Learn Thai Massage in a supportive, relaxed and playful environment. In this hands-on class, participants will learn the body mechanics and techniques necessary to give a relaxed and flowing Thai Massage. Traditional Thai Massage, also known as Thai Yoga Bodywork uses the techniques of leaning pressure, compression along energy lines, joint mobilization and traction, as well as passive yoga-like stretches to increase flexibility and joint range of motion, reduce muscle tension and pain, calm the nervous system and deepen an overall sense of well-being.

Thai Massage is done on a mat on the floor. It is helpful that participants have good body awareness and are comfortable moving at times on their knees. After completing this 15 hour class, participants will be able to give a 45 minute to 1 hour Thai Massage. Each participant will receive an instructional manual, DVD and certificate of completion. The class is open to massage therapists, yoga teachers and students, as well as anyone with a desire to care for others using the therapeutic techniques of Thai Massage. Massage Therapists will receive 15 CE’s towards their continuing education requirements.
