Traditional Thai Massage
Click Here for the full list of workshops offered during this Kalani Bodywork Training Intensive.
Traditional Thai Massage developed out of Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, Yoga, and Buddhist Philosophies of Mindfulness and Loving Kindness and is said to be over 2,500 years old.
Through a combination of acupressure and passive stretching the circulation of the client's life force energy is freed, creating health and vitality. Thai Massage is a dynamic therapy in which the therapist’s and client’s whole bodies are engaged.
In this course you will learn a thorough full body sequence based on the Northern Thai style. We will focus on using proper body mechanics and creating smooth transitions from technique to technique. Upon completion, you will know a sequence well enough to begin to practice it and make it your own. A manual with detailed instructions and color photos of the entire sequence as well as discussions of the theoretical aspects of Thai Massage is included in the course tuition.
Class sessions will be held each Friday from 9pm – 5:30pm.
