THAI 1: INTRODUCTION TO THAI MASSAGE
18 CEs for LMTs and Acupuncture.
Over the course of this first workshop, students will learn an hour and a half long form. Practiced on the floor, this form enables the therapist the use of elbows, knees, forearms and feet in a comfortable and efficient way that utilizes the body dynamic and ones own weight to distribute the force required for the application of the relevant techniques. The recipient lies relaxed and loosely clothed while the practitioner guides them through a series of yogic asanas and applies balancing touch to the body’s major energy lines and points. Thai Massage is an art whose ultimate objective is a perfected self-awareness through the joy of a mutually beneficial healing dance. Level 1 provides the necessary foundation for future techniques to be based upon, but also can serve as a stand alone practice, in and of itself, as students will learn a complete form during this class.
