This is an advanced Thai Massage course that presents specialized techniques targeting hand, wrist, forearm, shoulder girdle and low-back pain all on the first day. Day two follows with additional detailed hand massage and focuses on balancing the posterior and anterior torso. The third segment of the course integrates prone and seated protocols for the low-back and shoulder girdle to make it a tidy package for you to stand out from the crowd as a therapist, whether your goal is to enhance the therapeutic value for your customers or exchange treatments with other gifted colleagues who may have many options.
The course consists of three consecutive, weekly lessons in which the students immediately pair up with a classmate 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 member of the class 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.
There will be a two-hour Thai Massage Clinic 30 minutes after every class, so students have the option to join and have an opportunity to practice these moves again under supervision to improve retention.
Prerequisite: Your own Thai Massage practice, and/or some training and experience rendering Thai Massage.
- Students will learn many techniques that target problem areas for LMTs.
- Students will learn to recognize and correct body mechanics issues to improve career longevity and comfort.
- Students will learn techniques that may be applied to other situations such as table massage and chair massage.
