Thai Massage: Best of Both Worlds Introduction
This two-day course starts you on your journey toward a comprehensive Thai massage practice in Traditional Thai Medicine (TTM). This in-depth look into Thai massage is for the serious-minded student who wish the comprehensive knowledge to add to their practice or who look to become a certified Thai massage practitioner. The history, philosophies, culture, ancient healing postures and energy pathways (i.e Sen pathways) are shared with the participants of this course. Thai massage enhances flexibility, reduces muscle pain, relieves joint restrictions, softens fascia, and promotes rejuvenation and deep relaxation and, can help with pathologies and dis-ease in the body with advanced study. The two-day course will teach working on the extremities with stretch, compression, breath and working of the energy pathways. This will also indirectly help concerns of the lower and upper back since we know stretch and mobilization of the extremities help related, and connected structures. Thai massage excels in this philosophy. I look forward to sharing this ancient healing art of Thailand with you.
