Thai massage is energy work…applied by physical means. Join us in learning an intuitive approach to the basic foundations of Thai style bodywork in our 4-day course. We’ll cover fundamental Thai massage techniques along with some history, cultural aspects, and self-care, plus, we’ll dip into commonly used Thai medicinal herbs and learn how to incorporate them into your bodywork. To ensure a sustainable practice, we guide you through proper body mechanics and how to relax into position, making your efforts feel quite effortless. An introduction to the Thai energetic system and its connection through the use of Thai poultice work called luk pra kob, round out the course. We practice in the traditional style, on a mat, on the floor. We have mats available for use during class, although, feel free to bring your own mat or futon to use if you prefer. Each participant receives a poultice and an illustrated handbook of all techniques and topics covered in class. Our classes are small and intimate with two instructors to ensure a quality learning experience. You’ll finish with a thorough understanding of the foundations of a versatile, compassionate healing art, that is, Thai Bodywork.
Peter Bird and Melanie Eldridge have combined 40 years of experience practicing and instructing in the healing arts and bring Metta, patience, and compassion, which is at the heart of Thai bodywork, to each class. Our style of practice and instruction is reflective of our time spent with beloved Master Ajahn Pichest Boonthumme in Hang Dong, Thailand.
