywork on a mat and is a great way to introduce clients to Thai Yoga Massage. Essential elements of Thai Yoga Massage, its historical context, and fundamental techniques applied in the supine, prone, side-lying, and seated positions will be taught. Participants will receive a complementary workbook with photographs and detailed descriptions of an introductory sequence of poses, which comprise a 60-90 minute full-body Thai Yoga Massage session. Participants will practice draping techniques and learn when to integrate a variety of bodywork techniques such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Reflexology into this routine. Class will begin each day with a one-hour yoga warm-up. The course will have lecture, demonstration, and hands-on components. Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion for 16 NCBTMB CE hours.

Thai Massage

Thai massage works the relaxing effects of massage, the stretching of yoga, and the spiritual wellness of energy work into one session. The modality is more physically dynamic than a typical massage. Sessions are performed on a floor mat with the client fully clothed. The practitioner helps the client through yoga-based, assisted stretches while pressing on energy and pressure points along the body. Because of it’s similarity to yoga, some people refer to Thai massage as “Thai yoga massage” as well.

Along with teaching the modality as a whole, Thai massage training can teach you how to improve your flow with better sequencing, incorporate the classic Thai herbal balls or start using your bare feet as tools. You can also learn how to adapt Thai techniques for table massage or work with special circumstances like pregnancy and disabilities.
