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

Traditionally performed on a mat on the floor, Thai massage is a modality that incorporates stretching techniques in the form of yoga-like postures and a meditative approach to the work based in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. The objective of this course is to offer students an alternative way of giving Thai massage, for those who may have physical limitations for working on the floor, or for settings where only a massage table is available.

Additionally, this course endeavors to introduce an eastern-based massage modality that will provide therapists with wider marketing potential to employers and clients.
