Thai Massage: Art & Principles – 21 hours

Thai Massage, also known as Thai Bodywork, is an ancient healing art, said to have originated before the time of the Buddha. Often called the “lazy man’s yoga”, the receiver is passive and the practitioner stretches and compresses their body with assisted stretches, gentle twisting, rocking, tractioning, and energy work through the breath. When offering Thai Massage, we draw from thousands of years of healing, and incorporate elements of acupressure, massage, and deep muscle work through bodyweight mechanics. This helps the receiver to relax into the parasympathetic nervous system to naturally release blocked energy held in the body. This is a holistic practice which is designed to bring the body, mind, and spirit back to balance, and to ignite the body’s natural abilities to heal. It is an excellent compliment to both active lifestyles, and to lifestyles where one does not get enough movement.
