Your Level 1 Certificate is valid when presented to the school in Thailand to advance to Level 2.
  •  Traditional Thai Massage is a unique form of body therapy dating back over 2,500 years to ancient times.  This form of massage incorporates gentle rocking, deep stretching and rhythmic compression to create a truly unique and therapeutic massage experience for the recipient.  Discover how Thai Massage is both relaxing and therapeutic.

    • Students will learn a total of 68 sequences for the whole body in the Supine Position from feet up to the head that combine passive yoga-like Stretches and include some assisted inversion stretches such as Shoulder Stand, Plow and Happy Baby.  Seated work includes assisted stretches such as Cat-Cow and other work on spinal mobility.
    • Learn how to apply Thai Massage using your feet, elbows, forearms, thumbs and palms to target the legs, feet, hips and back to create a dynamic and unique repertoire for your clients.
