Basic Thai Massage Training Course - 3 Days
Sep 12, 2020 - Sep 14, 2020
Thai massage is all about family and community, and we are all about Thai Massage! Thai Massage was developed by the people of Thailand; it started out as a way to help other family members relax and recover after a long day of hard work. Often, the children would work on their parents, easing sore muscles and stretching them out. How great is that? So bring yourself, possibly a partner, and lets have some fun! In this class you will learn Basic Traditional Thai Massage techniques that are taught at The Old Medicine Hospital in Chiang Mai, Thailand, along with some Thai culture and philosophy. You will learn how best to apply Thai Massage compression and stretching techniques for your client with your fingers, thumbs, palms, elbows, knees and feet. You will learn proper body mechanics to ensure longevity in your practice of Thai Massage, and to help keep your body healthy and balanced.
After completing this class, you will be able to perform a 60-90 minute Thai Massage, and you will also qualify to take the intermediate, Level 2 course. Anyone can participate in this class, you do not have to be a massage therapist to learn basic Thai Massage. If you are a massage therapist you will earn 24 CEU's from NCBTMB.
