Advanced Sideline - Phase 5 / FSM

  • Florida School of Massage Gainesville florida (map)

18 CEs for LMTs and Acupuncture.

Traditionally, in classical Thai Massage, the recipient assumes either a sitting, prone, supine or side line position. Of these postures a strong working knowledge of sideline and it's applications can be indispensable, particularly for working with pregnant clients, or those for whom lying on their stomach is uncomfortable or not possible. In this workshop we will modify all the material previously learned to accommodate these needs.

We will also undertake a stronger and more detailed knowledge of the energy lines in the side position and we will learn to apply different stances for different lines, customizing them to the individual needs of the client. In this fifth level training , we will apply knowledge previously gained while learning to trust in our intuition through the application of Ayurvedic principles. In this stage of learning, we will primarily be applying energy through the use of our feet and developing the sensitivity, balance and agility that naturally extends from this technique. With some emphasis being placed on the mutual source they share, we will explore Hatha yoga principals within the context of Thai Massage and utilize this knowledge in the shared benefit of recipient and practitioner alike.
