3 CEs NCBTMB/NY State Certified
Prerequisite: Some previous training/experience with Thai massage
This 3-hour Thai massage course presents specialized techniques targeting the upper body, catering to clients with hard-working hands and backs.
Students will immediately pair up. After an appraisal of the receiver’s health history, the time will be divided equally between giving and receiving, so each member of the class can expect to receive work from a therapist who is watching the instructor perform the demos on another body.
The demo begins with the feet and legs, but the intention is to connect with the client and then take a short route through the sensibility of a Traditional Thai sequence (without rushing) in order to get to the upper body within the first 10 minutes.
The remaining segment is a practice in multitasking as the hand, wrist and forearm massage can be performed while the practitioner uses the feet to massage the shoulder girdle and the back while holding the receiver in a twisted position.
Techniques will be performed on a mat, but students will find that they can easily adapt what they have learned to a massage table or chair.
Prerequisite: Course is open to licensed massage therapists who have some prior study and practice in Thai massage.
