This Thai massage course presents specialized techniques targeting the upper body using a massage chair. Working on clients in the seated position gives therapists the opportunity to market and provide Thai massage in diverse settings (events, road races, airports, street fairs, nail salons, etc.).
The course consists of three consecutive weekly lessons in which students immediately pair up and decide who is up and who is down. After an appraisal of the receiver’s health history, the balance of the time will be divided equally between giving and receiving, so each participant can expect to receive work from an experienced therapist who is watching the teacher performing the demos on another body.
Each unit also stands on its own as a set of specialized treatments catering to many people with hard-working hands. Students may choose to participate for just 1 or 2 days, but to earn CE credits all three parts must be attended. The intention is for this to be beneficial for students even if they have already attended the unit in the past, since they will likely pair up with a different LMT each time.
There will be a two-hour Thai Massage Clinic after every class, so students have the option to join and take advantage of the opportunity to practice more moves under the teacher’s supervision.
Prerequisite: Course is open to licensed massage therapists.
