Dynamic Thai Massage

Post Image

Prerequisite: Level 1 and 2 Thai Massage
Duration: 18 Hours   Times: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The primary focus of this course is to teach you how to use continuous movement, rocking movements, and dynamic stretches and joint mobilizations. You will learn to use your core to create this movement and connect with the recipient.

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 builds on students' existing skills from the first two levels of Nuad Boran training. We do not teach students new sequences but instead show them alternative and extra techniques to add to their existing sequences. Students must already know how to perform a Thai massage in all four positions: supine, side-lying, prone and sitting.

Students will spend the majority of their day learning Thai massage techniques. There will be two students per Thai massage mat. The instructor will first demonstrate a set of techniques to the students. The first group of students will then practise these techniques on their partner by following the instructor through the sequence, and then the student will switch places, and the second group of students will practice on the first group.

There will be an hour at the end of each day for students to stay and practice if they wish. The instructor will be available to help during this extra time.

The final day will have two periods of demonstrations in the morning and two periods of practical examination in the afternoon. The week will end with a short closing program during which students will receive their certificates.

The dynamic techniques in this course integrate directly with the Level 1 and 2 courses of both the Sirius Health and ITM curriculum. You will learn 37 new movements to integrate with your Thai massage by the end of this course.
