Table Thai is a 16-hour course that teaches students the fundamentals of a full-body Thai massage protocol performed on a massage table.

Thai massage is an amalgamation of TCM in the form of Shiatsu and Ayurvedic medicine from India. It incorporates the yoga-like poses from Ayurvedic medicine with the energy work in Shiatsu for a comprehensive mind/body approach to bodywork. This class is designed for practitioners who have trouble working on their knees on the floor but want to offer their clients another modality that combines stretching and energy balancing in a complete meditative bodywork session.
