Prerequisite: Level 3: Advanced Nuad Boran
Duration: 30 Hours   Times: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The primary focus of this course is to teach students how to use Thai massage to address specific ailments such as shoulder, hip, back or knee pain. Students will learn the location of points for each disorder and the Thai massage techniques to work correctly on these points for effective healing. By the end of the course, students will be able to design Thai massage sequences that combine techniques from Level 1 to 3 with the new pressure points to address specific therapeutic issues.

The instructor, Grant Martens, is the owner and founder of Sirius Health and is recognized as a Registered Instructor and an Advanced Registered Thai Therapist by the Thai Healing Alliance International (THAI). Grant is also a Certified Instructor for the International Training Massage School (ITM) of Chiang Mai, Thailand, and is licensed by the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada (NHPC) as a Thai Massage Practitioner.

This course will begin with a half-hour of Wai Kru and Reusi Dat Ton each day. The first four days will then follow with a short lecture. Course content on day one will teach students how Traditional Thai Medicine classifies the body in five layers and which Thai massage techniques work on each layer. We then learn how a traditional Thai healer would diagnose out-of-balance elements on day two. We will discuss everything that a practitioner needs to consider before, during, and after treatment on day three. And on day four, we will learn how the Buddha Dharma has historically informed Thai practitioners of ethical responsibilities. There will be a short quiz for each section that the instructor will review the next day before the subsequent lecture.

On the afternoon of the fourth day, guest volunteers will come to the school act as clients for each student. Students will practice giving and reviewing intake forms with their clients. The instructor will then lead the students through the entire sequence, after which each student will practice a follow-up with their client.

The final day will have two periods of practical examination; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. In the morning, Group A will do their practical exam using Group B as clients, and in the afternoon, Group B will do their exam using Group A as clients. The week will end with a short closing program during which students will receive their certificates.
