Summary of what the video training will include
This course will present the history and technique of Thai Massage. Thai Massage blends styles from Asian neighbors passed down through the generations. The Thai method uses point pressure, muscle stretching and compression, done in a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking. In Thai massage it is not just the hands that are used to free tension from the recipient’s body, but the therapist’s feet, forearms, knees, and elbows as well. It is applied on a mat on the floor. The work is done fully clothed and no oils are required. Thai medical massage can move deeper into the mechanical functions of the body, working with deep muscle tension and joint mobility as well as nerve, muscle and ligament balancing.
