This course provides comprehensive training in Thai massage, equipping participants with the essential skills to perform this traditional technique safely and effectively. By the end of the program, you will have a robust understanding of Thai massage, including its history, origins, philosophy, and core principles.

The curriculum covers practical aspects such as preparing the massage space, selecting the right equipment, and setting the ambiance. You’ll learn how to establish client boundaries and ensure comfort throughout the session. Before beginning a massage, participants will practice stretches and warm-up movements for self-care to prepare physically for the session.

You will also gain knowledge about contraindications, learning when Thai massage is not advisable, and implementing safety precautions for vulnerable groups. The course addresses client-specific health considerations and teaches how to observe and understand the flow and transitions between different sequences in a Thai massage session.

Participants will learn to apply proper body mechanics and ergonomics to minimize strain and maintain correct posture, which helps prevent common injuries associated with Thai massage. The training includes mastering the four primary positions: Supine, Prone, Side-lying, and Seated, and ensuring proper body alignment and breath awareness.

You will be introduced to the energy lines (Sen lines) used in Thai massage and how they relate to bodily organs. Techniques such as proper compression pressure, passive assisted stretches, and the use of hands, thumbs, feet, and elbows will be practiced. Additionally, you will learn to transition smoothly between sequences and explore complementary therapies that enhance Thai massage.

The course also integrates Thai massage with other bodywork techniques and modalities. After completing at least 12 hours of practical Thai massage practice on fellow students, you will be able to perform a complete Thai mat massage and adapt these skills to a 90-minute table session.

Finally, you’ll leave the course with a personalized marketing plan, developed to help you effectively market and advertise your skills as a Thai massage practitioner. This training not only enhances your technique but also prepares you to confidently and skillfully integrate Thai massage into your professional practice.

Price $555 with $100 non-refundable deposit to hold our spot. (2 installment payment options available due before class begins)
