Thai Massage combines the best of yoga, massage, meditation and energy work into a powerful healing modality. Among its many benefits, clients report an amazing ability for the massage to help remove tension, eliminate pain in the neck, shoulders, back and legs and to feel more youthful, deeply relaxed and refreshed.
That is because Thai Massage gets the body to move how it was designed while combining customized massage techniques. As such it helps clients to heal themselves naturally.
What’s more, you learn to give it as a meditation in loving kindness and compassion. As such the benefits are shared and they are profound. By design you’ll learn to massage so that it is at least as good to give as it is to receive.
This is a class designed for yoga teachers, massage therapists and those without any experience. In addition to the massage itself, yoga teachers will be able to gain confidence and knowledge for giving assists, incorporate Thai Massage into their classes and have a new treatment to offer private students. Massage therapists will be able to start offering a new modality to their clients right away. And those without any experience can give a high-level massage even after one weekend of training.
In this course, you will learn a complete 75-minute massage:
• How to massage back, shoulders, legs, feet, head and hands;
• The secrets of developing intuitive touch;
• How to get started on a successful Thai Massage career
This course is accredited with CMTNB for continuing education (pending) and can be used as continuing education with Yoga Alliance.
Required Reading: ‘Thai Massage: Unlocking the Secrets of Universal Touch’, by Shai Plonski may be purchased at the studio or on the first day of class.
This is the first of two levels of the Still Light Centre Primary Certification Program. Students will be required to complete the two levels and a series of practice massages as part of the certification process, but will already be able to give a complete 75-minute massage after finishing this class.
