Principles of Thai Bodywork – Table Thai
Traditional Thai massage is done on mats on the floor, with clients clothed. The sequence incorporates yoga-like postures throughout the form that many clients, especially athletes, yogis and dancers, appreciate for its extensive full-body stretching routine.
Table Thai offers the massage therapist who might have physical limitations or limited space, an alternative to practicing on the floor. Additionally, Thai massage provides a practitioner with an alternative modality for giving fatigued hands, thumbs and minds a break from their typical massage regimen. Thai techniques can be incorporated into traditional Swedish massage or stand alone as a full-body massage session. From a marketing perspective, Thai Massage is becoming more popular and is a valuable asset for distinguishing oneself from a traditional Swedish practitioner.
In this class 2-day course, we will briefly explore the origin of Thai massage and how the techniques are used to induce a meditative state for allowing deeper work. The course will demonstrate techniques in supine, prone, seated and side-lying positions for performing a comprehensive full-body session. The class provides 16 continuing education credits.
Students should come dressed in athletic or yoga wear and bring a sheet and face cradle cover.
