Thai Yoga Massage Module 1 is designed to provide the student with a solid foundation of knowledge of how to work Thai Massage in the Supine and Seated positions.

The Thai Yoga Massage Mat-Based techniques taught in this course incorporates gentle rocking, deep stretching and rhythmic compression to create a truly unique and therapeutic massage experience for the recipient. It is both relaxing and therapeutic. 

Explore the healing potential of Thai Massage! This 2,500 year old healing wisdom incorporates the use of 'Metta' that is taken from the Buddhist philosophy of imparting loving kindness on all beings and is often referred to as the Lazy Person's Yoga. Recent research has found Thai Massage to have positive health benefits to easing low back pain, enhancing flexibility, lowering blood pressure and opening up the internal energy flow of the body to increase overall health.

This method of body work is performed with the recipient fully clothed, using no oils on a floor based mat. This techique is very versatile, in that most of it may also be performed on a Massage Table. Students who wish to bring a Massage Table to the course to practice on, are welcome to do so!

What you will learn in this course:

  • Learn a total of 68-Thai Yoga Massage sequences for the entire body with the recipient in the Supine and Seated positions, from feet up to the head.
  • Learn how to apply Thai Yoga 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.
  • Learn the history, rules, methods, benefits, directions and abbreviations of Thai Yoga Massage.
  • The use of acupressure, reflexology and compressions will be applied on the 'Sen Energy Lines' to initiate the movement of internal energy in the body. The Sen Lines are similar to those found in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Classroom studies will include work on 3-major lines for the legs (Kalathari, Itta, Pingkala, Sahatsarangsi & Thawari), plus 1-major line on the upper body and arms (Kalathari). The health benefits of working these lines will also be explored.
  • Learn how to perform assisted Inversion Yoga Stretches such as 'Shoulder Stand', 'Plow', 'Frog' and 'Happy Baby', plus some popular Yogic stretches in the seated position such as 'Cat-Cow'.
  • You will have lots of opportunity to both practice and receive on your partner during the course. Each segment begins with introduction and Teacher Demonstration, after which time, students are guided through their practice. Begin with short sequences and progressively lengthen the time so that students have the opportunity to practice a 1-hour long Thai Yoga Massage treatment on their partner.
  • After the training, students will be able to offer up to a 2-hour massage, if not longer. There is a lot of wonderful material in this course and so that students may customize treatments to match the needs of their clients.
  • Sequences of the Thai Massage & Yogic Stretches are presented in a step-by-step sequence in your workbook and include diagrams and abbreviations that describe each step. This makes it easier to follow along for your future practice.
